We survived our weekend mini-vacation and have no lumps,
bumps, or bruises to prove it. Things started out great until
we saw the smoke signals at the crest of an upcoming hill and
noticed the traffic had ground to halt.
After sitting in park for about a half hour traffic started to
move again and we came upon the reason for the delay. A two
vehicle fatal accident complete with one car burnt to the
ground and still looking hot as we passed.
Once things got moving again we marveled at the beauty of our
Iowa countryside. The crops were looking good and sky was blue
with enough clouds to cast interesting shadows on the landscape.
Of course when we arrived in the river city we’d decided to
spend the night at the traffic was bumper to bumper. Yet we
kept our good mood as we were escaping the daily grind, if only
for a short time. I even had some greens with my supper. Well,
if lettuce and pickles on a cheeseburger count.
The ceiling in room didn’t leak, everything else worked, and
the sky put on a spectacular show as the sun dipped behind the
trees. Thanks to the wife for taking the pictures while I was
We arrived back home grinning, refreshed, and ready to tackle
whatever life hits us with until the next getaway. Enjoy our
Saturday, we will have a snicker later that a friend shared.
