Thanks for Riding Along

This was my first - and only- stop in Colorado

First and Only Stop in Colorado


If many folks think Kansas is desolate, that is because they have not spent much time on the eastern plains of Colorado.

I pulled into Denver only six days shy of 16 months from the day I left.

North Carolina (2)
Idaho
Montana
North Dakota
Minnesota
Michigan
Wisconsin
Indiana (2)
Illinois (2)
Kentucky
Tennessee
Georgia (2)
Alabama (2)

Arkansas
South Carolina (2)
Florida
Virginia (3)
Pennsylvania (2)
New York

I have visited five foreign countries:
Ontario, Canada
Cuba
England
France

I have visited sites of significance for eight presidents:
Washington
Jefferson
Madison
Monroe
Lincoln
McKinley
Truman
Eisenhower
(I thought it was ten, but unless I read back over my entire blog I can't recall them!)

I have been contacted by so many old friends and relatives.
I have stayed with so many friends, relatives, and strangers. Thanks so much to all of you for all the good times and hospitality.
I have met so many new friends. My door is always open to all of you.

Well, maybe you had better wait until I get through redecorating. My house is sparsely furnished. I am not going to move my furniture back in until I paint, etc.

My young neighbor helped me unload the van. Even though it took many trips and it was rather warm, he proved we could still enjoy ourselves.

When most of the hard work was done, family showed up with flowers and a warm welcome home.

It has been quite a ride.
I don't regret a minute of it.
Thanks for riding along.
