AND THE WINNER IS.......

........someone I've known for a long time. In fact, I've known her for over thirty years!  She lives in Minnesota.  Let me tell you something about this person that will give her a hint that she won.  Back in the day, when we lived in North Dakota, this person and my daughter went out daughter's bedroom window onto the roof overhang  in back, down to the shed roof, and down to the patio. In the middle of the night.  And they thought I didn't know!   Let's see.  She has three daughters.  She lives close to the park where we will be campground hosting this summer so I can deliver her purse then.  And she blogs once or twice a year at this spot.  In fact, she is due to post any day now!  Congratulations Mom in MN!  I'll see what I can come up with!  And I expect you to come visit when we're hosting at the park.

Our quick road trip went fine.  We delivered the trailer to a beautiful spot in the Northern Wisconsin woods,  several miles from civilization.  Looks like a great spot to have a vacation home.  Then we got right back into the truck and headed south again.  We went as far as our son's home and stopped to spend the night with him and his wife and two boys.  We hardly saw Joe as he is on the golf team at his school, and they were playing at Hazeltine golf course.  We talked a bit when he got home late, and he was gone when we got up this morning.  But we did get to visit with Justin, and he had dinner with us before heading to do his homework.  They are two busy talented boys.

Just after we got on the road yesterday morning I had a call from daughter Kari telling us about this accident.  Fortunately, they are all okay, although stiff and sore.  The van didn't make out as well.  It is totaled.   The Lord was watching over them for sure.  Thank you Jesus.

The weatherman said a naughty word on the news tonight.  I hope they fire him!  He said the S word.  Yup, he said snow.  Don't want to hear it Mr. Weatherman!  Not in May!  I'll let you know in the morning if we have beautiful green grass or that nasty white stuff.

We lucked out this morning and our green grass is still showing, although we've got a freeze warning for tonight. I can tolerate that, but I don't think I could tolerate snow anymore. Ick.

Lena, we still have green grass too! Thank goodness! But we are also under a freeze warning for tonight. Guess there won't be many Mother's Day picnics tomorrow!

Have a good weekend.

WOO HOO!!! Thank you, Mom!! (And Ernie for drawing my name!) Can't wait to see you this summer! Thanks for making me laugh out loud at all your hints about who the winner is. :-) I had forgotten about that ALLEGED "sneaking out" incident. Okay, I hadn't. But I was hoping you had! :-) (You know it was all Kari's idea, right? hee hee). I remember us coming back in and seeing you standing on the stairs.

You're right -- it is about time for a blog update for me. It's goign to have to be a very long one, or several small ones, because there's a lot to catch up on.

Happy Mother's Day!!!!!

Oh marge, I am so far behind...I am sorry. but I enjoyed reading the comments as much as your blog. How funny about the sneaking out. I honestly bet no one will forget about that. Especially the look on your face when they came in and you were standing there. I can almost see that one in my own head!!!! Oh it put a smile on my face!
