Karen and Ellie let me out at mom’s house Saturday morning.  They delayed their departure for better weather.  Those girls aren’t trying to beat the Post Office.  Ellie got us from Austin to Round Rock via MoPac.  Karen took the wheel heading out of town.

When I drive, I tend to steer well east of Lubbock.  It’s too early for dinner and too late for lunch, and too tempting to stop early for dinner, making the next day a longer drive.

Coincidentally, when Karen drove it today, her map app took her through the middle of her college stompin’ grounds.  Go Tech.


Karen called me after reaching Amarillo to say they had a nice ride.  Ellie drove for ninety minutes.  They were planning dinner.  

The two are driving home for the new year.
