MO to AZ – 4 states in 4 days

Leaving Missouri on Sunday we headed into Oklahoma. From there we went across the panhandle of Texas, staying in Amarillo on Monday night.

The turtles are not harmed but neither will they find their way... read more

Not earning much money and having a couple of different diagnosis pronounced over it, we all decided that the time... read more
