June 19 in Duncan, Az.

Well, yesterday we received our first mail from home. We have been gone for 4 weeks. What a mess. But deep inside the box was a little note from the IRS. Seems we owe them another 750 bux. I knew I should have paid my accountant to figure my taxes, but we have had good luck the last 3 years with Tax Cut by H&R Block. Hmmm, what to do. We are into our 1st month of a 4 month trip, our tax papers are at home. Oh well, will figure something out.

Teri is gone, with our daughter, teaching some 4h cooking classes at the high school so it is just Sam and me here again today. They spent the day in Safford yesterday shopping and getting home way after dark. So, I got to work on a new to me song on the guitar yesterday. Think I will practice it some more today. Ricky Nelson's Garden Party. Pretty simple.

We left Missouri 4 weeks ago this coming Friday. Drove down to Monroe, La. and spent 5 nights at my youngest brother's. Helped him with some remodeling projects in his home. We left there and drove to Mineral Wells, Tx. and stayed with Walmart there. Got up and drove over to Carlsbad Caverns. Spent two nights there and then drove, on Saturday, to Duncan. We have done 400 miles, give or take a few, on each leg of our journey. Driving the GMC is a blast. It is hard from me to stop as it drives like an expensive car. Rides like an airplane on the air system. Teri and I have done lots of work on it since picking it up 3 years ago. We have installed a glass engine cover. I really enjoy it. It is made of 1/4 inch tempered glass. Approximately 2 feet square. Not only does it allow me to showcase the engine but it lets me look down and see that everything is good and dry as we travel the hiways. Pretty neat. Think I will attach a photo with this writing. Hope everyone has a great day and as always, thanks for stopping by.
