This morning, Saturday the 10th, I woke up kind of late to the sound of rain on the roof. Welcome to Illinois in the Spring😂Calling for showers and winds all day, so didn't waste anytime getting ready to leave the Homestead rest area just north of St Louis on I-55. Left at 9:45. Only one hour to Springfield and one hour to home. Had no real problems the entire two hours.Started raining harder as we closed in on Bloomington, Illinois. Nice to get a free wash to get all that southwestern dirt and dust off before getting home.Yuma got all excited when we turned onto our county road toward home. He remembers and I think he is excited to be home. He was jumping up and down from the dash and whining😍Pulled into home at 12:30 and our southwest journey for this season is over.
Today is my son Steve's birthday so rested up and talked with Dolly for the afternoon and then at 6:30 we went over to his house to meet the family for his birthday party.
It was great to see nearly the whole family the first night home and to be here to celebrate Steve's birthday. Perfect ending to a successful southwest trip. Hopefully, there will be another trip in my future. I appreciate those that read my blog and those that left comments.
Thanks for stopping by.
Keep in touch! Blessings to you and all your family.ReplyDelete

Glad you and Yuma made it home safely after many miles on the road. Everyone was happy to see you, as we celebrated Steve's birthday. I know you'll enjoy the rainy, windy, 40 degree days. 😁ReplyDelete

Yes, so glad to be home. Sometimes I wonder why I do this. Lots of fun memories and the people I meet make it worthwhile.Delete
I always enjoy your trips east and west since I no longer have an RV. I was also in basic training at 18 so we must be the same age. I went Air Force though.ReplyDelete
