We have finally arrived in Colorado, after an eventful departure from Lakewood. We are barely 200 miles down the road, decided to stop for dinner, and noticed a strong 'paint' smell. Of course, it wasn't paint, but diesel. We pulled in to the parking lot at a mall, Henry took a look under the hood and discovered diesel spraying all over the outside of the engine block. He spent several minutes checking everything out, and determined we had a ruptured fuel line.
Long story short, we spent the night and most of the following day in a mall parking lot in Santa Fe. But....Henry fixed it himself (because he is so talented), it only cost $41.00, instead of over $300, as we were quoted, and we were back on the road to Colorado!
So, we had a wonderful dinner at my Mom and Dad's this evening. Mom had a Birthday dinner, complete with mashed potatoes (my all the time favorite 'in the world' food), cake and presents, too! It's good to see them, and I am so thankful they are looking well.
Henry leaves Monday for his training in California, and I will stay here for a few days of visiting with my folks.
BlackJack did fantastic on his first real 'road trip'. He seemed a bit confused the first night, but settled right in.
