Sunday, October 4th.

This picture has nothing to do with our trip to Puyallup this weekend, however this is my sister in a sweatshirt she bought at the Unclaimed Baggage Store in Scottsboro, Alabama. Her family was watching UT play (University of Tennessee play) thus all the orange but she wore that for me. Bless her heart.
We did go to Puyallup this weekend for our brother in law, Jim Trotter's Memorial Service. It was nice enough. Not what I would have planned but it was what his children wanted and that is what was important. After the service we went up to Buckley and had an afternoon and evening with all his kids and their kids ect. It was good to see every one. On our way up there, this picture just screamed at me. I miss "my" mountain. Grew up with it in view all my life until we moved to Eastern Washington.
My past generations lived in Bonny Lake. Great Grandfather, that generation and some since I believe. My Grandmother Kephart was a Myers. I know this road is named for the family some time back. Bob had to make a quick turn in heavy traffic so I could get this picture. My maiden name was Myers.

I always get nostalgic when we go thru Puyallup. I loved the fair. It has turned into a gigantic fair now = 13 days I believe. I really always want to go every year but it has been a while. I think the last time was about 9 years ago. Bob won tickets to go see Reba McEntire at the fair and he did not want to go so Nikki and I went. We had a fun day and saw a nice show.

This is my Saturday Smile picture. Even if it is Sunday. This is on a trailer and is an advertisement for a haunted house. The workmanship is phenomenal. I think it was in Buckley. We were a little ahead of the rest of the family so we just drove around. We had not been up that way for many years. I just thought it was so cool.

This tree was in the parking lot of the church where the service was held. It was so vivid. I loved it.

This is our nephew William who lives in Rock Island, Illinois. I did not know I caught him with his mouth open. He is a very wonderful young man. His wife Pam is a Biochemist, smartest person I will ever know and he teaches math in a Junior College. We had not seen him for a very long time and it was good to see him and to talk to him.

This is our grand nephew Jason and his wife Christy. I included this picture because Christy is an awesome young woman. She has lost 215 pounds and still has many to go but she is commit ed to it. Nice kids.
We came home the "back way" because I90 was closed because of dust storms. We left the Interstate at George, went to Ephrata, Soap Lake and then to Odessa, Davenport and home. We got the back edge of the dust though and I will be blowing dirt out of my head for days.
Fast Eddie got out twice while we were gone so he was in a little pen. He is so cute. I think he goes on Craig's List Monday or Tuesday. I going to ask 100.00 for him. Then we may keep Chemmy for a while and see if he will carry a pack saddle. Yuma will but have never really ponied him and we want to do that.

It is good to be home and my very own bed is waiting........................


  1. You were SO close to my house!! You should have called! We are 5 minutes from Buckly! Darn it all!

  2. Oh and BOO on the shirt Auntie is wearing! GO HUSKIES! Purple and Gold ALL the way!

  3. I wish I had known that you were coming through town because Ramona, down at Burns, sent me Echo's adoption application on Friday and you have filled it out for us. Poor Echo's paper work never showed up in August and I had to call them. Seems like the little guy fell through the cracks. It's all sorted out now though.
