Back home…..very very tired.

I arrived back home at 1:00 a.m. this morning. Very very tired. The funeral for my uncle was at 2:00 p.m. with a dinner and slide slow at the fellowship hall following the service. There were relatives I had not seen in 30 years. It was good to see them and see how much everyone had changed since childhood. The sad part of it all is that funerals are usually the only time and place people make the time to get together. It seems everyone has too much to do to keep in touch and before you know it a large portion of the uncles, aunts and cousins have passed away. Mom, Dad and I did not leave until after 5:00 p.m. and we agreed we would drive until we got tired then stop and find a hotel room. We were making great time until we came into Baton Rouge, LA. The traffic was stop and go and we were stuck there for over an hour in the pouring rain but surprising enough we were all wide awake so we decided to drive thru and get home.

John was scheduled to work at the mall today from 7 to 3 but got off early….around noon. Yeah!!!! He ran a few errands after work and since then we have been at home chilling out.

Remember to laugh everyday. Happy trails. Stay safe.
