Time Flies!

Six months since my last blog entry — guess I just haven’t been in the mood.  Since June, I’ve taken a long vacation and a mini-vacation.


Caprock, UT

In August, I used up just about the last of my perk points with the airlines, hotels and rental cars, flew to Salt Lake City, Utah and drove to Lubbock, Texas.


Monument Valley AZ

I’ve always liked southwestern United States, and have visited a few times for work and play.  Figuring this would probably be my last chance to visit again, since I’m no longer traveling for work, I decided to try and see some sights I’ve missed in the past, and end up in Roswell, New Mexico to see the UFO center of the universe.

From there, I had to get to the nearest big-city airport, which was in Lubbock, Texas.  Had no particular sights I wanted to see there, but I did find a good barbecue place for lunch before my flight left town.

In October, I took my daughter up to Iowa to visit family.  My aunt expressed a desire to see the Grotto of the Redemption, so we hopped in the car one day to check it out.

And that’s all the sightseeing I’ve done during the last six months.
