The Day...that...lasted a week... : ) Oh My... Life...'is' a Highway... : )

As Jethro...and I...were Flyin' down the Interstate...this eve...
I reflected...on the Day...
It seemed...a Week Long...
How...in the World...did we Cram...Soooo Very Much... into a few hours?
It Was An Amazing....Day!!!
Holy Smokes...
Cindy and I... were Drowning... in Folks...
The Estate Sale...was PACKED!!!
Thank God....for Tom... and Bud...
oh my...
I felt like I was on the Floor...at The Stock Exchange!!!
It...was Craaaazy!
We All.....ROCKED!!!!
Our Pegadoo...and Mike...popped in..
: )
She had a 100% GREAT....Report...from MAYO!!!
: )
{Thank...You...for the Continued...Prayers...: ) }
She wanted to stop by...and meet...Jackie...
{It was her... Estate...we were settling....}
Yes...
She and Jackie.... would have been...Great Friends...
they were Soooo Much...alike...
: )
Peg...
wept...
as did...Cindy....
I can't tell...you...how...Soulful...
This 'Journey'... Was....
I think...we All...know... what a Loss...losing her...was to us...Earthly...Folk...
: )
Even...tho... we had never met...her...
Face...to Face...
somehow... we... knew...her... well...
: )
Had a Lovely...visit...with Jackie's Daughter... Melissa...
at the end of the Sale...
She... is...I Think...
Her Mother's... Daughter...
: )
After...I left...the Sale...
 I Flew...Home...Threw...clothes...in a bag....
Told John...I was sorry...for leaving him..in a Mess!
{I haven't been...'Home'... for a week!}
But...
I was Heading to Chicago!!!
{Nothing... was Stopping Me!}
{ John...Loves...to see me...go...
He Has... Everything....to Himself...: )
for...a bit...
I...Think...
tho...
he...likes to see me... come home... too...: )
just... a little bit...: )}
Botanic Garden Show...!!!!
Last Day...
Sunday...
a Gift...
to me...
{I was in such a hurry...I realized... halfway to Chicago......
I forgot my toothbrush!
I had to stop... and get one...
 then...I thought...I had lost...my cash...
I was digging...frantically...in my purse... while driving...down Interstate 80...
Guess... that's when I missed my turn...
and...was nearly to Indiana.... before... I figured out...
I was....
WAAAAAY
Off Track!
HOLY SMOKES!!!
oh...my...
Then...
when I finally...got on the right...road...
'The Tolls'...
The...'Dreaded'...
'Tolls'...
I Missed...one...all together...
"Ooooops!"
Caught... one...
ahhh....
almost...
: )
{Jethro...and I flew... through the Median...of the 'Missed'... Toll area... 
and back... on to the Interstate...
That...: )
was a 'Journey'...
{Good Thing... I'm a Double Clutchin' Mama!
Whew!!!
I was Grabbin' Gears...!
Yikes!}
: )
{A Good Thing... He's a 'Sure Footed'...Steed!!!}
At the Third... 'toll'...
{Where there was...a 'Human'....}
I told the Sweet Girl... what had happened at the last two...
"Almost...Stops..."...
: )
She gave me a flier... on how to 'Fix'...'It'...
: )
 oh my...
Little...Sleep...
Mind...Drained...
Eyes... capped...with...
FRIED...Contact Lenses...
and...
A Car... with...
Amazing... Endurance...
{and...Angels...Frantically...Flappin'....Wings...}

Life...is Good..: )
Ahhhhh...

My Old...Boots... Love...The King Sized Bed...
at The Radisson...
: )
Yes... after carrying...me... so many...
Miles...
They...deserve... a 'Break'... tonight...

{They were Dumpin' That Clutch... with Everything They Had....
at Those...
Awful...
'Tolls'!!!!....
{Bless their....Little Worn Out....Souls!!!

I can't recall ever having more fun! The people who attended were so nice, and the lady running it was out of this world, but getting to know Jackie was a priceless gift that I shall forever treasure! Thanks for letting Tom and I be part of this experience!
