The Return Trip

The theme at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland certainly can sum up the theme of my life. What a long, strange trip it has been… and will no doubt continue to be, at least I hope it will so I don’t lose my sense of wonder at it all.
Sorry we couldn’t take pictures in the Hall of Fame but we did take a few shots around the area before we left town.

We left Cleveland Wednesday morning and headed south to Wright-Patterson Air base and the BIG Air and Space museum there – it was so huge I could not walk all the way through it in one pass. This museum is free to the public and should not be missed if you are ever near Dayton, Ohio. 
We spent that night in Cincinnati We Cincinnati, the next night in St Louis, Missouri.
We continued west each day –
– Tulsa, OK. Tucumcari and New Mexico weren’t really remarkable places except for the noisy pimp and hookers at the Tulsa Red Roof Inn (where the management there seemed intent on ignoring that sort of behavior) and the nice dinner at the “Pow Wow” in Tucumcari – until we got to Sedona Arizona where we stayed for one extra day.
Then we decided to sprint for home instead of taking one more night somewhere.
The End


  1. Glad to hear about your trip and happy you are safely back home.

  2. Eva-Genevieve! I love your life, darlin! I can't believe it's been almost 6 years now and you have taught me so much following your journey. There are a lot transgender folk in my world -- more so now that I'm at the Gentle Barn -- and while I would like to think I was never disrespectful to anyone, I think you really refined my skills as a friend. I loved your trip. I was there right along with you, cheering you on and praying for your time with your boys. I know that was a sad and sore spot in your life for over a decade and I am in awe of your courage. I wish you were here so I could give you a hug.

    XO, Sue

  3. I am glad to be home and thankful that we had no problems with people on the way. What a concept... No checkout time here! No rushed daily unpacking and packing the car. It took me a week before I wanted to leave my bedroom and I am still hesitant to go anywhere much. I am happy just to sit in one place and read.

    Suzy - Thanks. I guess it has been 6 years already (my how time flies). We need to plan for a day I can come to visit and claim that hug! It is a good feeling just knowing who my boys are now - I had no clue who they were and I am proud of both of my men. (can't really call them boys now that they are so tall and good looking).
