Summer Late, Summer Early (Sum just show up!)

In typical “Tubhead” fashion we are way overdue with an update.
In our defense (or excuse) this winter zipped by so fast our zipper got caught in a fold of circumstance and by the time we got it loose, we were out of it.  Time, that is.  Seems it’s cut on the bias, who knew?

Judy, having taken a position (as she is prone to do when it’s time for a stand) as Girls Dean at Spring Vale Academy (a Christian boarding school in Michigan) was completely occupied with learning the ropes (no tying up of girls is allowed btw). 
Meanwhile, Whitt worked on getting “The Mighty Creampuff” (that’s our van, not our driver) roadworthy again, among other chores and projects.

We are now just about a week away from lovingly patting the road (we would never hit it!) for June and July and are trying to get our travel legs back under us.  Remind us again: how do you fit the basic accoutrements of life into a van and just forget about everything else and drive away?
After the first week of “Rats! I left that on the counter!” we’ll no doubt settle in nicely, since we traveled for five years straight before
landing here.

Judy loved working with the young ladies at Spring Vale and intends to do it again this coming school year!
Whitt has more than enough to keep him busy and has some exciting new Washtub Two projects he’ll unveil in the fall.

We’re headed to Kansas City, Branson, Hot Springs, Little Rock, and then Nashville to visit our baby daughter. Then we head home through Louisville, Indianapolis, & Ft. Wayne, and finally back to anchor in Michigan.  We’ll try to make regular entries with photos so you can see what we are up to.  Won’t that be exciting?

Don’t forget, we love to hear from you.  Even though we make new friends wherever we go, we still miss the “old” ones and the good times we shared.

Hope to see you out there!

  1. Happy trails, troubadours!
    May the road rise up to meet you, just so long as it doesn't smack you in the grill, and the wind be at your back, except on bean night. May your voices and strings be strong and unbreakable as, hopefully, your van. And most of all, may the citizenry of your select cities be fortunate enough to sample your satirical songs and sweet humor. With the McKinney Washtub Two, enjoyment is definitely in the ear of the beholder.
