On the way to Aunt Louise's

I am sorry to be slow in posting but I have been out of wifi range for some days.  Oh how I hate driving through West Texas!

Yes, I have chosen to drive to Ft Worth--the longer way.  First of all, Aunt Louise is now in Hospice but is showing very positive signs of rallying.  Of course, we all know that's what Aunt Louise does best--rallying when the doctors have thrown up their hands and said, "there is no way she can recover from this."  Her attitude is, "I can recover if I want to and no little, wet-behind-his-ears doctor is going to stop me!"

She is a 97 year old phenomena who informed me two days ago, "When you get here we are going to take a trip to Tennessee."
I asked, "Why do you want to go to Tennessee?"
She answered me as though I should have known the answer--"Because I've never been there!"
I think we'll wait a little while before planning that trip.

Now I am stuck in a rest stop on I-10 about 300 miles west of San Antonio.  The weather is cold and overcast, and there is a dense fog that is keeping me from getting out on the freeway.  Daisy has been outside for her morning walk but she was back inside and into her bed in mere minutes.  Inside the RV is comfortably warm but there is a very cold front that will be here by Sunday. That front is keeping me from turning north toward Ft Worth so I will wait.  I fear the RV cannot withstand temps in the teens for many days in a row.

More later, if the wifi signal comes through the fog.


  1. I'm glad to hear that Aunt Louise is doing better. She sound like a spunky one! :-)

  2. I am sorry to hear of Louise's condition, but you're right about her beating the odds. Who knows, maybe she will get to Tennessee!

  3. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you. So very sorry about your Aunt Louise. May you get through the fogs and storms without further worry.
