Dawg, glad you had such a nice visit with family. I would imagine IL, OH and NE are plenty scenic, but I've never been to those states. I couldn't drive hours and hours at a time anymore these days, either. I'm hoping to get up to my aunt and uncle's home up in Sacramento (NoCal) for a visit soon, but that's an 8 hour drive and my daughter will have to drive me. She doesn't know that yet, though.
With two drivers, you can spell her.

What are you doing?

Thanks Cheryl. The cousin's friend is from northern California, Rut something.

The most gorgeous sunset we ever saw was through the back window on our way to IL from IA.

IL, OH, and NE are pretty flat and rural. I love the drive through MN and MI though!

ND also has the Northern Lights, and probably the best sunsets ever, other than Iowa and IL!

Half the time I'm not even locking the house or car, let alone the grill. Both bikes are just hanging out in the back yard! I put my name on the garden tools so the Parents and I don't get them too badly mixed up.

Hoping for a shovel party in my yard tomorrow, have a 5x8 foot patch of yard I want dug up...will be my flower bed for wild flowers next spring.

No way, best sunsets are in Wyoming! Will have to rev the camera back up.

Ontario has fabulous sunsets too, along with great Northern Lights!

Yes, you do need to rev up the camera!

When I lived in the country, we never locked the house. I'm not sure if we could. We always left the car unlocked and the keys in the ignition, except during hunting season. That choice was reinforced when we happened to meet someone. We had actually seen his house on fire from the highway. He was cursing that he hadn't left the keys in his ignition. His house caught fire while he was in bed. He ran out of the house in his jammies and forgot to grab the car keys. He watched his car burn.
