My wife, son, and I are safely home in South Dakota for the next week. The 15 hour drive went well. The weather cooperated. A bit cloudy, but the moment we hit the SD state line (I’m totally not kidding on this), it was a beautiful, clear blue sky.
It is gorgeous . . . . about 80 degrees with a slight breeze; perfect weather. My wife is with her family, I am with mine. My son is in the living room playing with a singing chipmunk and watching Dora the Explorer with grandma. And the Godfathers Pizza is on the way. Life . . . . is good!
