All Good Things

They say all good things must come to an end. We are on the tail end of our five week break from the cold Montana winter. It’s been a wonderful set of experiences with family and friends.

If you’ve been following along, you know we left Ennis, Montana on Dec. 23 and spent Christmas Eve and the week following at our son’s in Placerville, CA.

You may remember that we went from there to Bob’s older brother’s in central CA where we spent New Year’s Eve and a few days after.

Bill and Bob spent long hours discussing family history.

Then we enjoyed a weekend in Redlands, CA with dear friends who live 50% of the year in our MT “hood.”

On January 6th we began our 2 week stay in a rented condo facing the 9th fairway of the Rancho Las Palmas Country Club in the sunny Coachella Valley. While there we had the joy of hosting, entertaining, feeding, and sharing time with a dozen or more family and friends.

Plus, we took time for walks in the desert and time for ourselves in the relaxation of the jacuzzi.

From Rancho Mirage we returned to the San Joaquin Valley where we spent a few days with Bob’s younger bro & his family – and then a few days with my BFF, Marcie. In Turlock I had a whirlwind of lunches and reunions with long cherished friends, some of whom I had not seen in the 20 years since I retired.

Both of these dear ladies had lost at least 30 lbs. since we last met. It was sooo good to see them looking so happy and healthy!

And now, as I said, all good things must come to an end. We are on our way back full circle to our son’s in Placerville, CA. Then onward to Montana. It’s been a great trip. Our last night with Marcie included another reunion with a dozen long-time friends. Lotsa hugging. Lotsa laughter. Lotsa love shared.

Time flies when yer havin’ fun!

I pray you’re havin’ fun, too.

Thanks for sharing the highlights of our CA adventures with us.

See ya tomorrow.

    • Thanks, Savannah, yes it was a fabulous memory-making and memory-reminiscing time. Have you had such great experiences even at your young age?

      • Oh goodness, I’d say so! I’ve been on many trips, and even spent about 9 months in another country! Many adventures! 😍

      • Good for you! I spent 7 months in Germany years ago. Those kinds of eye-opening experiences are so valuable, aren’t they?

      • They are! Although I’m afraid sometimes we don’t realize it until they’re gone…but still hold good memories!
