Thought I’d better try and post something so you all know I’m still on the planet.....LOL!  I have been busy the last few days learning some music for my choral club.  I have been singing with this group for 15 years, but I had made the decision not to go back this year.  With us traveling the way we do, it was becoming increasingly difficult to “pick up where I left off” the past year.  This year, they sent out an SOS that I couldn’t ignore.  You see, every year all the choral clubs from around the state of Indiana come together for a day at Purdue University.  During the day, each group performs a “special number” for the other groups.  In the evening, we all come together to perform as a whole singing from a selection of songs we have all worked on through the year.  Well, it seems my choral club was short on sopranos this season.  They were struggling with their special number and asked if I could come back to help them out with this one number.  I had to say yes, but it was a challenge. I only had one rehearsal with the group and a total of about 5 days to memorizing music and words.  This past Wednesday was the big day.......and I managed to pull it off!  We had a great performance and it felt so good to be back with my friends.  There is also nothing like that adrenalin rush you get when you walk onto the stage....this is it folks, no turning back, whatever happens.......happens!  We did great!

I love this rving lifestyle, but their are sacrifices that have to be made.....those of you that rv fulltime know of what I speak.  It can be a difficult decision, but the rewards of this lifestyle are many!  I’m seeing and doing things that I would have never accomplished in my lifetime, if it were not for our fifth wheel.   I guess I’m just a ‘wonderer at heart’......there is so much beauty in these United States.  I have stood in awe and sometimes been moved to tears at the wonders I have seen......then their are the new friendships....the wonderful people we have gotten to know through our travels......and let’s not forget the romance.  Yes, I said romance.....we hold hands more, we kiss more, we cuddle more.......Well, you get the picture.........we don’t call it the “GoodeLife” for nothin.........
