We're Leaving on Our Vacation Today!

I will be busy packing today, and I am packing the computer, so this is goodbye until at least tonight. We will be leaving this evening. I know it sounds strange, to leave so late, but there is a reason for it. We bought our car in Winston-Salem (a couple hours from here), so we are going to go up there this evening and stay at a hotel. In the morning we will take the car to the dealership to have the oil changed and have the car checked over. Then we will leave for Iowa from there. Winston-Salem is right on the freeway we need to take, so it won't really take us very far out of the way.

We will try to always get hotel rooms that have wireless access, so I should still be in touch, at least long enough to check in and send the Welcome Letter.

So, bye for now, but I will keep in touch!

Barbara

Have a great time Barbara and James! Kentucky is on the way to Iowa, so wave when you pass by.

I'm so glad to hear you're well enough to travel, but don't spend your time on the computer. While you're thinking about what to report, you're missing out on the adventure!!!
That's what I learned many years ago, studying music. I became so analytical, I forgot to enjoy it.

Relax and enjoy......................................

Thanks everyone! Don't worry QS, I'm just going to be checking in when we stop for the night. I don't want to miss a thing.

We got off to a late start and didn't leave home until almost 10:00. We got lost in Winston-Salem (not hard to do), and we arrived at our hotel at about 12:30. Tomorrow morning we will go get the car taken care of (oil change, etc.) then head out on I-40.

Katie, if we were going farther west in Kentucky, or if we weren't in kind of a hurry to get there, we would definitely go see you! We will be taking another route (through Chicago, Ohio, etc.) to get home. One of these days we will make a trip up just to see you.

Well, we recorded Big Brother earlier tonight and I want to see it and then get to bed, so I'll hopefully be able to check in with you all tomorrow.

Barbara
