Smiles and Miles


The missing states were Missouri, Kansas, and Oklahoma. I spent last night in Kansas with our former pastors Al and Beth Verhagen (and daughter Sloane).


Then I headed south into Tulsa, Oklahoma, where I met Mike and Tina Funkhouser. Can you see what they are standing next to?


We had to do a little bit of paperwork.

And a little bit of mechanical stuff.

Then I drove for a couple of hours, some of it slowly to get used to my little Companion. Reached today's destination just at sunset.

And what is that destination? I finally got to re-meet my cousin Jean


We haven't stopped talking for hours! It's been 51 years since we've seen each other and there was a lot of catching up to do. We suspected there were still going to be good connections between us, and we were right!

And, she showed me where she works. She's a Fleet Manager for Con-way Truckload.


I'd like to stay longer, but have to continue home tomorrow. I think we'll be planning to meet again before another 51 years, though.

That is one neat little caravan we have small ones over here but that looks just perfect.
