Wall"ed" in

   We (I) did an addition to the travel blog yesterday but touched something on this computer somewhere and everything went away , never to return.I'm still new at this business.  Besides that, this Mountain Standard Time has us all messed up. It is almost 5am and we are both up and going.

   It's cold in Wall, SD.  Never got out of the thirties yesterday. It rained hard. The wind blew wildly and rocked this Georgieboy Cruise Master at will. Sweet Lynda prepared lots of nourishing food and we ate well throughout the day. She does not allow me to have too much junk food. Smart wife and good cook, that Lynda.

   Talked to the KY farm yesterday. Only if I stand facing a certain way and don't move a muscle, does the cell phone work.  Kristen, Grandson Daniel's super-wife, is in KY for a couple of weeks
while Daniel is with the army in Peru.  She is carrying in her slightly protruding belly the greatest gift from God that the couple will ever receive.  Due around the end of October or so.
We are all excited. This will be our first great-grandchild.

   We drove the Badlands Loop. Lynda's first viewing. She went ape. To be honest, it is absolutely AWESOME!!!  It was lousy weather so photos were so-so. If the sun comes out we might drive a few miles back in this morning.  Following that, we stopped at the Wounded Knee museum here in town. The massacre took place on December 28, 1890. A sad event in our history. Certainly worth reading about. Then it was back to Wall Drug store to finish up. Picked up a couple of Louis L'amour books I didn't have. Ready for some Louie-ism's? Here goes.

From: TO THE FAR BLUE MOUNTAINS
    
     "For land beyond the mountains is ever a dream and a challenge, and each generation needs that, the dream of some far-off place to go."

   That' s all for this morning. We are off to Custer later today. This is Sunday. " This is the day that the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it."

Love and blessings ..... Winston & Lynda

Hi guys! I finally got on the blog. You know that I don't spend a lot of time on my computer, but I didn't want you to think that I was uninterested.

I decided that it was a good thing that I looked up the blog so I could find out that Kristin is pregnant!!! Hello, I don't live that far away, and I do have a phone. So next time, call me with news like that. Congratulations, Kristin and Daniel (if you're reading my comment)!!!

Okay, that's it for me for now. Love to all!!
