Okay, I know I skipped yesterday, but once you read this you will understand why. We left Weatherford yesterday morning about 9:30 and proceeded west before we could turn south. We decided to take 281South instead of dealing with I-35, but first we had to go west on I-20 for about five miles.

When Lynne finished her calls for the day, we went for lunch at the "good" fast food place, Chick-fil-a, which served only chicken stuff and was actually far far better than mcdonalds etc!
