Well, I'm Out of Here

It’s funny what I remember and when I remember it. For example, whenever Nate would come over to visit or when we had wrapped up a round golf, just before he would leave he would look at me and say, “Well, I’m out of here”.

Last week he was over and his visit ended the same way. He looked at me and said, “Well, I’m out of here”. That’s when I took this picture. Early the next morning he left for the mid-west. Char and I are officially alone in Colorado.

Nate called a few times along the way to tell us some of the highlights.

** He got off at Kansas City to do some sightseeing. One thing he wanted to visit was a Barbeque restaurant. Several people told him it was the best BBQ in America but to be careful about going there as it was in a rough part of town and because of that the owner carries a gun. Of course, Nate had to go see it and take a picture.

** He stopped for lunch and a lady from his previous job called, they wanted to know how his trip was going. He was filling his cup up with ice and she asked what the noise was. He told her he was in the middle of a hailstorm. Evidently, she got all flustered and told him to hang up and concentrate on his driving.

** Somewhere he got bored so he stopped, propped a suitcase up in the passenger seat and put his hat on top of it so it looked like he had a passenger.

I asked Char where does he come up with this crap? She just gave me ‘the look’ and didn’t answer. I guess she doesn’t know either.

Kansas City, huh? Hmmm...I call it "The Big City." I was there today. I didn't see your boy. He musta gone to LC's BBQ, cuz it's in a pretty rough neighborhood. Course, not when everybody's eating LC's BBQ.

I must agree with Cliff on this one. Propping a suitcase up and putting a hat on it. . . Classic Ralph.

Once again you made me burst into laughter, but just like Char told me she does not have to read the book because she has already lived it! (Now I get it!) I was really worried that he was going to get in an accident threw that nasty hail storm @ the subway soda machine … Ha Ha
