I don't know about Dorothy and Toto but I never want to see Kansas again. We don't normally drive through there but thought we would like to see some different parts of the country. KANSAS HAS COWS. Millions and millions of cows. We got caught in a storm that made me stop breathing. I was sure I was going to see the Wizard of Oz. No more Kansas for me Toto. The GPS was trying to get the best of us by now and John was really starting to dislike her.
One of my nephews is a computer geek and teaches all things computers. He talked John into buying me an IPAD Touch so he wouldn't have to listen to Myrtle anymore. I was so excited. Now I can get my email any where and watch you tube and read books.
From Wisconsin we drove to Chicago to go my godson's/nephew's wedding. It was beautiful. The bride was gorgeous.
The fun part of the wedding was when the bride and her bridesmaids showed up at the church in a Chicago Trolley.
I brought home some of the flowers from the wedding. I'm going to dry them and put them in polymer clay and make beads for all the girls in the family. I put the flowers in a Ziplock bag and sucked the air out of the bag with a straw. It has been a week now and this is what they look like.
THE RIDE HOME
We left Chicago Monday morning and drove to Joplin, MO. Tuesday we stopped for lunch in Clinton, OK and when we came out the battery was dead. Lost 3 hours in Clinton getting a new battery so we only made it to Amarillo. The next morning we were packing the car and there was a 7 inch crack in the passenger side window. We drove 12 hours to get home because we were afraid something else might go wrong. At least John and the GPS quit fighting and she quit saying "RECALCULATING".
Next week is our 4 day clay guild retreat in Prescott, AZ. 4 days of nothing but clay and fun. I can't wait. I washed clothes and ironed for 2 days now I get to pack my clay stuff. I always overpack.
Hope to have some good pictures for the blog when I get back.
HOME SWEET HOME
