My Cowboy retired January 1st.
Among other things, I found out he’s got ADHD (maybe???) A hyperactive energizer bunny! Except he’s always worked so HARD I couldn’t tell!
So now, finally, he’s got some spare time and energy and we had PLANS!!!
We had TRIPS planned. A daughter who had a baby in March!! Grandma and Grandpa are ON THE WAY!
A research trip following the Oregon Trail.
A possible return trip to Durango. We went in the winter and my current book series is set there. (so it’s too late to help the book! Still I’m interested in the area! And I didn’t get to see Mesa Verdi when I was there!!! The Government was shut down!!!)
We had this one GRAND trip planned to see a friend in Missouri, then on to see My Cowboy’s brother in Pensicola, Florida, then maybe on that trip swing up to Washington DC where my daughter lives in time to see a newborn.
Shut down the country.
PionThe one trip we did manage this year was a very modest two day journey to some Nebraska museums I love and have only seen once before and My Cowboy, never. I posted one day about the Stuhr Museum and the Earthen Lodge of the Pawnee Indian tribe.
But there was so much more.
Pioneer Village in Minden, Nebraska, was on that trip. I seriously love that museum.
Pioneer Village in Minden, NE
And then on to the … well, we call it
The Kearney Arch…it’s really (I have to go look it up…The Great Platte River Road Archway Monument-imagine forgetting that!?)
Anyway, it’s super cool, all of it. And I’m glad my books managed to scoot at least that far.
And as a grand finale of my boots scooting!!! Or the lack thereof.
Here’s sweet baby Adrian
Grinning at me to mock my loneliness!
Boot Scootin’ Boogey one of these daysto see her!
