Was It The 13’th?
Friday morning got off to a great start. Wanda and I had spent most of Thursday cruising around parts of Big Bend NP. Took a few pictures, a couple of short hikes, and managed to lose the only cap I had with me that day. Not sure how I lost it, just realized it wasn’t in the truck when I reached for it.
Back to Friday. I had my shower, and I was walking Sally around, drinking a cup of coffee, and visiting with friends in the campground. When I went back to the Casita for a refill, the news awaited me. The dreaded phone call. Wanda says, mom’s back in hospital, situation seems critical.
Needless to say, everything was loaded and we were on the road by 10 AM. Stopped for a restless few hours in a rest area between Anahuac and Beaumont on I-10. Arrived home around noon today. Wanda’s in Jackson. I’m sitting here mully-grubbing. Seems all our plans for the next few weeks won’t work out.
Oh, the good news. Received a message from friends in Lajita’s. Someone found my cap in Big Bend, and it somehow made its way back to the RV park. Too bad I wasn’t there to hear the story of its journey……
