If you have reading this blog for any length of time then you know I love a good road trip ( By the way, thanks for reading my ramblings )
Tomorrow I'm off for another road trip. I have 5 days off with Christmas so I'm going to drive south to MO and spend Christmas with my sister Patty's in laws. ( Yep, not my in laws, my sisters ) They are good peeps. They live south of Jefferson City. I googled the route to take for the fast way down. I will take I-94 west then take I-35 south till I run into Kansas City then go East on I-70 then drop South on Hwy 87. From there it's take a county road, turn left, up a hill, down a road till you see 5 cows and 2 pigs then do the shimmy shimmy shake and there you are. On the way back I will take back roads as hey, I have not seen those back roads yet and they are calling my name.
One problem. They ( Those weather people ) are forecasting a big storm for Wed and Thur. I might be from AK and have done my fare share of winter driving but I'm not stupid! If it's a blizzard, with white out conditions and with drifting snow them I'm staying home. Then I will go to my friend Kellie's house for Christmas ( That's what Kellie wants to happen ) If I do go I will have my winter jacket, boots, beaver hat and mittens and plenty of snacks and water, just in case. I was watching the news about the big storm over on the East coast and how some folks got stuck for more then a day on the interstate when they went off the road.
I'm not going to take my computer with me so I wont be blogging while I'm gone. I will take pictures though. The sisters in laws have goats and other animals. I want to trim some hooves so I get better at with my own goats. When I say they have goats, I think that they have over 50? Not really sure. I just know that they have lots of them.
So you all have a Merry Merry Christmas and stay warm. I'm going to get religious on you for a second here. Don't forget the reason we have Christmas. It's not about santa, gifts or having good cheer. It's real simple. Christmas = Easter = Saved. I think that the reason I felt that I needed to get religious on you is that I'm tired of all stores, schools and TV stations being so politically correct that some folks really have no clue why we celebrate Christmas.
