Roads Traveled with Linda L. Osmundson

You can purchase pumpkins from several different sources but the most family fun is to visit a Pumpkin Patch. You may have to drive some distance but the trip will be well worth it. Besides fields of pick-your-own pumpkins, farmers offer mazes, corn stalks, gourds, hayrides, and produce stands.

Traveling In Luxury – The First Day

Roads Traveled With Linda L. Osmundson

Denver’s predicted snow storm blew in that night and blanketed DIA causing flight delays the next morning. We might have, as the saying goes, “Missed the boat!” That said, I never let any of the 557 crew
