Got a message last week that there was sick pup in Indiana that needed a ride to Minne for some TLC and possible surgery. I told them I was swamped all week, but could do it on Sunday. Everything lined up, and I could have lunch with Mom in South Bend to boot!

Got out just after sunrise, tower said I got the coveted first customer of the day award!

Strange winds from the southeast down low, so I hatched a plan to go to 13,500 where they were less awful. Here is the Mississippi from way up there....

Turned over 1950 on the Hobbs as the wheels touched down. I dropped the oil and headed home to see Andi and have dinner.

Good weather, lunch with mom, 5.5 in the RV, and helped a pup. Nice day, you betcha!!
