I've had a busy week of travel. I left on Sunday morning and drove to Independence, Kansas, where I rendezvoused with my sister Charlotte and her son Grant. On Monday morning, my brother Dwight and his son Michael arrived, and we all attended my Aunt Cleona Allen's funeral. Aunt Cleona was my father's sister.
Monday night and Tuesday, I visited at Dwight and Kathy's home near Spivey, Kansas. Wednesday, I drove to Charlotte's house near Wheatland, Missouri, and today I drove home.
Even though the circumstances weren't happy, it was good to see my cousins and of course, my brother and sister and their families, too.
I enjoyed the drive through the Kansas prairies and the Missouri Ozarks. Since I was by myself, I had lots of time to think. I listened to what I liked on the radio, and no one complained when I pulled over to take pictures or stretch my legs.
I'm glad to be home tonight. I'm really tired, so I'm headed for a good long snooze in my own bed.
