Remember Our Plumbing Issue?

Not sure if you all will remember, but about a week before we left for our trip, our outgoing sewer pipe collapsed and we had some big-time sewer problems. We were not able to fix anything before we left, so we returned to this continuing problem.
At this writing, our plumbing has been completely disconnected […]

Do Vegas In Style

I was just briefly in Vegas for the first time a few days ago as we drove through it. We were in a bit of a hurry so we did not spend any time sight seeing so I would like to go back at some point and see the town properly.

But […]

Slowly But Surely…

We are in Des Moines!
Travel is going slower than expected.  We had our second flat tire on the trailer on a mountain pass about 30 miles before getting to Denver last night.  Hubby and the boys changed it in the dusky twilight and we drove on the spare to Denver where we bought another tire.  […]

I Love Entrecard, but…

…yes, there is a BUT.
First, I’ll just say that through EC I have had the pleasure of finding some very cool blogs that I would not have found, I’m sure. I’ve also succeeded in driving a nice amount of traffic to my blogs. So…these are good things.
BUT…
In the past several weeks I have […]
