We were having our usual quiet Sunday when I got a call from our niece, Denise, in Alabama. “Hey, she said “I’m thinking about a road trip. You’all going to be home on Tuesday and Wednesday?”
Come to find out, she got up on Sunday morning and just took a notion to take off on an over 2,000 mile roadtrip on her motorcycle—by herself. She starts a new job on Monday and she decided it was now or next year. I am so glad she decided now.
She arrived yesterday afternoon but not before a small rain storm caught her on I70. She was just a little damp when she arrived but didn’t want to stop and put on her awesome, made for motorcycles rain gear. (Amazingly, she hasn’t needed it since she started)
So, after a dinner with Dan’s brother, Paul & Janice, she spent the night and took off mid morning for Abilene to visit more relatives.
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Her free spirit always has been and still is a joy.
