We were back in the repair parking lot in Elkhart, Indiana, for a day or so in May. It was a small planned repair, so parts were in ahead of schedule and mechanic time already on the books. Our time spent repair shop moochdocking was (thankfully) short lived.
Here’s an interesting perspective of our home:
We’ve had endless days of rain while spending time in the Indiana/Illinois/Michigan area. The payoff is seeing the beautiful colors of Spring popping everywhere. I snapped photos of these vibrant tulips on a recent day trip to Shipshewana.
It’s been fun watching the critters come to life as the weather warms. This chubby guy wasn’t shy in greeting us on a recent visit to the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Museum. In fact, he seemed to be looking for some yummy morsels. Like Mike and me, it looks as if he needs to lay off the carbs for a little while. On second thought, I don’t think squirrels eat carbs….
We celebrate Memorial Day this weekend. I remember our servicemen and women who have sacrificed all by reflecting on a flag proudly waving above me. With every crisp snap it makes, I imagine the movement being caused by the collective last breaths of every soldier who died protecting everything it stands for. It’s a stark reminder that the price of my freedom comes at a great cost.
A simple thank you just doesn’t seem to be enough.

Oh my those orange and yellow tulips are gorgeous! We’ve had a few squirrel sightings on our walks recently. Sometimes it’s hard for me to take a picture and hold the leash. I’ll have to practice more with that.
Thanks! I don’t do too much of anything except hold the leash when I take Lexie. I have to do solo walks if I want photos–she’s too nosy and a handful when overexcited. Especially with squirrels and ducks. She loves to chase things.
One day you should check out the tulip gardens just north of Seattle. They are so amazingly beautiful.
I’ll have to put the tulip gardens on my list. I can only imagine the pretty colors. Thanks for adding to my places to go list! 🙂
Oh my god, that squirrel! He’s ENORMOUS! But happy. Clearly. And that’s what counts. 🙂
We just got rained on a bunch crossing the country too, but were glad to avoid any of the really scary weather. It’s been a crazy year, that’s for sure.
He was enormous and obviously prepped well for his long winter. I hope your travel weather has improved. We are finally starting to see some sunny days and will slowly make our way to the South Dakota area.
Love the perspective shot of the rig!!! Glad your repair visit was short. Can’t wait to see you in a few weeks. Happy manatee hugs!!
Just a couple more weeks. I need some happy manatee hugs and moscato! 🙂
