Are we there Yet

Day 2 of traveling we left Sweetwater Tennessee a lil after 7am we still had a good 8 hours ahead of us. (but with all the detours we encountered add another 3 on that) Mom and I would rotate who sat up front with pop (mom is not crazy about sitting and watching the driving it makes her very nervous..of course when I would be up front with pop...Rudey dog was right there on my lap she has to be able to see where we were going. She was ready to get out of the RV even though it is a wonderful way to travel..it was hard on the 2 dogs. Rudey almost got killed at one rest stop. I am still having nightmares...STUPID ASS Alabama wants you to only walk your dog on the median strip right by the highway...as I was crossing with her in front of 1500 hundred semi's to get to the strip between parking and the median and where the interstate 5 feet away from where they want your dog to poop and then want you to scoop it... as I passed in front of this one truck the dude was sitting in there on his phone and he did his air brakes at us... ON purpose the f**kwad...of course Rudey freaked out and pulled her collar off and took off on me...I freaked I almost got killed... then I almost killed that dude..!! I screamed my mother and others went crazy and with the help of mom and others I got her back ..but folks it was extremely close... Then I went after the trucker... I was too through with that Mother F**Ker... well needless to say he drove off... (good choice then dealing with me)If I could have gotten my hands on him...course mama was afraid I was going to get shot...I know he heard everything I said and was calling him...!!! Makes me shakes just thinking about it and how horrible of a person he was to do that on purpose to a poor lil dog..or me...creep! He will think berfore ever doing that again!
are we almost there
the mountains are beautiful and the drive was beautiful..just a lil long...
Went to the country store for some shopping before dinner...this is where dardar lost her whole life her purse and everything else she owned packed in it including the camera. We stopped as we were leaving for this picture. I had bought a couple of goodies...well after the 30 minute drive home in a horrible thunderstorm. I realized I didn't have my purse. I freaked out big time!! (again) I grabbed the store receipt and called them immediately ... they found my purse right under where my big ass was sitting ...thank goodness it had falling under the chair in the very back it didn't show till they went looking for it. They locked it in the safe for me and after and hour drive back...because of the horrible weather I got my whole life back, (money, phone, credit cards, keys, ipod x 2 only thing not it it was Rudey)..Praise the Lord how lucky was I!
Richard and Jennifer the ones we went to see the ones my beautiful babies belong to.
Ella came right too me when they came to pick me up from the camp ground
Travis on the left and West on the Right
West kept hugging me and telling me how much he misses me... sweet boy
Well, that is a few updates for you guys.. I will have tons more. I have tons more pictures. I am extremely happy being with my lil family and esp. the kids. My babies are getting big. West, is asking everyday if when he wakes up in the morning will I still be here..it's gonna be hard leaving already dreading the goodbyes...West is the main concern being that he is so aware of what is going on and that our times together have gotten few and very far in between. Going to need a lot of kleenexes.

Oh my! That whole experience with Rudey made my stomach turn! I am so sorry those Alabamians aren't as nice about Dogs and poo as they used to be. . . .

As far as your family visit, what a lovely family you have. . . make lots of memories! I am glad you are having so much fun! People are missing you around here and it looks like you are doing what is SOOOO important. . . having quality family time!
Hugs,
Sharon

p.s. I was the first to sign this comment space and another the other day, only because you are not here. . .

Pastor Sharon said...

Did I tell you already that we miss you in blogland?

Suzy said...

That Rudey story is so horrifying. To hell with rules, you take your pet where you want and if a cop comes, tell him HIS way is how you lost your last dog. Fake some tears. Assholes. I hate truckers now.

Hit 40 said...

The Rudey story also really scared me!!! DAMN TRUCKER I am thinking bad karma thoughts right now.

Folks like to honk at my kids and I while we bike. It is too loud. Scares us too!! Assholes!!

Then you had to go back for your purse!!! WoW!!

I posted a funny on you yesterday about your farming.

darsden said...

Pastor Sharon-I always scoop Rudey's poo that wasn't and never is a problem...it was just that all the rest area's have you walking your dog right there on the interstate instead of the back of the rest stop Makes NO sense to me. I have been keeping up just not able to make a lot of comments I have been noticing you sneaky up on the comment list :-)
Thankyou yes they are a beautiful group!

oKay I LOVE Alabama I just don't agree with the dog trails!

darsden said...

Suzy-Rudey story is still giving me nightmare..only has taking 4 xanex's so far..trust me on the way home they will have to chase me down I am walking her where ever I feel like and I will use your I lost a dog already story..Thanks!

darsden said...

Pastor Sharon-I miss you guys too..hard to juggle everything..LOL

Gaston Studio said...

OMG, I'm so glad that you and Rudey escaped the stupid trucker! odd, because most truckers are thoughtful of other drivers on the road; maybe he was a newbie and hasn't developed his manners as yet.
Those babies are gorgeous and I know you're having a ball being with them and the rest of your family. Enjoy!

darsden said...

Hit 40-I bet that does scare you and the kids. Some people are just rude and so miserable they have to inflict it on others. They will all get theirs one day! I will have to check that post out later today..thank you in advance though!

darsden said...

Again would like to say I love Alabama..."Alabama the beautiful" but I will be writing a letter to the state about the practices they use for beloved pet owners! (that area they stink)

lisa said...

Wow! You're having quite an adventure. The trucker will never learn....it's sport for him. And I'm glad you retrieved your purse in tact.

Pearl said...
