Texas on My Mind

Looks like I’ll be heading for Texas around the middle of October. That’s when my daughter is due to have her first child. My first grandchild.

My ex-wife and I plan to drive out together in her new car.

That probably sounds like hell on wheels to some of you, maybe most of you, but my ex and I get along fine. Better now that when we were married. There just wasn’t room enough in the connubial box for our very different lifestyles. Now she has her box and I have mine.

Our daughter’s husband is stationed at Laughlin Air Force Base, outside of Del Rio. They’ve bought air mattresses and bed frames for us and figured out where everything will go. And they have a couple of computers so both my ex and I can get our cyber fixes.

Way back when in the late fall of 1976 I drove a pickup truck with a camper on it out to California from Illinois. I drove through Texas on Interstate 10 heading for San Diego. Almost froze my butt in El Paso.

I’ve been through the Texas panhandle a few times since, heading east, or returning home, along Interstate 40.

We plan to stay about two weeks. Should be an experience.
