A Day with Jennifer

I spent the day hanging out and enjoying Jennifer's company. I gave her that pretty necklace of polished petrified wood for her birthday. She really likes it.

Meteors and Crystal Trees

Went from New Mexico to Arizona.

We then went to see the Petrified Forest and Painted Desert. It is amazing to see. The Painted Desert is naturally colorful.

The distinct white layers are sandstone. The caps of the Tepees (the hill looking objects) are made of clay. The dark layers are caused by high carbon content. Darker reds are iron-stained siltstone. Reddish bases are stained by iron oxide, which is also called hematite.

We also saw the crystal forest, which are petrified logs that have glassy amethyst and quartz crystals in them.

DD surprised me and bought me a piece of petrified wood from a store there. It is still wrapped up and I will see it when I get home. I bought a pretty necklace of polished petrified wood for my pretty girlfriend Jennifer. I hope she likes it.

We then went to see the Meteor Crater.

It is huge. But it is deceptive because it does not look like it until you see how big things are and then can see how big is really is. There is a 6 foot cutout of an astronaut at the bottom of the crater and you can barely see it. There is a rock about the size of a house

and it looks small since it is so far way.

We then drove straight to California

and then to my hometown.

Stuff Finally Here

The moving company had a brilliant idea. How about getting another truck to tow the stuff so they can unload it? Good idea huh. Well the moving company was so stupid because Adam suggested that idea to them 2 days ago. So a truck towed it, unhooked off the trailer and left. Now when they were done, they were still blocking the driveway so we still could not go until the movers got their truck, which was now fixed, to move it. It was 4p when they finally did and Adam came home from the new teacher orientation. It was so late that we would not get very far before having to get a hotel. So we stayed another night.

No Stuff

There stuff was supposed to be here today but instead their stuff is just 6 miles out of town. The moving truck broke down and spent all day waiting with Adam while JK was at a new teacher orientation. In the evening, I showed them a video of my spring concert with the choir and steel drums. Still was since hang out with AD and JK.

Moving in to the New House

AD and JK closed their new house and we finally got to put their stuff from the cars into their house. We waited for their refrigerator to be delivered. It finally arrived at about 4p. We then went out to get some house stuff like paper towels, a trash can and other similar stuff.

We are in Kansas

Today we got to see the new house AD and JK bought. It is a nice big place. On the main floor there are 3 bedrooms and a living room. In the basement, there is a big living room and 3 more bedrooms. The back yard is huge.

We then went to the college that AD will be teaching. We looked in the building and classrooms that he will be teaching in. It is a nice looking college. We then drove by where JK will be teaching and had dinner at the Golden Chorale. We then hung out in AD and JK's hotel room and I showed everyone the pictures of my travels the last 6 months and AD showed us the videos the took of his trips and snow pictures at his old house.

The Aw and Splendor of Wyoming

Got up and had free breakfast at the hotel. They had waffles and bagels. I had waffles and orange juice. Then started our way to Wyoming. When we got up this morning and until we got to Little America, Wyoming it was raining really hard. Salt Lake City had flooding and power outages. We left just in time.

We finally drove ahead of the rain and we finally got to see the aw and splendor of the natural wonders of Wyoming. We saw a lot of great mountains and rock formations.

One of them looked like a dessert with chocolate sauce running down sides of it.

We finally arrived in Cheyenne and stayed at a hotel there. We all hung out in my room talking until midnight.
