My favorite expression is: Serendipitous Adventures Are The Best!
It's always fun to travel and see friends, but it's also fun to head home again.
We hitched up Little Blue, loaded in the dogs and left Oz heading up the Scenic Flint Hills. We were under doctor's orders to stop every hour to let Gman get out and walk around. We didn't want a clot to form or his star clip to start to bleed, so he had to lean his seat back and not sit straight up.
We were looking for a place to pull off with space for a nice walk. I spied a place with a large parking lot and exited the highway.
Gman was saying, where in the world are you going? I need to get out and walk.
Then, after I crossed the highway, he saw where I was headed too. Big parking lot with room for the Durango and camper to park easily.
We parked at Bass Pro Shop in Lenexa (I think, could have been Olathe) and got out to walk.
As I looked up at the building, what did I see????? NASCAR!!!!!
Have I mentioned that we love NASCAR????
Just in case you didn't know--we LOVE NASCAR!!!!
There was Jamie McMurry's Sprint Cup Car and the Austin Dillon #3 Truck. Yeowwwww!! I mean we are #88 Dale Jr. Fans, but who doesn't like #1 Jamie Mac? Huh? Really? Our Joplin boy!!!!
We hotfooted it down and checked the car all out inside and out.
We posed and took each other's pictures with the car.
We checked out the hauler.
We had a nice walk around and then started out again.
Then, I get a text message on my phone. It is a picture with the caption "Man, you barely left and there are already squatters!" Hmmmm...
I spy something pink and flamingo like! Somebody is having fun!
We arrived home and sure enough, the squatters were still there--making themselves at home!
There were also more squatters.
I mean, it sounded like a diesel engine--a bunch of diesel engines! They were everywhere! AND LOUD!!!!
They only come out every 13 years. And it was THIS YEAR! Lucky US!!!!
Look at the fence! The skeletons were hanging all over the place! They crunched when you walked on them or touched them. They clung to you and hitched a ride. Ick!
