Is there anything better then coming home? Yes, there is but coming home is in the top 10 I'm sure.
The road was good today. No ice, no rain and no snow. It was cool pretty much the whole day but it did get warm enough that by noon-ish I had shed all the ice that had built up on the truck.
I left Beatrice Nebraska by 8am. I must have been beat as I did not get up till 7am. I stayed on Hwy 136 till I got to Bethany Missouri. I got gas ( for the truck, not me ) in a town called Maryville in MO. After a few hours of driving I noticed that my truck engine was slipping? hick-upping? It was acting up. I was worried that I might be having a transmission problem. I could feel in my foot that was on the gas peddle. I started to think about what I might have to do if the engine conked out on me. Worse case was to leave in on the side of I-35 and get a tow truck and tow it to a garage and start paying out the nose to get it fixed. It started getting worse and I was also getting low on gas. The lower I got on gas, the worse the problem became.....AH HA! I started to think that maybe I just got bad gas. I got more gas and the problem started to go away. After about 2 hours driving with new gas the truck ran fine.
I might have to do a road trip now to MO. That sure was some pretty back roads that I was on. I also have a nephew and niece in-law that live in Central MO and also my sister Patty has a slew of in laws that live in MO.
When I got home I was shocked, shocked I tell you at how big the kittens have gotten. Also they are so brave now. When I left they would not get of the steps, now they run right out and into the garden bed and under the truck ( Hum, under the truck....thinking...thinking....naaa, I wouldn't do that! I love the kittens.)
The goats seemed happy to see me or more like the armful of hay I had for them. I will hang with them tomorrow.
When I came home Abby went right to her water dish, drank a lot of water and then gave me a "gift" that I had to clean up. Nothing like warm vomit, but hey, bright side, it was mostly water!
