We ended our wonderful trip today. We went out for breakfast with Pam and Gene, out of necessity! They had no food in the house! We went to a nice little ‘hole-in-the-wall’ restaurant owned by local folks. The food was plentiful and delicious!
We said our goodbye’s but Gene wasn’t finished yet. He led us all the way to our highway so we wouldn’t get confused. He’s great that way. When Jerry checked the gas tank so we could stop and get filled up…we were already filled up!!! When we stopped at a rest stop we noticed the car was nice and clean! It was covered, literally covered with bugs!, but now it was shiny and clean! Gene and Matthew had taken it the evening before, filled it with gas and washed it, scrubbed it clean!!! We were tired and didn’t notice until we were at a rest stop!!! That’s Gene…he’s great that way!
We called Ted (son) to ask about eating lunch with him. It’s a three hour drive from Pam’s house in Chicago and a three hour drive from Ted’s house to our house! So yes, he’d love to meet us. We met at Bob Evans and had a good lunch and a great visit.
Then once again we headed for home. Home. Home is so good!
