NOT GONE TO TEXAS

I can't figure out how to add pictures to this post that I'm sending from my IPhone. Our transmission went out as we were leaving Pensacola FL. Our computer also quit. After the truck was fixed,we left FL. When we got to Vicksburg, MS, the transmission went out again (Friday PM). So we are stranded at an RV park. The good thing is that I have gotten a lot of sewing done. I finished the Gone To Texas top. Hand quilted a small quilt. Pieced 53 log cabin blocks. I don't know when we will be able to go home. Thank goodness I have my sewing machine with me!!

Oh, my, you have sure had some bad luck. I hope things look up for you right away. I agree - good thing you have sewing to do.

Sorry to hear of your travel problems. That can be so frustrating. I'm glad to hear you have your sewing to keep you busy. It sounds like you are getting a lot of stitching done. I'm hoping the truck gets fixed and the rest of the trip home is a breese!

Yikes! When it rains, it pours, right? I hope you get the truck fixed (for real this time) and make it home safely soon. But you're right - at least you have the sewing machine, so make the best of it!

That goodness you have your emergency supplies!! LOL

I am pretty sure a transmission is supposed to last longer then the one you had replaced!

What a streak of bad luck. But you can be content anywhere, as long as you don't run out of fabric. Hope DH isn't chewing his nails. : )
Hope you can be on the road again soon.

Nothing more frustrating than car/truck troubles. Even worse when 'on the road'. Glad you have your sewing machine and some fabric to keep you busy.
Hope you on on the road home soon.

Hope your problems are fixed soon so you can be Gone to Texas! What a nightmare this trip has been, huh? Did I dream your husband was thinking about looking for a new truck??? *grin* ---"Love"

You poor thing!! Car (truck) engine trouble is always an unwelcome occurance. You just vindicated every quilter who packed way more projects than she ever thought she would need. You just never know when you will get delayed and it would be awful without our quilting.
