Day 1- Thursday, April 09, 2009

We left home this morning at 8 AM, stopped about 2.5 miles away at the local gas station and filled up, and continued down the road about 15 miles. The sun was glaring in my eyes so I started looking for my sunglasses in my purse?no purse. So we made our first U turn to go back home and get my purse.

We are traveling country roads and staying off the big Interstates. It was a bright sunny day, however cold. We drove with the top up to Auburn. It was a beautiful drive with several ponds and tree lined vistas along the way.

We arrived at our first gas stop and Mike noticed the banner for the back of our car had ripped a tie loose. After searching for our sewing kit that is always in the car, Mike decided he must have taken it out. I called Karen & Ray Parker, who bought some needles and thread with them when they met us for lunch.

As we drove through Auburn on the way to lunch, we saw Greg Frownfelter. He turned around and followed us to the Town Tavern. We talked to him for a few minutes and then had lunch with Karen & Ray. After lunch, we drove back to the museum and were greeted by a reporter from the Evening Star, Beth from the ACD Festival, and Troy and Carrie Ackerman and their son. Before we left, we went into the museum and said Good-bye to Joey Aiken, Jon Bill and Laura Brinkman.

We put the top down and continued southwest to Kokomo for the night. We arrived around 5 PM, cold and tired. We are staying at the Comfort Inn ? Free. (hotel card)

Hi All, There has been a slight glitch in our trip. No problem with the car but with the passenger. About 45 min. after Joan's post she got some abdominal pains. After consulting with our son, the family Dr., we went to the emergency room in Kokomo. She spent the night and today she is devoid of her appendix and gal bladder. The surgery was today at 1:00PM. She is resting comfortably and will be released tomorrow. The Dr. said if she feels up to it we could continue with our trip. That will be her call tomorrow. I hope we can still make the OK. Meet.
CORDially Mike
