the sound of tin cans dragging

It started almost 11 years ago on the "Grinder"! I had just finished Navy boot camp in Chicago and and was heading to Biloxi Mississippi for school. That's when I got down on bended knee and asked Kelly to marry me. Many years later and a fresh new start we completed what I started all that time ago! On Monday Kelly and I went to the Breckenridge court house and officially got hitched. It wasn't nearly as painful as they say! After sealing the deal they gave us wonderful parting wishes and a sweet little gift!

For those of you who asked for a mailing address for letters or cards (or large sums of money) here it is!

As for other updates...Me and the RV arrived in Denver Wednesday morning and Kelly followed shortly that evening. We headed up to see my parents and do some laundry as well as take a shower in a real bathroom, not some rec center! Ah, it's the little things that count the most! We will start the Solar Panel install sometime next week as well as get my license in South Dakota! Everything is still on track and we have decide to head to Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo Texas to enjoy a few days before the Veggie Conversion. Keep watching for more stories and pics. We really don't know what's next!

Free To Highest Bidder - Picture of Josh in Navy Dress Whites and on bended knee in front of the Bus proposing to Kelly! Not a day went by for those nearly 12 years that everytime Josh said, "Guess what Mom?" I'd say...You're marrying Kelly. We couldn't be happier - Congratulations to ya both!
We Love You,
Mom & Dad
