Quick Blog

Well, Rod, you were correct, we made it to my family home in Arkansas about 5pm this afternoon.  We traveled hard all day in a misty rain, making tracks!  Not only were we anxious to see family but we also had a goal—make it to the co-op fuel station my brother uses in Sheridan, AR before it closed.  We filled the coach with diesel at $2.80/gallon!!!  How long has it been since we’ve seen diesel that low priced???  The gentleman running the co-op told me he had sold 6000 gallons of diesel TODAY!! 

Emmi is glad to be running loose again and we have started seeing all the family—Mom had made some of Pioneer Woman’s corn/shrimp chowder—delicious, it sure hit the spot!  My great niece Elizabeth had a basketball game which they won—so all the attendees, my sister and her husband have straggled in tonight after the game.  I am sure that by tomorrow night the entire gang will have gathered and we will be doing what we do best—eating! 

Thanks for riding along with us on this trip.


  1. How is your Mom feeling? Glad both she and Emmi are doing good. Have a fantastic time with your family.


  2. Glad you arrived! Gee, what a great fuel price! You hit the jackpot, for sure. Enjoy your time with family.

  3. Sounds like a great family day with more to come. Gas down here is $2.31 - very travel friendly price I do say.

  4. With your "eye on the prize" those long travel days aren't too bad. Those fuel prices are a nice bonus on top of seeing family :-) Now you can relax and enjoy the comforts of family. Wonderful.

  5. Nothing beats spending time with family! Have a wonderful time.

  6. Corn and shrimp chowder sounds fantastic! Thanks for the link to the recipe. Enjoy your time with your family. :-)
