I left Del Rio in overcast skies with a light drizzle falling from time to time. This really worked to my advantage as I drove to the east as I didn't have to contend with the rising sun as I drove eastward. 351 miles later the trip was completed and I arrived at Vals Kountry Corral my new winter home. Thanks to Wally, who with his wife Star, run the place, my car started right up and was ready to go. I arrived in time to see the Cards win and a couple of football games. All my teams won so it was a doubly good day.
Resting today in the weekend mode I got to see the Cardinals win another one in the afternoon and then the Bronco's win in the evening, another good day. I also had time to calculate my summer mileage and with the trip to Hannibal I traveled 5355 miles this summer. More importantly were the things I was able to see and do. From train rides to Indian village ruins and history with a plus of touching base with several friends along the way. Another good summer.
A trip to the office this morning to sign my lease and leave a pot full of money for a years rent. The next order of business was to head for the car spa to have the topsoil removed from the Fiesta before the crop matured. This was followed by a stop at the dermatologist office to reschedule my appointment from mid October to this coming Friday. All this done it was time to stop by burger doodle for lunch. I then headed back to Mel to get myself out of the 99 degree heat and wait for the Cardinal game.
The Cardinals have moved to Cincinnati and game 1 was a win. we are currently 4.5 games ahead of the second place Pirates.
