Back Home In Rochester

Arrived back in Rochester Sunday after a whirlwind run through Texas with my mother.  The trip was mainly for her to visit Dad's grave after four months...the cemetery is 660 miles away, so that accounts for the whirlwind!

We drove from Houston to Tyler, Ft. Worth, Amarillo, Austin, San Antonio, and back to Houston.  Well, actually 60 miles north of Houston.  We visited decades long family friends, family, our former minister and his family, and long dead ancestors in various country cemeteries around the Texas Panhandle.  It was a tiring drive, but fun.  We talked of the past, the present, and what we thought everyone should do in the future.  We even solved a few world problems.

Now, back in Rochester,  I rested yesterday and tried to catch up on my blog visits.  I'll be posting later this week.  Back to work today!

All the best to everyone!

  1. wow. sounds lik eyou did do quite the driving....but bet it was nice to visit...welcome home.

  2. Glad to hear you're home safe and sound. That is a LOT of driving. Are you still seeing telephone poles whizzing by in your peripheral vision?

  3. did you say 660 miles!!
    it must be love
    I know it was love
    bless you..
    so..what world problems did you solve
    good son

  4. Wow sounds like it was a drive of epic proportions but also sounds like you had some real good quality road trip conversation, without any outside interruptions.

  5. Being confined within an automobile for such a long road trip can be exhilarating, enlightening, and informative. I hope you learned something about your mother & family that you did not know.
