6 o'clock on Sunday morning

The Expedition sits running in the driveway,
because it's cold out.....
waiting for the last little load to get loaded....

Here sit the guys in the front seat,
fake-smiling, pretending they are fully awake and ready for
what the day is going to bring them........
In the back seat, looking through the passenger window,
is my Lucy, looking as sad and pathetic as ever.....
with a quick double-check of the mapquest printout....
and as my brother says....... "getting ready.... put 'er in the wind." (and the snow and the ice....)
Sunday nights stop - Denver, Colorado.
Buh Bye
to my safe, large, bigger-than-life, tougher than tough truck.

Volkswagen Jetta.

oh goody...................

On the road again, Just can't wait to get on the road again . . The life I love is makin' music with my friends, And I can't wait to get on the road again . . .

On the road again
Goin' places that I've never been
Seein' things that I may never see again, And I can't wait to get on the road again.

On the road again, Like a band of gypsies we go down the highway
We're the best of friends . . Insisting that the world be turnin' our way And our way

Don't know why that song popped in my head. . . but it did !!! Lucy, my love, you are the sweetest little thing and Garrin will so be happy when he sees you again and can say "Lucy, I am so glad we are home!"

this post made me feel a little sad for you guys. Just a pang.
Because it's sad that you're leaving what has been "home" for what will be "home" - and the "will be" is what makes the sadness go away.
Love you.
