On the road again...........insert music notes here.......

Little guys new boots-he hates them........
My new boots......pink........I love them..........
Heading to New Hampshire for 3 day scrapbooking weekend with family/friends! Will be cut a day short -to come home for my aunt Julias funeral. She was 95 and had a wonderful, full, and simple life as a mother-wife-sister-friend. She loved and was loved by many.
Aunt Julias high school picture-love her smile!
Aunt Julia holding her first born-75 yrs ago. With her sisters-my mom on her left and my other aunt on her right! I love this picture!
This was the entrance for the doggie day care where my sister in law took her dog for our weekend away!
One of my trees-missing ornaments on the bottom arms reach for 1yr old!! And he thinks tree skirt is something you use to cover one if his kitties with!!?!!
Love New Hampshire and the working covered bridges that are everywhere!
Sunrise from our cabin....
The ducks were padding around-but was too bright for camera to pick them up!!
My turn to cross the street........
Small town America!- love it-Lee Mass football team were going to state finals! All the players had signs on Main Street for support-this one is for my nieces son!!
Hey granny Trace you need your road named after you too!! Love it!!
So 23 miles from home.....after 500 miles.....my dependable ole little truck has a tussle with a cement culvert and mud hole and lost-after taking out a section of horse fencing....I'm fine-except quite lame and bruised this am. The police and man who helped me out couldn't believe I walked away. My guardian angel was on my shoulder again. Truck is totaled.
This fence held in a stalion-thank goodness he was in the back pasture...
So thankful I'm home to my family and this little guy......
Had his Christmas pictures done while I was away...........perfect......

Now that is not news you just tuck into the end of a post! That and that darling little guy should have been right up front. Okay, you can save the best for last like you did with little guy, but OMG you crashed your truck! So glad you are okay! What a wonderful trip otherwise right?

Rain, you DO have a guardian angel for sure. Love all the vintage pictures of your family and the brand spanking new one of your sweet grandson. So sorry to hear about your Aunt's passing, those lovely pictures of her are treasures. ~Lili
