We had not been home even a week when I found out that my only remaining uncle, who I think the world of was seriously ill in New York. His sister, my Aunt B lives in Iowa about 5 hours away so we decided to go to our hometown in upstate NY for a week. The fall colors were just beautiful. We spent much time at the hospital but I still managed to visit with my sisters and some high school friends. (and Uncle A is much recovered!)
Now Carlos still had several vacation days unscheduled and thousands of Southwest Air miles, not to mention Hertz Miles and Marriott points... so I looked around for a long weekend and we are now in Reno, Nevada! We have been here since Thursday and will return to St Louis tomorrow. What a good time we have been having! Yesterday we drove over the mountains to South Lake Tahoe and went to see rocker Leon Russell in concert at one of the casinos. For 70 years old he STILL has it!
The weather in Reno has been wonderful and it has been great to see some mountains as well as some snow!
Our next scheduled trip is for Merida on December 1! We are staying until January 4th! I'm so excited... and we may have friends and family joining us!
