Travels with the Grammie

To continue the adventure to get to Peanut's house the jolly carload had to go from South Dakota to Nebraska (where Wally's GranNE lives) into Kansas (howdy to Stanley, Stella and Deetzy) on to Oklahoma (luckily no one broke out in song), through Texas ( waved to Mack ,The Brat Pack , Gus, Louie, Callie and Cubby). After driving for over 25 hours they were able to find their way onto the Army base. I was told that they had 3 very nice days with Peanut, Flash, Shelby and the boy. As is life all good thinks must come to an end as they had to return home so that Grammie could reenter the work force. Grammie says. "Moco, there is no more wonderful sight then when you see the Columbia. and Mt. Hood. You really know you are home at that time." I think the next time she might take us and leave Pappy at the house.

She almost came through Colorado! They could have made it an even longer trip and made a little bit of loop and came through where I live! That would have made for some extra time inthe car isntead of spending it with Flash and his family though. Maybe next time! lol

We loved your photos and the narrative!!

But the real reason for this comment is to ask you if you remember the squeaky light bulbs you sent the Boyz for the Gift Exchange? Well one has died from an excess of squeaking -- but the other one is still alive and well and JH has been squeaking it enthusiastically for the last fifteen minutes!!! :)

CAN YOU HEAR HIM????????

Huskee Boy said...

Oh wow... looks like Grammie had a great time!! Can't imagine she spent 25 hours driving!! Any chance Grammie can drive to Singapore for her next vacation?

What a trip! That's a long drive. I hope you packed plenty of snacks. You could have stopped into my GranNE's house. She always has snacks in the fridge. And if you look pathetic enough she will give you one and tell you you're a good boy.

That's a long roadtrip, but looks like you had a good time! Nothing like home sweet home though. Mount Hood looks so beautiful.

Hugs, Kodak

I bet you were happy to see Grammie back home. That's a long drive. I know because we drive almost that whole drive and I did NOT want to get in the car.

Isn't great when you see Mt. Hood?! Mom is standing over my shoulder, by the way...she wants to make it clear that I got PLENTY of turkey and cheese while she was making sandwiches for their hike. She says I ex-ex-exagerate sometimes (whew, that's a hard word!!).

Jake of Florida said...

Grammie,

Shortly after we wrote to you last time, after 20 minutes of continued ear-piercing squeaking, JH succeeded in killing the squeaky light bulb. Fortunately, Mom was there to find the socket thingy parts he had chewed off. So, we appreciate your kind offer of another one, but we think JH's career as an electrician is done for the moment!! He definitely enjoyed it while it lasted and he still has a few of the other fun toys Foley sent -- so he is happy (and we is blissfully quiet!!)

(Mom made me write this.)
