It's Monday Morning and I'm Back!!

Gentle Readers and Dear Sweet friends!!! How I missed you all!!  I so enjoy this daily Blogging and getting little bits of myself into print - that I really didn't think I would have such bad withdrawals.  Like some sort of cyber crack - I thought about different posts I could have written while away.  Daily little journals of things happening I wanted to share, but without a computer - no posting   :(

Heading East on SR 40 outside of Ocala - 
 It's crooked because I was holding the camera above my head while driving my mom's convertible - 

I did get in a couple of side trips - visited only a single "Stitichery" Store - and ate way too many bad things that I can't get here in San Francisco.  Visited lots with my Mom - fixed a couple of problems she was having - and I will now be much more involved with her life.  With here reaching the mile stone of 85 and still getting around pretty good she is just amazing - BUT - stubborn as a "Georgia Mule" as my grandfather would have so eloquently put it!!

Today's post will have to be super short - I have a ton of snaps to go through - and piles of crapity work to get through today!!  

Let's just say - it was sweltering the entire time - I was damp from dawn to dusk and then some, but it was bright and sunny every single day - we have one rainy day and quite a bit of smoke from all the fires - but over all - lovely sunny weather..... if that's what you like.

I am playing catch up with my emails also - please take no offence if I haven't written back, I will get them all answered int he next few days!!
Thanks again for all your kind words and thoughts!!  Check back over the next few days to read and see some snaps from my trip.

Take care,
edgar
