Jeff and I completed the first leg of our cross country road trip to scatter Dad’s ashes last night. We arrived in Las Vegas just after 11:00 p.m. We played a little blackjack in the casino with my cousin Harry and his wife Kim. Harry is evidently a regular and was able to get us a room with his points, which was awesome because Jeff can’t sleep in a house where a cat has been.
Today we have breakfast with my uncle Harry and will begin the process of scattering ashes. Driving cross-country with Dad is a strong memory for me. I am actually a little surprise not to feel more sentimental yet. But, I think that is where I am these days. There is not much rhyme or reason to when I am moved by his memory.
Okay, time to start Day 2.
