Paducah, Kentucky


We traveled on Thanksgiving day, thinking there wouldn’t be very much traffic.  There actually was a lot of trucks on the road, but the rain is what slowed us the most.  It rained on us every step of the way.  We came to Paducah to bring my little sister home.  She had been in Indy for the last few weeks to help with our brother.  Thanks again Dotty; I couldn’t have made it through this without you.


My nephew, Don, my brother’s son, has done a very nice thing for us.  He bought us a complete set of tires for our truck.  I did not want or expect anything for taking care of his Dad, but he insisted on doing this for us.  We do appreciate it, and needed to put on a new set very soon.  I am adding a picture of Don and his wife, Deana, and a picture of their 2 kids, Cassidy and Conan, all dressed up for trick or treating.

We will be hanging out here till the tires arrive, then we will have them put on.  Shortly afterwards we will be headed for Texas.  We hope to stay in the same RV Park that we stayed in in 08.  It is 30 miles out in the country and full of very nice people.  The owner, Doug and all of his workers, are just as nice as they can be. 

Thanks to everyone who left a comment on my Dear Brother’s passing.  It means a lot to me and my whole family.

I see I have 4 new followers.  Susan, I couldn’t find a blog for you, but if you have one let me know and I will post it.  Next is Terria. Her site is a little different than most, but check it out.  Then there is Dear Miss Mermaid; check her out.  And last, but not least is Larry and Teddy.  I use to read their site, but lost the address for it.  Now I will be able to get caught up.  Thanks to all for following my blog.  I will try not to disappoint.

Going to get off here and get something done.  You all stay safe and I will talk to you again in a few days.  :)

What a beautiful gesture to get you the tires. They are a very nice looking family, and the kids are so cute in their Halloween costumes.

Welcome back to blogging.

Safe travels, Pidge. Your new tires will help with that!

That was a very thoughtful gesture on behalf of your nephew in buying you a new set of tires. He obviously appreciates everything you did for his Dad.

Enjoy your stay in Paducah, it won't be long now before your on the road to Texas!

As family time wraps up, I am sure you will get on your way to Texas on those new tires. I really liked the Halloween shot of the kids. But feel sorry for them to have lost their grandpa. But life moves on and waits for none of us. So I'm sure they will be fine in the future. Best wishes in your travels.

That was great of your nephew and of course he must feel the same for all you did for his Dad! I am so glad to see you blogging again!

Nice to see you back on blog! It is cold here in Texas, but it depends where you are! Around the coast not so bad, but the wind does blow a lot. If you get close to Central Texas give me a shout out, maybe we can GTG
