I’m so tired right now. You see, I just got back from my road trip, visiting my mother, leaving Friday morning and getting back tonight (Monday) that I just did too much in such a short period of time. I’m wiped! But it was all worth it. The drive, which I was dreading, turned out to be great. It was not as bad as what I thought it was going to be. Of course, being with Mother was a real treat too, I had not seen her in over a year, but it was her news that made the trip worth while. I’ll talk more about that a little bit later…. But for now, please click on the link right below to read the rest of the story. 🙂
But anyway, the trip was great. My truck ran good and with the odd road construction, I had few delays.
Driving through Rocky Mountains was breath taking. This was the first time I had gone through the park driving by myself. So, if I saw something that was worthy of a photo, then I would pullover and snap a few. I enjoyed the scenic trip alone. I think having people around you while going through the mountains, sort of takes the magic out of how beautiful they are because you look at all the rock formations and imagine just how long it took for nature to make them.
When I was in Alberta, Ricky Mountain House, you have no mountains there. But, you can just barley see them, and some small foothills. That was when I realized how much I take my mountains for granted. I missed them in stark contrast to the flatlands of Alberta. I could hardly wait when I start my drive back when I saw the massive towering jagged peaks shooting out of the ground, so far away. It was my mountains calling me–I was coming home! Don’t get me wrong, Alberta is a very nice place… I’m mean; it has nothing wrong with it per-say, But, I was brought up in the mountains of coastal British Columbia, and this is my home, therefor this is where my heart is. So, me ever moving there would require a very extra ordinary set of circumstances indeed like unemployment or some sort of other social chaos that would force me beyond my will to move there…. OK, that might be a little strong, but that is how I feel. I know Mom will be reading this…. he he he.
Anyway, the news… It looks like Mom is getting Married! So for the rest of the family who reads this, here is the latest. Mom just got engaged and she wanted me to come up and meet him. Me “Dean,” we got together and hit it off right from the start. He wanted my blessing. For me, because we are all so… well, with our own families and far from the nest of our youth, that really, what makes Mom happy, makes my happy too. I’m glad found Mom found some one to share her life with again. I was getting worried about her from being along and just having her job to get her by. So, for my sisters, give me a Email for more details!
Anyway, I’m back… and tired, good night all 🙂
