Road Trip...

I had a great blog post planned for today. I have a quilt finished....a sweet coffee story....something Boo-Bear said that cracked me up...and a story about a guy who came to fix our bathroom. He walked up to the house smoking a cigarette. He put it out but left it on top of a wooden cabinet I have placed oh so pretty on our porch. heh.

All of these have to wait. My dads brother died. I am leaving on a jet plane really early tomorrow so I can be there for the wake. No funeral, just a wake. As my dads family is German and has no Irish or Scottish in them I fear there will be no shouting of "Cheers to Uncle Jack!!" while having a little shot of sumpin sumpin. The only way to get through a wake if you ask me.


So, I'm off to be there for my dad. And I'm taking a crop duster so if you could light a candle for me tomorrow morning and maybe do a chant that I get there safe and sound I'd really appreciate it!
Now go and call all of your uncles and tell them you love them!

If the pilot asks you to lean into the turns, you plane MIGHT be too small. Have a safe travel. I'm sorry to hear about your uncle.

Be sure and duck your head as you get on, its really tight in those little turboprops...oh and keep the windows closed too. Sorry about your Uncle.

I'm so sorry for your lose, Dawn. Even though I'm of pure German descent, I have no idea what a German wake might be like----though by rights it should involve beer and wine. Have a safe trip.

So sorry to hear about your uncle. My dad's brother's been sick for a year and I keep hoping that he's going to beat his cancer but I worry a lot.

Safe journey and I'll have a little sumpin, sumpin for you this weekend to celebrate Uncle Jack's life.
