Next and Coming

I'm about to leave town for a trip to visit my grandbaby, and of course her parents. My daughter is planning fun things for us, I can't wait.

I decided not to fly after all the recent hullabaloo, you know what I mean, with all the security tightened and possible delays and aggravations.

So I have rented a car, and I'll be driving. It's just me going this time.

One advantage of driving is that I can drop by North Texas and visit my family there, too.

It's a long time in the car, but I'll get some books on CD or something to pass the time quickly.

I usually sit in the passenger side and knit, but not this time. I'm driving, so I guess I'll have to wait to knit until I arrive.

I haven't started packing yet, I'm way behind on my usual planning. But somehow it will all come together.

And if not, I'm sure they have stores in Louisiana, where I can pick up anything I need.

At least I won't have to worry about containers with more than four ounces of liquid, or about having my toothpaste confiscated.

Such things that go on, it's a wonder we travel at all any more. But that grandbaby is a big draw, I think I'd walk it if I had to!

So you may not hear from me as much as usual. It's hard to type with a tiny girl sitting on your lap, and I plan to be in that position as much as possible!

Hi Lynn,

If you are coming through my part of North Texas (Denton), let me know and you can stop for a meal at the local Cracker Barrel (right on the highway) and I'll pick up the tab! I'd love to meet you!

I'm going to be close, but not quite that far west, more's the pity! I'm going to be north of Dallas, close to the Oklahoma border.

One of these days I'm going to get into the VW Campmobile and drive around the country, meeting all you good folks. But not when it's snowing like it is right now, maybe in the summertime, LOL.

Too bad Emanda, I'd so love to meet you too - want to drive a few hours north for no particular reason?

You may spend more time chasing her than having her sit with you, but she does love to read books with a grownup, so there is always the glimmer of hope :D

::is so excited::

Hi Lynn, Enjoy you grandbaby. Such a special time. I just spent a whole week with my 2 grandsons and would not trade that time for anything in the world. We are so blessed to have them.
