We Survived the Drive Home!!!

It's now 2:35 a.m. -- and we're just in the door from returning from Seattle, Washington (well, Auburn). And we are ALIVE and WELL. So is the car.

And that is really something of a MIRACLE. I'm not joking. Our joke became how often one of us would say: "What's that in the road?" (Or "What's that parked on the side of the road?" or, "What's that beside the road?")

In one case it was a CAR in OUR LANE (directly in front of us) -- which was flipped upside down. I have no idea how Marilyn avoided it!

In another case it was a HUGE BOULDER from a landslide directly in front of us in the lane. She barely managed to swerve and miss it -- and then barely missed being hit by the jackass behind us who had been tailgating us!!!

More tomorrow. We're very tired -- and worn out from the stress of the trip in a total DOWNPOUR plus wind on a highway where we were going 60 and being passed on both sides like we were standing still!

Marilyn is -- as I always say -- AMAZING. We were a good team, actually. I was also praying like mad the entire trip, nearly non-stop. Thank you, St. Jude!!!

I need to put down in writing the many other obstacles we somehow avoided, too. But we have that funeral first thing in the morning, so sleep beckons!

Stay safe, my friends!!!
