Becca and Allison's mom, FARM FRESH MURDER
Writing from the road - the girls' dad, Jason, and I currently live in a RV. It’s our goal to see as much of the country as possible before we move on to the next realm, which we hope won’t be any time soon.
We haven’t been back to South Carolina in some time, and though we miss our family, we are having some grand adventures; many of which we don’t tell our girls about because they would worry way too much.
We were forced to ‘fess up to some of the details of our latest adventure, though. Unfortunately, we lost the cell phone they insisted we carry. Between you and me, I didn’t much like it anyway and I frequently forgot to turn it on, but I understand why they wanted us to have it.
Anyway,we were leaving Sedona, Arizona where we had our chakras evaluated and aligned when we decided to head out to the desert to see if we could create a natural sauna of sorts, so we could meditate and sweat – both very good for the body and soul. We stopped at the most amazing spot and were distracted by ruins where ancient peoples made their homes right in cliff sides. We decided to climb of the walls so we could study some of the higher-up and fascinating rock art.
Before we knew it, we were on top of the cliff. I asked Jason to hand me the cell phone so I could call Becca or Allison and tell them about our amazing view of the world: the red dirt, the cacti, some desert wildflowers; it was beautiful. Somehow, in the hand-off, we both lost hold of the phone and it flew out of our hands and down the rocky cliff-side, breaking into bits at it dropped and bounced. I never knew a cell phone had so many parts.
It took us some time to get ourselves down; going up had been much easier. Later that day we stopped at an Internet café (that had some amazing Chamomile tea) and emailed Becca and Allison about the phone.
We decided not to tell them the part about Jason spraining his ankle and our brief visit to the emergency room. There are just some things they don’t need to know.
We’re off to the Grand Canyon now and certain we won’t be climbing much of anything, but we will enjoy the views!
Sending everyone our best wishes for peace and happiness.
See you down the road.
