Gail is way ahead of me.  Gail and her parents, Bob and Virginia have kept me in stitches since they picked me up at the Denver airport.  We got to the hotel and almost right away the QOV’ers from Boulder came to deliver their QOVs.  I loved talking to them and hearing their stories.  We had a small show and tell out in the parking lot.

Then we headed to Nebraska.  But you should have seen us in the truck.  Gail and Bob were in the front and Virginia and I in the back.  We had a GPS that refused to tell us the correct time and also balked at giving us correct driving directions.  Phones were ringing off the hook. Gail and I gave an interview to the Omaha Herald newspaper. In her quiet way Virginia said, “look at the beautiful blue sky”.  I stopped what I was doing and actually looked out the window to  see what she was talking about.

The sky was a beautiful blue and clouds were as soft and billowy as ever.  Don’t relax here becuz we then had to pay attention to the Colorado/Nebraska state line.  I received explicit instructions from my film crew that I was to film us going through pivotal points in the journey.  Translation:  I get out of the truck with video camera.  Truck and trailer are to pass me by while I film.  What I discovered is that crocks and the high grass by the interstate don’t make for easy walking/running.

Anyway, we filmed us going from Colorado to Nebraska.   I only had to run a short distance to catch up with Bob and crew!

Later we stopped in Brady to eat.  I loved this little town.  It reminded me of many small Delaware towns.  Here is their menu and a pix of our truck in front of the Hitchin’ Post Saloon.  After that we drove to Lexington where we are now.

That’s it for now!  Catherine
