Travels and fun

Hello again, it has been a little while since my last post. Life has been busy with travel and hosting family. I hope you are doing well and life is treating you well.

On our way to Las Vegas, we stopped at the Calico Ghost Town out in the beautiful desert. We did not go into any of the mines or attractions, it was interesting just the same. I was amazed at the number of people with european accents.

After Calico, we drove across that beautiful desert to the oasis known as Las Vegas, which I will share more about in the next post.

I hope you have been doing well and life is giving you something to smile about.

Reminds me of trips to Silver City, Idaho, growing up....27 miles on dirt, one-lane road. Love those sort of places....and they are so few and far between any more.

the redneck dictionary?

Lewis, I love Ghost towns too. They do seem to be getting fewer and fewer. Ever been to Bodie, California? its extra cool.

Laurie, you are too cute. Big hugs back at you.
