Instead of having the birthday party in January, we talked mom into just having cake and ice cream at her home for the 94th birthday. She wasn't happy about skipping the birthday dinner in January, but gave in. I took a couple of angel food cakes and Janell did a chocolate one. Margene made cupcakes, thinking the kids would like that. Well, when we got all done and everyone but Margene and Janell had gone home, mom came out to the kitchen and asked, "Could I have some cake and ice cream?". We had totally forgotten to take her some...talk about jerks!

The next day we drove into Colorado, over to Monticello for lunch, then towards Moab....where we ran into a road stoppage due to a semi catching on fire. Sat there for over an hour, and then finished driving home....great trip.

I was surprised to read that the cactus that has arms, is 90-100 years old before it ever grows an arm. And, they live for a very long time...We went through several check points for illegal immigration. I guess even though we had a pickup with a cover, we didn't look suspicious...never was stopped at all.
