I'm just checking in with J-landers from Fort Worth, where we spent the night. We met a couple who live nearby, some of my daughter's Internet friends from her Joke-a-day site. Nice folks, and they paid for our meals; the guy, David, said, "Welcome to Texas," when my daughter objected to his footing the bill.
Things went smoothly on the road yesterday: Rachel made sure there were plenty of activities for the kids, and they were well-behaved. It rained on us most of the way, and when I called Cliff to check in, I found out we're getting plenty of wet stuff at home, too.
If all goes as planned, we'll be at my sister's by suppertime tonight.
