Thanks to my wonderful husband, we’re back on the road. The last of the parts arrived late in the day Friday so first thing Saturday, LeRoy was out putting things together. After replacing all the broken parts, he was ready for the radiator again. Gravity was not on his side putting that multi-hundred pound radiator back in its place, but he got it in! Refilling it with antifreeze was accomplished with a little pump and clear tubing and by 11:30, he had it all buttoned up (not leaking, either) and came in to clean up and eat lunch.
Since we retired, we’ve had a deal that I cook and he washes dishes. However, when he comes in and needs to take the Go-Jo hand cleaner into the shower to wash off the grease and muck, washing the dishes is the least I can do! His white hair had to be washed twice to get rid of the traces of grease where he came in contact with the bus.
We spent last night in Rogers, AR in the parking lot of Wal-Mart store #1 so that we could spend a few hours with old friends from West Memphis who have moved there to a retirement complex. It was great to see Pete and Pat Hampton in their new surroundings and know that they are close to their children again.
Today we came across Oklahoma to the Tulsa area and had lunch with our granddaughter Katrina. Ihop may never be the same! Love that girl to pieces!!
Since she had to go back to work this afternoon, we came on across to Ponca City where we spent the evening catching up with Terry and Linda Watson. We attended the same church with them when we lived in Tonkawa and loved to hear Linda sing. It was nice to see their little granddaughter Ella, too, as well as their son Chris.
Tomorrow we’re going to take another walk down memory lane and go to Tonkawa for a short visit. Hope we can find other friends at home! None of us is getting any younger and we need to make the most of every opportunity the Lord gives us.
