Wow.

Whirlwind.

1. anything resembling a whirlwind, as in violent action or destructive force.
2. any circling rush or violent onward course.
3. Monday, July 28th for Rhys and Indi Martin.

What a day! Indi goes to work this morning (which was a rush in and of itself) and I slept in. That was nice. I got up, got ready for work…and sat around for a few minutes. Nothing spectacular. Just before going to work, I decide to post our house rental info on Craig’s List. I post and scoot to work.

When I arrived at work (about 2:30) I see that I’ve missed three calls. Two unknowns and my brother. I call my bro first. Turns out he won a vacation and, since he isn’t 25, cannot take it. So he gave it to us! Indi and I get a three-day two-night vacation to either Vegas or Orlando. We get more details tomorrow. That’s AWESOME!

My other two calls, plus a third that goes to voicemail when I’m talking to Tyler, were in regards to my house rental. I contact them, give info, and two groups of folks come out to look at the house. Indi, thank goodness, is available for a brief tour. A family relocating from Nevada provided a deposit and is moving in on Sunday.

zomg. We still have tons of Estate Sale stuff there that needs disposal. And cleaning. And lawn work. All by the end of the week.

I’m feeling pretty darn blessed right now.

About rhysfunk

Rhys Martin was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1981. In 2009, he sold everything he owned and left the country, living out of a backpack for ten months. He discovered a passion for photography while traveling throughout Southeast Asia and Europe. After returning home, he looked at his home town and Oklahoma heritage with fresh eyes. When he began to explore his home state, Rhys turned his attention to historic Route 66. As he became familiar with the iconic highway, he began to truly appreciate Oklahoma’s place along the Mother Road. He has traveled all 2,400 miles of Route 66, from Chicago to Los Angeles. He has also driven many miles on rural Oklahoma highways to explore the fading Main Streets of our small towns. Rhys has a desire to find and share the unique qualities of the Sooner State with the rest of the world. Cloudless Lens Photography has been featured in several publications including This Land, Route 66 Magazine, Nimrod Journal, Inbound Asia Magazine, The Oklahoman, and the Tulsa World. Rhys loves to connect with people and share his experiences; ask him about enjoyable day trips from Tulsa, locations along Route 66, and good diners or burger joints along the way.

    not to be a downer but that ‘free’ trip doesn’t include the tax. y’all will be paying for that.

    Oh, yeah. 😦 We decided not to go – it turns out it’s really only one day (The other two are both travel days) and it would end up being like 300 bucks. We would much rather travel around the world for a few years, and saving that money will help. 🙂
