My 22-day road trip came to an end when I arrived back home on Wednesday.  I love to go but it's always good to be home. I want to thank all my ActiveRain peeps for the amazing friendship we share. On this trip I was able to spend time with Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! , Rocky Dickerson, Ray and Debe Maxwell, CRS , Leanne Smith , Jan Green - Scottsdale, AZ, and Gary and Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, Phoenix Broker I also got to spend time with other family and friends in Kuna (Idaho), Salt Lake City, and Henderson (Nevada).

Good morning, Carol... first, thanks so much for including my post on your list today! I'd already read most of your selections, but was reminded I had been meaning to read Robert Siciliano's post and hadn't gotten around to it... so that's where I'm heading next! Happy Saturday!

I have been in a whirlwind with work. I have a lot of AR catching up to do. 

It was fun talking with you and Miss Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, Phoenix Broker, and teasing you about the trips to the liquor stores.  Carol Williams

Hi Carol well you're up early today!  Lots of great choices and I think I've read most of them.  Look forward to catching up on the others! It was great spending time with you here in Phoenix!  That was a lot of fun packed into a short period of time.  The trip to Costco is priceless!  LOL

Hi, Carol.

I am glad you're home safely. 

It was difficult during the last few weeks to find non-June Challenge posts for your SCS series. Although I enjoyed the Challenge month, I found very little time to write about anything else. 

Thank you for finding my post and including it on your list this week. Welcome home!
