T–MINUS 38 HOURS AND COUNTING……

Chris, John and Aiden arrived Friday night about 7Pm…They gain an hour coming this way, and lose an hour going home…And sooooo, Mr. Aiden Kendall Wolff, age 2 years, woke his “Mimi” (that would be me) up Saturday morning at 5:50AM..Hey, it was almost 7AM in his little time warp!!…Here is what sunrise looks like here at 6AM..

I try to avoid this time of morning unless we’re “traveling”, or it’s from my bedroom…however I got this shot by stepping outside our back door, with Aiden watching his crazy Mimi from the warm inside.  We were the ONLY ones up…(NO, REALLY?)…Hey, wait a minute…I almost forgot… we were joined by Elmo, who was trying to sneak sips of my coffee while I was dozing off.

….Mimi made some cinnamon toast for Aiden and Elmo, and they ate it while watching Secret Agent Oso on our TV. (I KNOW you don’t have a clue who that is, but Aiden  is a big fan.)

We had a great family time this weekend……

WHAT WE HAVE HEAR IN THIS PICTURE ON THE RIGHT IS THE FAMOUS “BACK END OF A BEAR” WHICH WE  ALL HAVE BEEN AS UGLY AS…. HE IS A POLAR BEAR LAWN ORNAMENT WHICH LIGHTS UP..I GAVE HIM TO THE HEISERS FOR THEIR FRONT LAWN THIS CHRISTMAS.  HE REFUSED TO LEAVE OUR GARAGE WITHOUT HIS FAITHFUL COMPANION, THE PENQUIN…..SO NOW THEY WILL BOTH MAKE THEIR HOME STANDING IN THE SNOW ON COBBLER COURT IN SUGAR GROVE , IL.

(DENNIS HAD A TIME JAMMING THEM BOTH IN THE BACK END OF THE HEISER’S CAR..THEY WERE ARGUING OVER WHO WAS GOING RIDE LOOKING FORWARD..AND, AS YOU CAN SEE, THE PENGUIN LOST THAT BATTLE.)

…Yesterday, (Sunday) morning I made a breakfast scramble of sausage, bacon, hash browns, eggs and cheese ..PLUS pancakes. The Heiser family came back over for the feast, accompanied by their rescue dog, Bogie…and Kelly and Cindy came by to see The Wolff family off home to Indy..Kelly was heading into Soldier Field in Chicago with some fireman buddies to see the Chicago Bears vs. Michael Vick (the Eagles)….He was looking pretty festive..

Sooooo…after everyone got their fill , they all headed in different directions, and McGuyver and I began RE- stocking our Hiker.  So far the weather looks pretty good for the drive South.  We will go through Arkansas and down into Texas along the Eastern side which borders with Louisiana.  We will be “incommunicado” until we get to Jefferson TX on Wednesday evening, so blogging will not happen until Thursday this week. 

I want to welcome Visionquest  and Kyotesue to our blogosphere….a couple more brave souls who read this crazy stuff!! Make sure you climb into the truck tomorrow morning…ya gotta get up early, though!!

AND TUESDAY, WE WILL FINALLY BE MAKING LIKE RV’ERS …AND GETTING THE H--- OUTA HERE!!!!

Post note made Monday morning…..

 

HOW ABOUT THOSE CHICAGO BEARS!!!!!!!

  2. Good for you guys when you pass I-70 look west and that is where i hope to be heading in a couple of weeks, Until then have fun on you trip south again, it was 46 in Dardenne prairie, and 26 in Scranton at 7 this morning.
    I think Rigg's will be bugging to go to the doggie park for a swim even in Dec when I get back, he doesn't mind it if the waters cold. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.

  4. I know you just love little Aiden coming in and getting you out of bed at some ungodly hour in the morning! You can't fool me!!

    If I'm every in your area, I'm definitely going to come over and try to scrounge a breakfast off you - that 'Cave Scramble' sounded great!

    Safe travels and remind Dennis to take it easy loading stuff into the rig before you leave!!

    Finally, does this mean you now "love, lovie?" or do you still want 'Crazy Mike' back?

  5. Great pictures! Thanks for the welcome! I remember those early morning time-warps where everything seemed sooo much later than it actually was. (this morning waiting for coffee)

    You have a great looking family! I am really enjoying your blog :)

    Safe Travels!

  6. Ok you need to get a bigger truck or bus because you have invited so many to ride with us I don't have room for my cooler/suit case to fit.

  7. Caddo Lake State Park is pretty close to Jefferson. Are you going to stay there? It's only a short (Texas style) drive to Anahuac NWR. Offer still stands for a free full hook-up couple of nights! :)
