I did spend the last couple of hours catching up on everybody's latest posts. I only made a couple of comments, but did read them all. So now I'm up to date again.
Blew out of here at 0730 Friday Morning with my son and grandson and headed down state to my brothers place in Long Beach. About an 8 hour drive when you take into account the bumper to bumper traffic on the 405 freeway that crosses from the San Fernando Valley to the off ramp where my brother lives. That was about an hour and a half of the traveling time. Got to his house around 3:15 pm and he got home from work (have I mentioned that my brother is a judge on the Superior Court of the County of Los Angeles? I call him "The Law Biggie") 15 minutes later. The timing couldn't have been better. Ken and I transferred our gear to the back of Mike's truck and that's where I met his tow hitch. I met it just to the left and below the knee of my right leg. Put a knot on my leg the size of a Major League baseball. Oh, wait, there's more to come.
