Molly! What a way to start your life! On a motorcycle in the rain! Don't worry, baby. It gets much better after this. God bless Molly and your lives together! I hope she's as wonderful a dog as you deserve and desire. So happy for you. And she's a cutie, too!

That picture of her says a lot. She must be thinking, "Who are these people? What is my life going to be like with them?" Not many puppies get taken for a long ride to their new home on a motorcycle. In fact, I think your the first that I know of! Have a great trip. Your bike is packed to the gills! Sorry about the rain. Hoping for brighter days.

Hitting the road again tomorrow, after enjoying our time with dd & family. I'm really going to miss Molly. Need prayer to not get scared for her. After losing Shelby, I've become a worrier. I guess the adrenals have something to do with the panic stuff.
Talk with you when we get back!
Blessings!

Have a wonderful trip Debby and that little Molly stays safe while you are gone. I'm sure you have a list made out for your Dd on how to take care of your little baby.

"Talk with you when we get back"??? That's not when you plan to write us a blurb every now and then, is it? I'm expecting near daily reports, woman! Don't disappoint me! I can hear you about worrying for Molly. If you gave the family the heads-up on what happened with Shelby, then they should be super cautious about what she has access to and that she shouldn't be left unattended. She'll be okay and ready for your return. Please trust in the Lord that your new fur-baby will be waiting for you when you come home.

I still say the same thing: If it were me, I wouldn't have been able to drive away knowing I had a new baby at home. But I'm glad you got your Molly and I pray that she and you have a lovely life together.

And don't make us wait for your return to hear from you!

Thanks girls,
Cheryl I meant talk to you when I get internet access. Not sure if that will be tomorrow or 2-3 days from now... our cabin is out of good access. I'm hoping the iphone can work.
Blessings,
Debby

Molly is just so cute Debby ! I know it was hard to leave her ...... <3

glad you are having fun so far on your trip ! I thought you were staying at each place about a week, but you only stayed a few days at DD's ? Do you see her pretty frequently ? So sweet of her and Gkids to watch your new "baby" for you !

Have fun, and yes, post often ! We are enjoying your trip 'with you'

And, what I'm more excited about then anything... I found a pup! We'll be picking her up when we get back. Can't wait!!

I've increased my thyroid meds over the last week or so. Figured out that it was too low again, by the temperature & realized that's what's been causing the bit of creeping up. So, anyway today my temp was normal again & my wt. is back to goal. Don't know why its so hard for me to clue into that! LOL I thought it was just the salt.

God is good/All the time; All the time/God is good!

Blessings all!
Congratulations!! She's beautiful!! What an adorable little fur baby!! So sweet! I'll bet coming home to her will soften the end of the trip! Let me know when you're in town if you'd like to get together. I'm home now and would love to meet up if that works for you. Totally understand the travel thing, but let me know!!

Hi,

Rode from Spokane to here New Meadows Idaho. We are both tuckered right out... got up a 5:45 am, after staying up to 11 pm last night... Walked to restaurant & had southern BBQ ribs (yummy)! And then took our half hour walk around town.

I will call you Julie, looking forward to hearing how your trip was too!


Hope you're doing well,


Love,

Debby

Hi
We're having a good ride, enjoyed the beautiful scenery of Idaho yesterday. Continuing on South today.

Eating is going well, I try for salads & meats. Not always able to find them though. A little extra room around the waist is just fine.

Hope you are all safe & well!

Deb and Julie! Glad you're having a good trip, Deb. I'm laughing about the "but it's a dry heat" comment. Yes it is, but so is an oven. I used to live out there too and that's what I always had to say when someone said that phrase. I remember how every car had those dashboard covers to keep the leather from cracking and how we used to have to leave the car windows open an inch so the temps in the car wouldn't shatter the glass. Oh, how I remember.

Hot is hot! The only place to be in hot summertime weather is in water. I need me some water. I asked my landlady if I could buy a small, inexpensive pool but she said the liability insurance would be too much. I said I'd just take more cool showers. But I really do wish I could swim somewhere with my baby dog.

We used to swim together when we rented a house on a lake, back before I bought my house. There's nothing more fun than swimming beside my girl. Haven't been able to find a place to do that with her since we moved. I need to try harder.

Hi all!

Wow, we had another marathon day. We are in Naturita, Colorado now. It was well over 100 today, too hot for me! Had to get rid of extra layers & resort to getting T-shirt wet in the end. Used lots of sunscreen on my nose & cheeks. Beautiful scenic drive though!

Here's a new page I'm working on... pics & map both... haven't filled in details yet though.
Spot Adventures: View A SPOT Adventure

Thanks Julie, I think we experienced some of your heat... although I'm sure its even hotter where you are. We really need cooling vests for this heat. Hope we can find some tomorrow!

Enjoyed beef taco's tonight. Loving having internet after a night of very poor internet.

G'nite

I saw your pics on facebook today. They're wonderful! Sorry the heat is so intense. Cooling vests? What are they and where can I buy one? Could use one myself. Sleep tight and thanks for taking us along with you!

It was gorgeous! And we survived... 2 more days to SIL... or 10 hrs driving.
It would probably really help on the farm! You buy them at motorcycle shops... or online on amazon... do a search for motorcycle cooling vests.

Good Night!

Are you going to stop and visit with Julie? You'd better! I can't wait to see pics of you and her together. You need to get some rest tonight. Thank God for quiet a/c's and nice hotel rooms. Nine hours of driving after a poor night's sleep is dangerous. Please don't push it when you are tired, Debby. It's not worth the risk. You've got PLENTY of time for this trip.

Do you miss Molly? Are they sending you pics of her so you can watch her growing in her first month as your daughter? I want to see them, too!

Sweet dreams, darling. Stay safe.

Yep, gonna call Julie once I get settled... maybe get together for coffee?
I have another online friend in the area to do the same with too.

my facebook page has updated pic of the dgk's with Molly... enjoy! Yep I miss Molly, but glad she's not with us in this heat!

it's just really pretty and you go up and it gets cooler and cooler as you go ...... sometimes like 20 degrees cooler. Neat shops and there's a "watering/swimming" hole up there that is ICE cold ! really neat

Sedona is our favorite place in AZ! Beautiful red rocks (similar to Garde of the gods in CO Springs) and yes, cooler than down here in the valley. Slide Rock state park is a great place to stop and swim.definitely worth at least driving through.

So glad you're enjoying the ride. I'll bet that heat really wears you out. How ,ong will you be in AZ. I'm singing in a wedding on Sat, but aside from that not too busy this week. Looking forward to meeting you .

Hi gals,
Well a little issue today... we discovered this on our tire!



So, DH left me here & went to the nearest motorcycle shop for a new tire. in Show Low... I'm in St Johns.
Praying he is safe!

Yes that will be so cool Julie, to meet! We will be staying with family, so I will be working around whatever it is they have planned for us. Maybe message me your phone number? (thanks)

Well, as for me, a restful morning in the comfy motel is pretty nice!

Wow, Deb. So glad you get to rest in the motel and not along the side of the road somewhere, until DH makes it back with the tire. Did he have to hitch hike? I hope all is well and you are back on the road, safe and sound soon.
