I'm Baaaaaccccckkkk!!!

Just wanted to tell you all that I'm back... Butt-sprung from driving 1200 miles in three days and wondering when my mind will catch up to the rest of me, but I'm home. And after the experience of the last three days I've never been happier to be home.

I met some really great folks that live down in the cut-off on the Mississippi levee, all were very concerned about my/their friend, and all were relieved that she was going to be able to get back to Tulsa where her doctors are, so hopefully they will be able to get her back on her feet and functional.

All I could concentrate on, in that last two hours of the drive from Tulsa to home, was how good my own bed would feel and how badly I wanted to get my hands back in the Oklahoma dirt to reassure myself that, yes, I was finally home.

Thank you all for your safe travel prayers and when my brain catches up with me there will be joy in my little corner of blogland and some posts that will be way more interesting that this one.

Mostly I just wanted to say thank you and thank God I'm safely home.

So happy you had a safe trip! Have you had a chance to look at the little newborn Eagle? One of 3 eggs have hatched. Yesterday, after the first hatched, Mom and Dad were both there feeding it. It was awesome. Hopefully you will see the second and third hatch. Glad to have you back.
