  Home away from Home
As many of you know, I used to live in New Mexico. In fact, next to South Carolina, New Mexico is my favorite state. As I cross this beautiful state I feel like I have come home... but I can't help but compare it to Abbeville... I have the memory of the Square in Abbeville etched into my brain. The way it is decorated at Christmas... the quaint little shops on the square... the friendly people there that have made me feel so welcome since I moved there. Things here are different. The little towns have grown so much I hardly recognize them. Most of the people that I knew here have moved away... far away... to Idaho, Montana or Michigan. I have wonderful memories from New Mexico... and one wonderful friend that still lives there... but I'm afraid that is all I have left... they say you can't go back... well, maybe they are right... I am back but it is not the same. It was a happy time for me here... but I have many happy memories in Abbeville. My sister and son are in S.C. Hmmm... they say that home is where the heart is... I guess that means that South Carolina is my home... with my son and his family, with my sister, with my grandchildren and with my friends. I reckon I am an ex-New Mexican and am now a South Carolinian... and proud to be one, at that. Oh, by the way, it looks like I will be bringing home a momento from New Mexico... a gift from one of my very dearest friends... His name is Splash and you will have to guess what he is... or wait to see. He is sweet and beautiful and I fell in love at first sight.... Now, I will have a piece of my friend, Nancy, with me for many many years... Love to all.... I miss you... Andi

OKAY, ANDI..... BON JOVI...... SAYS YOU CAN GO BACK

Who Says You Can't Go Home

I spent 20 years trying to get out of this place
I was looking for something I couldn't replace
I was running away from the only thing I've ever known
Like a blind dog without a bone
I was a gypsy lost in the twilight zone
I hijacked a rainbow and crashed into a pot of gold
I been there, done that and I ain't lookin' back on the seeds I've sown,
Saving dimes, spending too much time on the telephone
Who says you can't go home

[Chorus]
Who says you can't go home
There's only one place they call me one of their own
Just a hometown boy, born a rolling stone, who says you can't go home
Who says you can't go back, been all around the world and as a matter of fact
There's only one place left I want to go, who says you can't go home
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright, its alright

I went as far as I could, I tried to find a new face
There isn't one of these lines that I would erase
I lived a million miles of memories on that road
With every step I take I know that I'm not alone
You take the home from the boy, but not the boy from his home
These are my streets, the only life I've ever known,
who says you can't go home

[Chorus]

I been there, done that and I ain't looking that
It's been a long long road
Feels like I never left, that's how the story goes

It doesn't matter where you are, it doesn't matter where you go
If it's a million miles aways or just a mile up the road
Take it in, take it with you when you go,
who says you can't go home

[Chorus]

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright, its alright
Who says you can't go home
 
OK, GIRLS IN THIS YOU CAN COME HOME........TO ABBEVILLE SC THAT IS,SO TAKE IT ALL IN

It doesn't matter where you are, it doesn't matter where you go
If it's a million miles aways or just a mile up the road
Take it in, take it with you when you go

SAFE TRAVEL
ABBEVILLE SC
 
Andi - we understand you got to SC as soon as you could, and so glad you did!
 
Andi I do beleave it is a puppy (German) Huh.
 
Dear Trekkers,

We got home from Rocky Point after a 2 week beach fix to find you were then approaching Magdellena. You may have to wait awhile brfore entering Texas unless the ponies know how to tread water.
Bill and June told us that they were also up to date on following your blog.
Record heat here so glad you rode outta AZ before it really hit. Brutal riding in the PM.
So relieved that Whiskey escaped serious harm when he got cast in the corral.
We are praying for your safe passage as you prepare to leave the Land of Enchantment and enter the floods.
Love to all 4 of you intrepid riders,

Milt & Gail
