    Had to change out the ignition switch the other day. I went out, put in the key, and the switch just fell apart and fell to the floor! I changed the switch out, but still would not work with the key. I took it apart and found all the tumblers were in the switch. I got a cylinder and key, replaced it and we are off to the races. See everybody Wednesday!

    First traffic jam, just coming into Memphis took an hour to go 2 miles, glad we had a big truck beside us to shade us from the sun. Didnt help any when Effie sent us a picture of her and Frank saying they we stuck also------ sitting at the motel on the swinging chair. Tired of driving but we are on a few miles east of Memphis just have about 380 miles to go then we can sit on the swinging chair not that sitting is high on my list of things to do but at least I wont have to drive.

    Finally made it home, about 1 mile away from home looked in the mirror and noticed smoke coming off of the right rear wheel so I just gassed it and and it into the driveway and got close to the hose in case of fire, note to self put fire extinguisher in tool box. Either a wheel bearing or brake hung up glad it waited to do it then instead of on the 8% down grades we encountered earlier in the day, someone must have been looking out for us.

    Right around 6,000 miles round trip. Took a lot of back roads on the way home and saw some beautiful sights in Colorado, Utah and Kansas

    :Welcome:...home Ya'll...:Handshake:
    Cindy has been keeping Effie and I updated (with pics) .
    those " back roads" had some pretty scenery...:wow:
    Tell Cindy that Effie could have used one of her Afghans she knits on the way home...LOL
    come to think of it, if Effie could knit she could have knitted herself one on the way up to have used on the way home...:yup: (maybe Cindy could hold a knitting class next year and teach Effie how to knit.)...:huh:
    Frank, Effie and Patches...:outtahere:

    Lol...that's a nice thought. The bad part is that I AM retired! I retired from the FD in 2007...and somehow got entangled in what I do now lol.
