We had one last stop to make before we continued on home to North Ranch. This is a picture of my son Mikel's home in Tucson where he lived after his retirement from the US Army. You will remember that we lost Mikel back in May of 2010. His wife Karen and our two Grandsons, Mikel Jr. and Stephen, still live here and we stopped to pay them a visit.
This is DIL Karen. She welcomed us to Happy Hour.
Karen prepared a lavish feast for us.. She remembers how much I enjoy Happy Hour! It was delicious and healthy also!
Here are the boys, Stephen 14 on the left and Mikel 17 on the right. WOW, what big boys! They aren’t used to having their pictures taken and weren’t too keen on that but it worked out fine. I remember when they were toddlers. We babysat them and I remember pushing them around in a stroller. They aren’t quite as big as me yet but close! It was great visiting with Karen and these fine young men and finding out about their busy lives. I know they all miss their Dad very much, as do we. However, in his honor, we must continue on as this is what he would want.
We quickly got settled into our place here at North Ranch, AZ. Here is Ms. Megabyte and me as we spent most of the day yesterday watching our two favorite football teams. We didn't do as good as we did last week....Nebraska and Florida State both got beat.:-(
Ms. Pat attended her first line dance Friday and I continued getting things uncovered, unloaded and somewhat organized. Gotta take things slow, ya know......wouldn’t want to work myself out of a job! :-)
We have two new followers, #207 and #208 that I would like to Welcome aboard.
Glad to have you stop by and hope you will join us often and please comment below, we love to hear from our readers. We get around 350 readers each day we publish. If it wasn’t for all of you readers and all the comments I get, I would be tempted to sign off the Blog business. I get stymied sometimes as to what to write about and wonder if I should give it up. Thank you for sticking with me and all the encouraging words. It is you all that keep me going,.....believe me!
We are leaving in a few minutes to attend our favorite Church in this area.....First Southern Baptist Church in Wickenburg. We're looking forward to seeing Pastor Dean, his lovely wife Rhonda and all of our Church family. We have truly missed them.
God Bless you all!
It was a GREAT WEEK!!!!
PS: I wanted to tell you how many miles we drove the Motorhome from the time we left Custer till we arrived at North Ranch....4,200 Total Miles!!. Normally, it's just over 1,000 miles from Custer to North Ranch but we kinda took the "long way" home so we could visit our kids and in search of some good ole' Florida seafood! :-) Thanks again to all the kids for a GREAT visit, their gracious hospitality and all the good seafood.
