We went through a lot of country that looked like this:

Isn't our adopted home state beautiful? Speaking of beautiful -- check this out:
We thought it looked like snow clouds ahead! Sadly, they weren't -- or at least the snow never made it to the ground.

Mom and Dad saw all kinds of wonderful birdies! Mom hasn't even started processing her photos - I just took the ones off her iPhone for today's post. I mean, she GAVE them to me, it's not like I took them.
Speaking of giving things to me, at one of our rest-stops, Mom and Dad had sandwiches.
|"Look into my eyes ..."|
Correction - we ALL had sandwiches! Plus, Maggie and I had treats and water!
On the way home, we saw a little "fun with hay bales" in a farmer's field:

Maybe it's just me, but I would change their sign to "Hay, Merry Christmas". Wouldn't you? Ha roo woo roo!

Well, Mom thought it was funny.
Anyway, that's our big New Year's Day adventure! We'll let you know when Mom's birdie pix are up!
