Back from Vacation

What follows is a personal diary entry from June 20.

The Great Western Family Vacation of 2006 is over. We went through Colorado Springs, Denver etc., through Utah to Las Vegas to Anaheim (Disneyland), then Laguna Beach, then the Grand Canyon and Albuquerque and Muskogee OK etc. and then back to Kentucky.

The vacation lasted two weeks on the nose. Everything was wonderful, EXCEPT my SUV broke down in the early afternoon of the last day of traveling. We finished the trip in a rental car.

The engine blew in Rolla, Missouri. I now have to have a new engine installed, or replace the vehicle.

So: I got up Saturday morning and drove (with a friend of mine) to take the rental car back to Rolla and put my SUV up on a flatbed trailer and bring it back here. We left at 4 a.m. Saturday morning and got back at 4 a.m. Sunday morning. 24 hours on the nose.

It's in the mechanics hands, now.

Anyway. GREAT, wonderful, fun, relaxing vacation. Crummy way to end it, but it doesn't come close to ruining things--it was STILL great.

Man, I'm hung over from the traveling, and from having to tow the broken-down thing back.
