On Our Way

Well Nelson and I left the House to take him off to college on Sunday August 3 after church that evening. We drove all night and all day Monday and we were beat when we pulled into Albuquerque.

In fact we had to stop along the road and take naps several times as both of us were too tired to drive. Nelson has only driven for two weeks so I cannot sleep when he is driving anyway.

This has been my first chance to post on ActiveRain sense we left.


Nelson on Route 66

Nelson standing on Old Route 66 – this is how I came to California as a kid.  He does not like this picture because he is not smiling.  Is that my fault?

New Mexico


I love driving through the Arizona and New Mexico Desert. Lots of beautiful sites.


More to come about our exciting adventures.

He does look quite not happy! LOL! I guess he was still sleepy!

Looking For Homes With A Smile

Gene, smiles or not, enjoy time with your son.  It is one of the most awesome gifts God has given to men.  No bond is quite like it--not to take anything away from the bond one builds with a spouse or a daughter; but a man shaping the manhood of a son is special.  When you look up and realize" my little boy has become a man, and I had a hand in it!" --you know, "I have a partnership with God!"

Go with God.  Enjoy your trip, and travel safe.
