And We Are Home

We left Billings this morning in Laci’s (our granddaughter) car—we needed to get a vehicle of our own plus open up our house—turn on the heaters, build a fire in the woodstove, turn the water back on, etc.  We will go back down to Billings on Tuesday morning. 

Our decision to go south was kind of sudden for me—remember, I had one day to pack the motorhome—well, my Christmas tree was still up at the time.  By the time we got the motorhome loaded that day I was way too tired to take down the tree—so when we walked in today, that was the first thing I saw and the first thing I did—got that tree down and all the Christmas stuff put away. 

This afternoon late we headed back into Big Timber to surprise Nat—Emmi ran in the door ahead of us so she was the first thing he saw—his smile would have lit a room!!  He was so glad to see her.  She will stay with Nat tomorrow when we go back down to the hospital. 

Michael is over there opening our big box of mail as I type this blog—he just made an excited noise—remember when we had the little roll over accident with the jeep when the roads were so slick?  We had to pay the $350 charge out of pocket for the towing in spite of the fact we have Good Sam roadside assistance.  The wrecker came out to the scene of our accident with the sheriff, the fire truck and the ambulance—it’s a small town, what can I say! –so we never had a chance to call Good Sam.  I called Good Sam, they requested a letter and today we received a check for the full amount!!!

As to why we took the rig to John and Brenda’s—Mike and Pat have a lovely lot in North Ranch outside of Congress—they are so gracious allowing all their friends full use of that lot.  Mike and Pat encouraged us to leave the rig in Congress but we knew this trip home might be a long term thing as in a couple months.  We didn’t want our rig on the lot if some of their other friends wanted to use it.  We knew other friends who had used the lot before were planning on being in Arizona.  Plus rumor has it that Rollie fella just might be bringing a rig out to Arizona. 

Thank you all so very much for the kind words, thoughts and prayers for our family—they are very much appreciated. 



  1. Glad you made it home safe and sound, and all things are as they should be at the house.... and I am glad you mentioned Nat with Emmi's excited greeting, so all is fine there?

  5. Hope Mike didn't have to hike up the hill to get the backhoe to get your road plowed.

  6. Two days offline and I see I missed a lot. Thinking of you and your family & sending the best healing. This probably means we'll miss you in Bouse, but I hope things work out and we get to see you later this winter.
