We had a long way to drive today, about 345 miles, from Breaux Bridge LA to Victoria TX so we set the alarm and got up early to start getting ready to go. Stella had done some of her inside work and I had gathered up most of the outside stuff so it was easy to get packed. After hugs and handshakes, we pulled out about 8:30 which was even earlier than we had planned. Whatever it took, I'm proud of us.
It started to rain around Lake Charles and it rained off and on all the way to Beaumont. We made very good time and even though we made three pit stops, including one long stop at the Buccee's store in Wharton where we took the doggies out and took a nice break, we made it here to Victoria about 3:30. We had expected to be here between 4 and 5, but this way we got to see the entire Houston football game (congratulations to the Texans) and are watching the New Orleans-Detroit game as I write.
Tomorrow we are meeting with Bill Heede, who wants to go to my dentist for some work. He is going to follow us down to Mission where he will stay until his work is completed.
We are hosting and participating in some more Heartland events in the valley next month as well as finishing up my dental work as soon as I can get an appointment with the doctor. It will be a big relief to get it done. I'll keep you posted, so stay tuned.
