The adventures of a man, a boy, and a rock...

Today was a long day of driving, and I made the rather humbling realization that on this trip I have the equivalent usefulness of a rock. I can't drive the rig. I really stink at navigation... I mean REALLY stink. I get carsick if I look anywhere other than straight ahead for more than a few seconds. And I fall asleep nearly the instant the wheels start moving. For all intents and purposes, John is making a very long cross country trek with a small boy and a rock. Unfortunately it's also a rock that needs to eat and have potty breaks. But the man is so hopelessly in love with me that he's not even upset about it. He just looks over at me from time to time, smiles, and says "isn't this fun?" Yes, it really is fun, but somehow I think I'm getting the nicer end of the bargain!

Sorry, no photos tonight. I'm having technical difficulties in that department. See, I told you... a rock!

Rock on?! if you be a rock - then a lovely rock it is. After the long separations and turmoil - having his family snug in the cab of the truck has to be pure joy for John. We don't have to tell him he is traveling with a boy and a rock - and even if you did - I doubt he'd believe it!

You are such a great story teller. I haven't commented in awhile and was so excited because I have never been first to leave you a comment. I'm glad you are having a safe trip making memories. Love- Allison
