Today we stopped in Mississippi at the Stennis Space Center. This is a NASA test center where engines are test fired.

... settle again, ready for the next time.
We were on our way to Mobile in Alabama where I had located a garage, not too far off the highway, that would put two new tires on the front of Bree at, believe me, the very reasonable price of $400 each – fitted.
