May 26, 2014

I know this sounds too bad to be true, but for the third time in the last 21 months we are in Columbus attending Davis's knee surgery.  ACL repair tomorrow.  Report to check in at 5:00.

This time it's a little different.  I don't know if you have heard, but Walter and I have a new business partnership:  the Doggie Summer Camp and Orthopedic Rehab Service.  Davis and Lyndon are our first customers!

As soon as they are travel ready, we'll head back to Texas.

We have spent the last two days driving for the pick up!  I can tell it was about 21 hours in the car because I'm a bit stiff through the hips, shoulder, and neck.  

And, with apologies to Jeff Foxworthy, I can tell I drove through east Texas because I saw:

  • a bank advertising on a billboard with a picture of a ginormous chicken and the words "we delight in poultry financing."
  • a second billboard $895 CREMATION as the only words besides the company name.
I can tell I drove through Tennessee because there were more Cracker Barrels, Waffle Houses, and Shoneys than there were Starbucks.

Also, can anybody tell why Ohio farm houses are white and Ohio barns are red?

Final Thought:  I think people in Brazos County should pay me to go out of town.  When we went to Galveston week before last, it rained 5 inches in Bryan.  I understand that the rain started today at noon and has already rained a couple of inches with more expected tomorrow.


  1. :) You are 4 hours from me! Very cool :) Travel safe!! :)

  2. Hi Vickie-first time to visit Erin's blog spot. How cool. I have a Facebook account but haven't looked at it for years. Amber's doing well. After Jane Long she started 9th grade at A&M Consolidated (she hated the leave Bryan area) but she has finally adjusted and is now in the 11th grade. Love and Peace Carol Davis-Rios

  3. Safe travels and hope the surgery goes well.
