|Brother, Ali, and Mike proved strong, friendly, and nice|
|Monika & Jeff were tremendous|
The trip back started interestingly as the trailer is clearly marked at a 55 miles per hour limit and NO ONE in Texas goes 55. It got even more crazy as we reached Dallas due to the fact that the Texas State Fair was in session on our approach to Dallas. For a small town fellow, this was more than exciting. We made it to their house in the North Dallas area and took a well deserved break. At 2:15 AM I awoke and sensed a storm moving into the area and decided to depart for Shelbina early. This early departure allowed me to miss most of the storm by fleeing to Oklahoma. You know, they drive just like Texans and everyone was flying past me again.
The 900 mile journey home went well and the storm never caught me. I constantly drove with one eye forward and the other eye on the rear view mirrors.Now, the last few feet had to be solved and once again friends came to the rescue. Asking Buddy Ratliff of Brown's Furniture got me a professional mover and his faithful sidekick Tonto from Brown's. Then Shelbina Lumber sent help and the big guns came from Center Street Auto.
