                  Nellie for another year of travels!
Just a practice run to Iowa and back.
That is our golden retriever who has decided he can climb trees

APRIL- Challenging month, we had to say goodbye to wonderful lady and Mother in law!
Everyone misses her dearly!

MAY-Traveling with some of my favorite people!

Free Airstream wash in Iowa! Ledges State park.

We went to Eureka Springs, Ak. with Ellie, Nora and not very
 far from being born Helen! Fun trip!

While in Arkansas with Nellie adventuring there was a bit 
                                                    of a storm with lots of hale and wind!
That is hail not snow!

I spent the better part of the summer finding out the fun of 
dealing with a not so cooporitive insurance company. Luckily Our son was home and with the help of a family friend got the roof patched up.
