Another travel day, not quite as long as some but still tiring. Instead of seeing mountains off in the distance, they were on either side of us (and off in the distance, too). Rocks and sand and what looked like weeds for miles and miles along Interstate-10. It sure was nice to see green grass again once we got to California and back to civilization!
Update: Jim did get the car repaired yesterday — it needed new brakes and rotors. We are so thankful that he was able to get into the dealer and have it done. He didn’t feel safe with the brakes the way they were, especially on steep, winding mountain roads. Then today the control arm came off his wheelchair! Thank goodness that was a repair that he could do himself.
We checked into the Holiday Inn Express in Colton, CA where we are staying for nine days. There are three stadiums in Southern California so we are using this as a home base; Los Angeles Dodgers tomorrow, San Diego Padres on Friday, and Los Angeles (Anaheim) Angels on Sunday. We hope to do a little sightseeing on our off days and before we head to Fresno.
Today we have something completely new and different to share with you. Our oldest son, Jimmy, is starting an online tee-shirt business.
Baseball Diamonds! This is one of the shirts he has to offer. I don’t think his website is up and running yet. But if you would like a tee shirt with this design on it just let me know OR contact him directly.
