For 30 years we bred and raised llamas on our small farm. They are gentle, smart, regal animals. They make a soft humming sound that is soothing to the soul. They can be aloof or when the moods strikes, they can be friendly and affectionate. Our last 3 geriatric animals died the year we started cruising, and we have missed them. So it seemed appropriate to welcome Mr. Wiffles on board. He doesn’t take up much space, he never complains, he loves to go everywhere and see everything. He makes me smile and remember the many llamas that were a part of our lives over the course of 30 years. He will be a silent partner in this blog. Keep your eyes open for him.

They say that a straight line is the shortest distance between two points. But not necessarily the most fun. This year we headed south by going east to Ann Arbor where Jeremy and family moved this summer. It was only 4 hours longer, took us through some beautiful fall colors and though short, was a fun visit.
