THE Trip, THE Encore' :: Loosing Our Travel Companions

Copyright 2013, CABS for Reflections From the Fence

As we knew would happen at some point, we are sadly parting our travel paths with dear friends J & D.

J & D are going the other direction, continuing on till they hit the left ocean. We are going to miss them so much. The dry wit, the deep research, the tidbits of info they toss out our way, the wise choices, the suggestions as to where the next Flying J is! LOL

J & D at Sabino Canyon near Tucson, we will miss watching D find the most interesting things to photograph.  We will miss J and his studious ways.

They have both been gracious beyond the call of duty, even when I blew up during the Discover card freezeups.  These are the kinds of friends that go looking around a campground to see if there are other spots we could both move into when I was distressed at the barbed wire in Tucson.  After setting up for an hour or so they come back with alternative sites.  What good friends.  No, we did not move, I kept the blinds down and just did not look at that stinkin' barbed wire.

D and I would fight for photo ops!  LOL   At times we would get giggling, till we had to assume the crossed legs positions.  All the gals will get that!  We decided that was our code to each other.  When things got too funny to talk, we just crossed our legs.

Man and J solved problems together, two analytical minds, the problems did not stand a chance!  J the man who has the eagle eye for solving and finding caches and my MIA earring.  That earring better not fall out again without J to find it for me!

To the perfect gentleman and his wonderful wife, THANK YOU!  It has been a great experience.  And, so much more, like the peanut butter pie!

You taught us much, no manner or amount of thank you will suffice.  Safe rides, and enjoy the left coast, cannot wait to see the photos!

We laughed, and laughed some more.  Crossing my legs, one more time.
