Travel is fun, but there’s no place like home

September 16, 2010

Why is it that time goes fast when you are having fun?

We are back from vacation now and to the “real world” of piled up mail and a yard that needs much attention. It seems the winds blew hard while we were gone and with Mother Nature doing her housecleaning in her trees, she eliminated all the little dead branches and twigs right into our driveway and yard. I am sure she thinks we have nothing better to do.

Aside from that fact we are happy to be home safely. We don’t usually take such a long trip, being gone one day short of three weeks. This was sort of an exception since we celebrated 60 years of marriage in June and had thought about doing something special for that, this just seemed to be the thing to do. The most special thing was attending our grandson’s wedding in Evergreen, Colo., that was just beautiful. From there we went on to visit relatives in Denver and Pueblo, Colo., Albuquerque, N.M., and Sun City, Ariz.

Naturally, since we got home it has been nonstop with activities. Our community was just busting with things to do this last weekend. There was the First City Festival in Leavenworth. It is always fun to be on Delaware Street in a booth watching the folks stroll by and catching a visit with old and new friends in the process. Then there was Lansing’s Friday night home football game that we got shooed away from before halftime because of lightning and thunder. Saturday was a beautiful day and the game was finished at 2 p.m with Lansing having its second win of the season. There was volleyball in the Lansing Gym going on at the same time, and on Saturday evening we attended the night of Traditional Dance from India, Tandav to Tarangam, in our beautiful auditorium. They were an extremely talented group with beautiful colorful costumes.

It is wonderful to travel and see what’s going on in the rest of the world, but “There’s No Place Like Home.”
