Traveling to Boise Idaho
My son Rodmond took me on a road trip to Boise, Idaho to visit his brother my oldest son Walter and his family. It was a relaxing and fun trip. We stopped in M…… overnight and did some gambling. Rod showed me how to play poker on those gambling machines, so much fun. I lost $5.00 Rod only lost $2.00. The next morning after breakfast we took off for Boise.
Walter and Veronika were waiting for us, Jesse and Janine were in Church. Oh yes, we arrived in Boise on a Sunday. The first impression of their property and home was so unexpected. Beautifully landscaped and enclosed by high fences with a gate which makes it look like a little estate. Actually, the home sits on about 2 acres. Walter and Veronika added a huge master suite, a to die for bathroom which includes a tub with jets and a sauna. A Living room/music room also was added to the original 3 bedroom house.
After Rod cooked this great breakfast the next morning, Rod and I went sightseeing. Boise built a European style village with beautiful gardens and a big fountain which was music driven, the sprays went up and down by the tunes. We thought the music was a little loud. The stores and restaurants all had a European flair. We loved walking through it and sitting on one of the benches to relax. Flowers everywhere!

The time went by so fast and we were back on our way toward California. Rod decided we should drive all the way to my home in Healdsburg, it took us 11 hours, not bad. Rod stayed about two hours and left for his home in Sacramento. I am forever grateful that I got to go and see how my oldest son and family are doing. It was a wonderful relaxing and scenic trip.
Less than 18 hours later I got sick. I ate a yoghurt which was in the hot car for almost 8 hours and got a staff food poisoning infection, yikes, how to spoil the homecoming.
The Big Surprise:
After everyone left I had myself a good cry! The generosity of my children overwhelmed me and still does. I am forever grateful for my thoughtful children.
