Our Journey...

Think we forgot to tell you a lil bit about what sort of vacay we're on! Last September of 2011, Dad retired. He and momzers got an RV and decided to plan a trip across the country, visiting national parks on the way to Maine (where's that?) for a family reunion. That's a long trip from northern California! Anyway, this blog is now a record of our travels across the good ole U.S. of A. and even Canada - plus all the things we get to do and see! We started our journey mid-March and hope to be back in NoCal by mid-October - yeah!

Blue's True Colors Challenge

Thanks to Blue (http://poopsiestruecolours.blogspot.com/) for suggesting this lyrical challenge, "sung" to a poem by Christina Rossetti.



"What is pink? A rose is pink
By a fountain's brink.


What is red? A poppy's red
In its barley bed.
What is blue? The sky is blue
Where the clouds float thro'.



What is white? A swan is white
Sailing in the light.
(Well... the only "swans" I could find around here)

What is yellow? Pears are yellow,
Rich, ripe and mellow.
What is green? The grass is green,
With small flowers between.


What is violet? Clouds are violet
In the summer twilight.


What is orange? Why, an orange,
Just an orange!"

Have a nice Tuesday!
