We are here in Kansas with our daughter and her family.. The Traveling Skateboard page will not be where I post from now on. I can’t get pictures to post there so there is no point. So, when we get on the road to Branson I will post the Traveling Skateboard pictures here.
The drive up from Texas was pretty easy. Weather has been good and spending the time with Kurt and Wolfgang is priceless. I miss Arthur. Trying to keep myself from falling apart is a constant struggle. Not that I am not thrilled to be here, I am. It’s just I guess I thought once we got away from home the continuous reminders would not be as prominent. They are still everywhere. I see places along the way I know Artie would loved to have skated. Classic cars on the highway, the sun on the horizon, even just the freshness of the air. Saw a pirate ship in a kids play area. He would have gotten a kick out of that. I remember almost every road trip we have ever made. Especially the last one. It was he and I driving from Kansas to Oklahoma. Then we flew home to Houston. Those short periods of time are the ones I cherish most. We talked about him getting his car redone, what he wanted to do as he got older and the kind of life he wanted to have.
It was in May before things really went wrong for him.
I know he is watching and will be here with us this Holiday season.
When we get on the road to Branson I will start posting pictures.. Hug your loved ones. Live in your gratitude and cherish every moment.
