We spent today driving across Missouri on I-70. Pretty boring, actually.

The trip should pick up tomorrow when we get to Kansas.

Sorry for the short narration and absence of pictures. There's just not much going on right now.

Tonight we are again camped in a Flying J truck stop.

June, I'm sorry this isn't an official sign. The official sign was on a bridge and there was no way to get a pic of it. Pat doing one of her fav things. Pat points out that it's not the eating, it's the opening of her mouth.

From Tigers Eye in CO:

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body.
Rather one should skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand, chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO, What a Ride!"

From Denise in IN:

Certified Rednecks Bubba and Homer were sitting in back of their trailers, shooting the breeze.

Bubba asked Homer, "If I snuck ovah to yore house while you wuz out fishin' an' I made love to yore wife, an' she got pregnant, would that make us kin?"

Homer scratched his head for a bit then said, "I don't think so, but it shore would make us even."
