Happy Birthday to my brother Ernie!
Lou arrived back in Bakersfield. She has completed her retirement paperwork and can now join me as one of the idle poor. Our current, current plan is to take some short trips here in the west, within a couple of days return trip to home. We'll have to enjoy the fall colors here this year. If we headed east, we'd arrive at least half way through the best fall color viewing period, even if we raced there. Racing isn't part of our travel plan. We might get to Texas in the Fall to see Lou's sister.
