Love the economy!

Anyone want to buy a motorhome???

Who would've thought it would be so difficult to get the "beast" a new home.  Such a big, beautiful and well taken care of motorhome should be a steal of a deal for someone out there.  I'm sure my dad is telling me to hang in there and the right person will come along.

Many of you have asked about Annie.  She is still doing well and seems happy with the girls.  She is having a culture shock living in a home with us and also that we are away from home a lot.  She had quite the life with mom & dad.  We are loving her as best we can and hope she is happy.  Mackenzie has really stepped up and takes her for walks, feeds her and even gives her medicine.  Grandma would be so proud.

I will try and post a picture of her as soon as I can.

put to rest

Many of you have been emailing wondering how things are going.  On Friday we were finally able to place my parents ashes into a beautiful rock in Tumwater.  They had chosen this many years ago and I had never been there until yesterday.  It was very peaceful and exactly where I would've picked had we had to make that decision for them.

Mackenzie was able to help them put the urn's into the cylinders and that made her very happy.  Zoey opted not to help with that job.  But as usual Mackenzie was always the one to help out grandma and papa when she was asked.  In a couple months they will have bronze markers put in place and that will be a nice final touch.  It is so nice to have one aspect of this "nightmare" resolved and know that they are together where they choose to be.

Now on to the difficulty of selling the "beast" of a motorhome.  It is so unfortunate that we cannot keep this beautiful RV; but it is just not practical in our lives.  Besides mom always said "just sell it."  Hopefully, this economy will not make this too challenging.

Till next time . . . thanks for all your nice messages.
