It's been a week since we got back from our Arizona trip so I thought I'd better sort through and post a few pictures. Otherwise I've been known to procrastinate then eventually forget about doing it. For anyone who missed it, we flew into Las Vegas, rented a car and drove 1.5 hours south east to a little town called Dolan Springs (the name baffles me as there was no hint of a springs anywhere that I could see--very dry and deserty). There we rented an small guest house at and ostrich ranch. ( The Joshua Tree Ostrich Ranch and Guest House).

Warning: Pic-spam ahead.

Hello all! I'm back from my travels. The cruise was fun--smooth sailing and good weather. There were lots of things to do on board, shows and activities, lots of yummy food and drink, and friendly people--both fellow guests and staff.  We went ashore in Nassau and did a short tour, about two hours, with a guide who drove us around and showed us historical sites and told us a bit of the the city's past. He was very knowledgeable and we enjoyed the tour. After the tour we wandered around a bit and bought some souvenirs to bring home. It was very hot though there and I am not particularly fond of hot weather (I know, I know if you don't like hot why go to a tropical vacation. Hey, it was a long winter and tropical sounded good, but now I remember why I hated going to Florida every single year when the in-laws were still alive). [no offense to my Floridian flisters]. So I was quite happy to get back to the lovely air conditioned ship. Still the cruise was fun and I'd do it again sometime.

We got back to Michigan last night, but spent the night at my daughter's home, and  drove home today. It's good to be back. I missed my dogs and our elderly 'old lady' dog looks like she has lost weight. My son who was coming over to feed them and check on them everyday said she ate when he fed her but she never ate all of her food which she usually does. I think she was pining for us.

I have been catching up on emails, and my flist.  I had quite a few reviews awaiting me, which was nice, as I had just finished posting my sshg_exchange fic to the various archives before leaving on vacation.  I will have a few pictures to post but I'll get to that in a few days. :)

I will be off tomorrow for a quick trip to sunny Florida. cut to spare my flist )

Anyway the whole point of this long post is to say that I may be offline after tomorrow, but then again, I have had fairly good luck in past years picking up a stray signal to connect  my laptop so I may still be around. Hope to get lots of writing done while I'm gone. (fingers crossed). I will be back in Michigan on Monday but will spend the night at my daughter's house and be home next Tuesday. :)
