First, I want to thank our host. Vilmar has been most gracious trusting me to post content for you while he’s been gone, along with ocassional posts the rest of the year. It’s more work than I care to think about and I truly don’t know how he does it day in and day out. By the time he gets back, I’ll need a vacation of my own. Then again, maybe I won’t, I’m always on vacation.
FYI, things may be slim here for a bit. I was supposed to visit my son, DIL, and grandkids over Thanksgiving. They live near Seattle. Had a minor problem that kept me home, so haven’t seen them for quite some time. I don’t do winter if I can avoid it, but I’m going to brave the elements and go for a visit. It ought to be quite the adventure, since I will drive across southern Wyoming on I-80, then I-84 up through Idaho and Oregon. Weather is forecast to be pretty terrible over the Cascade Mountains, so we’ll go down the Columbia Gorge to Portland and up I-5 to the Seattle area. Should be an event free trip, right? Right in the middle of winter, but perhaps I’ll be lucky and it really will be event free.
As I type this a couple of days before Christmas, I-80 is closed between Laramie and Rock Springs, Wyoming, and will probably be closed border to border soon. You can see that I’m not that bright when it comes to where and when I travel. That closure can happen at any time, so who knows if I’ll make it there or back in a reasonable amount of time. I’m leaving the Denver area the morning after Christmas and plan on taking a few days to get there. Weather forecasts show Tuesday to be a reasonably clear, but very cold day. Hopefully I’ll arrive by Thursday evening. We hope to return by the end of the next week.
Since I’m planning a family visit, I’ll leave you all in Bob’s capable hands. He’s sure to find some great things for you all to discuss while I’m gone. If I’m lucky, upon return I’ll discover that a bunch of these dimwit traitors are going to get prosecuted. That would be a great way to start the New Year!
I wish you all a Blessed and Merry Christmas, filled with family and friends. May your New Year be prosperous and filled with good health and good cheer. I’ll check in upon my return.
