Update on the trip

Well, the bad news is, the car died! The good news is that it died as my Cuter and Shorter Half was returning from buying another car. She's picking it up tomorrow, and Friday morning, as soon as the vet opens (the dog's hotel whilst we're gone. LOL!), we're on the road!

Well, I said the Itinerarium at 07.30, and we dropped the dog at the vet's and were Colorado bound by 09.30. We've made it to Sterling, Colorado. It's about three more hours to Red Feather Lakes, via Fort Collins. We're staying the night in a cheap, mom'n'pop motel. It's clean and neat, but the A/C doesn't work. Of course, it's a cool 86 F here, so it's cooler than my room at home! LOL

I envy you, Jovan.  I know a lady who with her husband go on the road in continental Europe with their motorhome.  They leave their dog (whether in kennels or with a friend/relation I'm unsure) because in souther Europe (Spain anyway) there are some toxic caterpillars that can harm, or even kill, pets.  https://www.thelocal.es/.../beware-toxic...ross-spain
They have managed to visit some interesting places.  Actually an Aunt and Uncle of mine (now deceased) used to do something similar.  On one occasion they visited some at least of the Marian shrines in Europe, including some of the lesser known ones though my memory has grown dim which ones now.

In my whole life I've visited Walsingham (which of course is in the UK) and Lourdes.    I've never been to La Salette which is in eastern France.

Well, the Cuter & Shorter Half figured out how to get the A/C to work so it was a comfortable night sleeping. We're now in Red Feather Lakes. It doesn't look like I will have any connectivity at the cabin, but the public library, about a mile from it, in which I'm sitting and typing this, has 24/7 wi-fi, so if I have to I can come here and sit on the bench outside the door.

The chilluns and the grand chilluns will be here at the library in a few minutes to meet us. So, if I don't get to the library before we head home, I'll be posting again tomorrow week. Keep us all in your prayers, please.

Despite my regular sleeping schedule being from about 03.30 to 11.30, I'm trying to 'readjust' so I can spend more time with the family. I got up at 08.30 this morning.

Our oldest daughter and two of her children (minus our oldest grandson) arrived at about 23.30 last night. I had forgotten that today was Father's Day, so when I came out of the bedroom, I was greeted with 'Happy Father's Day' and a bit of news.

I was immediately informed that I'm am going to be a great grandfather! I have been joking for the last year or two that it was going to happen, and that I didn't feel old enough to be a great grandfather.

I am reminded of 23 years ago this October when we had a family conversation about grandchildren. I told Jenny not to be in a hurry, because I wasn't ready yet. She assured me that it would be several years, so I needn't worry. A few days later, she called me to inform me that I was going to be a grandfather in May!

At any rate, we're having a great time. Jenny and Amber are headed back to California in the morning, but our grandson is spending the week, and flying back to California at the end of our stay.
