The Tumbleweeds at Home..For a While

Lost in Space

Our life on the road has come to a temporary stop. We are home in snowy Wyoming until January. Himself is recuperating from a planned surgery and it will take that long to get back to his Tumbleweed self. He is doing well, just had a few bones cut out and his legs realigned. (Easy for me to say!!) 

Who knew driving a truck would make you bow-legged?

So now I face a dilemma. I don't know what to write about. I have no fresh stories of crazy people in laundry rooms or walking around New Orleans in the summer getting yelled at by the Green Lantern movie people.

I am assuming that yall stop by here to see a glimpse of what life on the road is like. Or maybe it's just my mom that reads this and she has to tell me it's interesting, she's a mother, it's a rule. So, I am trying to figure out the best way not to bore anyone to death with the day to day minutia of having cabin fever in a small town.

I have an idea of tying in stories from "The Book of Animal Ignorance, Everything You Think You Know is Wrong" to the trucking life, sorta like the prostituting penguin post.

So, if any of you have a request or ideas, let me know. I can only torture Himself for so long before he hits me with his crutches.


  1. I like your idea. I love getting factual and little known data from a personal prespective. My brain is like a sponge (I really worry it might be)and likes nothing better than sucking up and storing obscure facts that cannot be disputed by the average person without using The Google (I got that from Stacey who got it from George Bush, though she has recently taken to attributing it's origin to herself). On the other hand, I'm sure Himself is doing many interesting things while his body is recovering from having itself reassembled. I know for a fact that your dear mother, my best friend, likes nothing more than exchanging surgery details. Please don't tell her I said this, but sometimes that's ALL she wants to talk about. She even considers it a point of pride that very few people have racked up as many surgeries and let's not even venture into hospital stays.

    As Ever,

  2. hmmmm...what can i say? 'welcome home' doesn't sound right when 'himself' is home to have surgery...caused by the very thing you 2 do everyday...!!!'ll think of details, picture of you dodging from the crutches...

    past excerpts from the road...
    blahblahblah...whatever u decide...we be here listening!


Do what?
