Home....{actually...7 Days... on the Road...but...I made it Home...Tonight!}


{I was humming this Tune...after we Crossed the Mighty Miss! I put the Hammer DOWN!{God...I Love a Diesel Engine!}
{ Polly was THRILLED to see Me!}
{I just got home.... 11, and beat...5 states... and soooo many miles....I have much to share...last night... was Un- Believable....this last week...was a real 'ride'.... much...much to share... but... I must...rest....
God Bless... and Thanks...for Everything...}




Amazing.... I Loved, being back....This show, is truly... The Grand Daddy! We'll All Be Back....Next Year! Come Join Us!!!!
Eat Me...
I had this made, at the Opryland...for the show... The darling, jewelry box, was a gift from Marc Brandenburg.... I LOVE IT!!!!!Perfect for the 'Alice' 'grow' cake....
We were proud...to be a part...of such a Wonderful Show....Thanks to Susan Kramer... {promoter}...She sat beside me, at the end of the show...and asked... if I will be back, next year... with contract in hand... my reply...without hesitation.... "You Betcha!!!!"...
She is an Amazing, caring Woman...so, very much, like her wonderful Mother....Libby.... I see Libby, every time, I look at Susan.... She has poured her Soul, into Heart....and I'll walk beside her...all the way....
These Roses were Amazing...they opened, to at least 5 inches across... they were 'dump roses'... 3.50, for the bunch.... They were Proud...to smile, at Heart.... I am saving them....Beautiful...dried....or...simply...petals....lovely....

Peg...and Sweet Amy...taring down... {I was up on that ladder, constructing.... It's right up there...Paul Bunyan, is a Tall Boy!} These Gals, hustled in Double Time, at tare down...amazing!

See  ya...Tomorrow!
Love....to Ya!

It was a Good Booth.... and...Fun....Peg was amazing...and Amy, at tare down...I'm so glad you and Allyson got to see the sights...someday...me, too....
This trip was a 'Journey'...to say the least...but... honestly...THEY ALL ARE!!!!!

so glad to hear you made it back to IA.....I didn't want to have to send a search party out to IN.
Thanks for everything - it was an amazing trip. Wonderful to meet Allyson and Vikki!!
Rest up my dear - you certain deserve some down time.

As long as the 'Search Party', had beverages, that could hold a Flame....we're Good!
Oh My... Everyone Loved You....{except the neighbors, in the room, next door...we should have invited them over!} You are a Fire Cracker! I'll never forget...{ever}dancin' on the the amazing Marble, barefooted...at 2 in the morning...at the Opryland Lobby...{and...a few other things...'What Happens in Nashville...Stays, in Nashville!!!!}
As rough, as the 'Ride' can be, at times....it seems... it can be equally 'AMAZING!!!!'... oh my....
Next year.... I'm counting the days...
Love to Ya, Amy...and Thank You...Sweet Angel...for Everything!
