Whew. 300+ miles later, we just got checked in to our motel for the night. This will be the last stop before we head out for Souix Falls in the morning, and it’s going to be a very long day in the car, probably 10 hours. My body aches just thinking about it.
Today we’re visiting Gary, Terry’s best friend during his college years and best man at our wedding. After we got checked in, Gary came and picked Terry up. He’ll be back in an hour or so to get the rest of us. We all felt the need to stretch out for a few minutes before meeting Gary and his wife for supper at their place.
Renewing these old friendships has been very good for Terry. They’ve all enjoyed getting to know each other again, and reliving the “old days.” Even thought Ed and Betty and I don’t know these guys, we’ve had a great time, too. The conversations have been hilarious at times, and very enjoyable.
