Just me and my mom . . .

y Mom and I went to see her brother Ronald
in Washington the 13th - 19th of July.
oi vey (?), what a long drive! We stopped in
Idaho and stayed the 1st night with my old
roomie, Peggy, then arrived at uncle Rons
Tues. evening.
While there, we went to see Moms Aunt Sue
and her son Lewie Maudsley.

This lovely 2 hr. drive did me in and by screeching to an abrupt stop, I was able to take a much closer look at the beautiful flora and fauna and even left the critters a surprise! I am now my uncles favorite niece
because I DIDN'T decorate his car.
We had a great visit and I got to see my cousins that I haven't seen since they were probably 10 and 6. The country is absolutely beautiful - if you don't mind being totally lost all the time. Which I was, being directionally dysfunctional, but with the help of hand drawn maps and lots of phone calls ( thank heavens for cell phones) we were able to return home with only a few minor snafus!
When Adam was little, he heard my uncle do his duck talk, so with any luck, the video will work and you will see the 'original' but uncooperative talking duck.
hummm, guess not! maybe tomorrow.
