On the way there we laughed.  We breathed sighs of relief.  We looked out the window and listened to music.  We passed lots of cows and fields and then eventually more trees and hills and some lakes.  We talked about Warner Bros. cartoons and how Pepe le Pew was in love with a cat who always ALWAYS had a white stripe accidentally painted on her.  Hardy har.  We held hands and sang.  We talked about the last 10 years.  I said (and this shall go down in the history books)  "only in Texas can you drive 9 hours and still be in Texas."


Part II tomorrow.
