After Six Weeks Off

Omaha, NE

After 6 weeks at home I find myself on the road again.  This time we are on our way to Denver, Salt Lake City and Kansas City.   We left home at 2 pm yesterday afternoon with 1006 miles to cover to get to the first show.  We spent the night in Omaha, NE, near the zoo.  Just past that locomotive setting on the bluff over the Missouri River.  In 1976 I lived not far from where I spent the night.  I had left the Army and had my first job with PIE (Pacific Intermountain Express) as a Trainee.   This area has changed so much, but everywhere and everything has changed.

Today we will drive the rest of the way to Denver.  I must be getting old. I can’t remember the last time I forgot to pack my razor, but I did yesterday.  Well I will treat myself to a new one. 

I have to tell you I am not looking forward to this trip.  March was very warm and I got the itch to plant my garden.  April was cold and I had to cover the plants.  My cows had their calves and now I want finish planting.  My first cutting hay crop can be cut next week if the weatherman is correct about the temperature.  And I will be in on the road.  I am just a frustrated farmer and sometimes it just gets the best of me.

Oh well, if it were easy everyone would do it.  So just come by our booth to visit and pick up that new tool you need for your next project.  I have a special gift for qualifying purchases.  A Quilter’s Rule Tote Bag could be yours.  These are brand new and are off white cotton with burgundy print.  Who will be the first?
