Saturday Photo Hunt



The word for today is "ROAD". I went through my pictures from when we went out to pick up my parents when they were living in Arizona. Here you can see the San Francisco Peaks!! I just love mountains but the good thing is that there is a ROAD in there too...I have found my picture for today!!

This was taken in March 2007!! That was a very very long trip. We started here in Georgia and had several big flats on our motor home. We went to Arizona and picked up my parents then drove them across country to Illinois!! Plus after getting them settled we had that trip from Illinois back to Georgia!! It was fun but very expensive with the tires blowing out all of the time.

Madison and I are sitting here at our computers this morning. Just had our great breakfast!! She is playing a game and well you know what I am doing!! Hope your day is GRAND!! We still have cool weather..YES!!

FLIP FLOP
Thought for the day: "A good time to keep your mouth shut is when you are in deep water."

Interesting road picture, especially to me since I live in AZ. That's terrible that you had to fix so many tires. I remember years ago watching my Dad put tubes in tires and then put them on the rim and blow them up. Tires have changed a lot like everything else.
Have a great weekend.

This is when I first started reading your blog when you all went down to AZ to get your folks. I didn't hardly know what a blog was then but it looked like fun. and the rest as they say is History! I remember you all having so many flats!
I am glad your folks are happy up in IL.
Have a nice weekend! Grams

Sandy,

I enjoyed your show and tell below. I'm sorry I missed it.

Love your road photo and since we traveled from Ontario to Arkansas and back up through Missouri, Illinois, Michigan and back home, I can relate to your trip. It is a long drive. We love traveling but are always happy to be back home.

Thanks for your comment on my "It's your Right!post. I always enjoy visiting with you. Enjoy your weekend. Our weather is lovely today.

Blessings,
Mary

Love the new look header for your blog, Sandy.

That road looks so inviting...it's just begging to be travelled on. I remember you telling us about your big trip and all the flat tyres.

Hope you have a wonderful day Sandy!

Happy Fall to you too.

Have a blessed day.

Great picture! I love the mountains! Being here in California, I'm loving the mountains all around. Dayna's apartment is in a small valley just north of Los Angeles. We plan on doing some 'sight-seeing' when she's feeling better. Hope you're well!

Betty said...

Tis me again. I forgot to tell you how much I like your new header.

On the road again...that will be us in October. Sure miss our moho travels...but cruising is fun, too!

Denise said...

Oh I love your thought for the day! I need to figure out a way to put that on something! Also me and my DH just love to ride ..... Just get in the car and take 2-3 day trips to just ride and see what we can see....... We would love to have a motor home one of these days..... We will see.........

Have a great week girl and I will try to get around more often!

Yes I love the road picture too, I always thought the San Francisco Peaks were so pretty especially when they had snow on them. You can see them better when you go to the Grand Canyon out there. AZ has some very beautiful country as you know when you came to visit us one time when we were trailering out that way. Love the purse it is so cute, I am going to try to make one with the material you brought me, ok? Love pictures. Love Mother & Dad
