Today we drove out to Perkins to visit Uncle Bud and Aunt Margaret. Dad had told me what sounded like a horror story - Bud had gone in to the doctor with some health problems, and they had put him on a treadmill and worked him until his heart stopped, and then they gave him a bypass operation! But we were amazed to see the improvement in his condition... he looks and acts at least five years younger than when I saw him last December. He and Margaret are both 80.
On the way back we checked out some roads I might travel on my way south. We also found some I'll be sure to avoid!
