Saturday was both a relaxing and a stressful day. Lynne's bike would not start Friday night and a lady passing by said that her cousin owned a repair shop and might be able to help. Her cousin Chris drove to Beaumont, TX to pick up a part to repair her bike and get her back on the road. The bike was repaired and delivered by about 3 pm and by 4 pm, we were driving around Lakeshore Blvd admiring all their extensive ...

Long road trip tomorrow, will be gone by daybreak. Next stop, Roswell, New Mexico! Will be on the lookout for aliens!!! Thanks for ...
... on Booker (she was being too quiet)...and there she was, holding every dollar of our accumulated cash in her little hands WITH THE WINDOWS WIDE OPEN! I very calmly (so as not to startle her) asked her if she thought it was a good idea to be playing with the money with the windows down.
