Re: "We haven't disappeared; We're just traveling."

Had a dark foggy rainy drive from Bastrop to Wichita Falls yesterday. Spending today with our older daughter and her husband. Saw their temporary apartment last night and will see their "new" house today. It is undergoing renovations currently.

Drive home tomorrow like so many others. :?
