Two weeks. Some of it flew by and some did not. We had a near miss of a traffic accident---it was either not our time to die or not the drivers of the freight train of 18 wheelers that would have crushed us under their wheels. It was my husband's fault. As we re-entered traffic--from the grassy center of the highway---the truckers laid on the horns, yelled and gave us all manner of creative hand signals. We must have scared them to death. As we ran out of asphalt and headed for who knows what----my life did not flash before my eyes. It was very quiet and I think I said "Oh!". I don't know whether I will volunteer for another "road trip" any time soon.

On my return, moments ago----see how much you all mean to me?---I checked my messages on the answering machine and sometime in the past two weeks a panicked co-worker tried to inform me that the library board is trying to replace me. Can you believe that? I started laughing. No one can replace ME!!!!

I don't have the camera hooked up for pictures. So tomorrow I'll have a picture of my flowers, some fabric or something. Can't wait to read all your blogs and see what I've been missing.

VERY pleased that it wasn't your time...yeesh! That sounds like scary experience. When T and I were on our road trip it was ME (I admit it) who had a close encounter with a semi...just one though. T's eyes were closed and he could feel me go off the road and then back on. We just don't discuss it. HA.

As for the library...what's that about? Why do they want to replace you?

Let's see what your up to visually. Get the pics up, girl.

Welcome home! I'm so glad to hear from you. Big trucks freak me out. That and garbage disposals. I'm weird. I'm glad you are home safe.
