I put up the clings on the cargo door window...I think they're pretty, tho they don't afford much in the way of privacy I liked the idea of dressing that window a bit.

I don't know if it will seem too busy inside, but I'll leave them for awhile and we'll see how they set with me.

These are two sets of corners, which I tried to place strategically and artfully so as to look like vines.

Inexpensive, from this place...

SteakNShake has happy hour 2-5pm every day...half priced milkshakes, you know.

Real ice cream, milkshakes made the old fashioned way...a small road treat for Alice and I as we headed to meet her parents.

We ran into a hellacious storm coming into Galesburg....60+mph winds, and I had to pull over to sit it out for fear of being blown off the road.

When we got to Galesburg, Alice's parents were inspecting and photographing their car, which had been hit by a large sheet of flying something that broke and imbedded itself in their car, causing a fair amount of damage. Good thing they had gone inside the Mall and were not in the car when it happened.

The torrential rain did nicely clean the insect and bird debris off my Interstate, however.

The RainX coating that Blue Beacon puts on really makes a difference in getting those bug bits off the windshield and paint.

We especially have lots of fat, juicy, tobacco spitting grasshoppers out here in corn country this time of year.

I am really loving that truck wash, and it will be a regular treat for my little buggy.

$28, for a good wash, including a RainX coating and cleaning/treating the tires and rims. What's not to love.

Meet up with Mimi in 9 days, have some odds and ends to do to get ready for that, after which I will be gone for 3 months....a solo trip, but interspersed with visiting friends and meeting up with groups.

Better.


Maggie

I'm starting to load the trailer for a Friday departure. First stop is a visit with my sister-in-law in southern Kansas.

I do look forward to meeting you.

Maggie and Mimi, enjoy your visit. It is hard to believe....we're almost into the middle of July! My the time has flown by. Next thing we know, we'll all be meeting up in Jackson Hole!

Maggie, glad you made it through that terrible storm. Unscathed! Sounds like it was pretty rough.

Safe travels. Evelyn.

Thanks, and yes, I am looking forward to it all.

My time between now and the 20th has just taken on some new tasks, but as I was due to be gone anyway there is really nothing scheduled between now and then but a haircut.

There are definite advantages to having a computer genius for a son.

He was looking at my laptop the other day, a 7 year old MacBook Pro, which has a great deal stored on it, but is slow as molasses in January.

He said I should upgrade the hard drive, and add more storage, which wouldn't be prohibitively expensive and he could order and install what I needed.

Then, he lets me know he has a solid state (I think) hard drive, and 8 GB of data in a newer but since replaced laptop, that he will let me have.

He's going to have it all up and running before I leave next week.

He's a good man....and I like, love and appreciate good men.

May we partner with them, and may we raise them.


Maggie

Nice that your son keeps you well set up with efficient running electronics. You must be very proud of his skill with computers in addition to all of his other attributes. Now you will be well connected.

I guess I have bragged on him a bit.

I am proud of him, and he is a good man and a wonderful father.

It's all true....sorry if I go on too much.

Nothing to be sorry about at all. I enjoy hearing it. Actually, maybe a bit envious that I don't have one to assist me with mine. LOL! Truly, you are right to be so proud! I have taught myself on computers and other electronics....and am lacking in expertise in the field. It is necessary to move forward with the times, and this includes ever changing technology. There is so much to learn...case in point...not only our iPhones, iPads, nook, etc...but, also this terrific machine, the AI, that leaves SO MUCH to be learned. .??LOL.?

Yes, having my son be very skilled with electronics has been very helpful over the years.

Ran some errands and got my hair cut this morning....errrm, trimmed is a better word, but it gave me an opportunity to visit with the hair cutter, a young woman who has been in my life at least 20 years, who is a truly good person, and who I [I]trust.[/I

Lots and lots of good people out there in the world, a goodly number in my circle of family and friends...and I appreciate them immensely.

Would that all were that way, and you know who you are.

It's a great quote...I don't know who said it, but I found it one day and saved it for when I felt like posting it.

Like today.

I like this one, too.
