Gas in Mexia is down today. People were excited. Cars lined up 2 deep (not bad) to get some "cheap" fuel. The guy next to me said he was getting it while he could, because he thinks that after the election is over, gas will be going up again. I don't know about that, but it will help me get a little farther down the road.

Tom and C. W. in John's "old" car
It is hard to believe the changes that have occurred in the world while I have been on my way. This picture was taken in the sixties and of course the car is from an earlier time. Tom says it was a 1938 or 1939 Chevrolet. It makes me wonder how transportation will change in the future. Will our little electric cars zoom along from plug in to plug in? Will we hover in the air as our children climb down the ladder to school? I suppose they could just put on their packs and jettison down. Hmmmm, maybe they will be able to jetison to school. And of course after school it will be, "Beam me up Mom." My sense is that they may just stay home and have have their lessons electronically fed to them. I guess parents will no longer look forward to the end of summer vacation when the little ones go back to school, but then again, who knows.

At one time, I had just a few grandchildren. It was difficult to get them all to remain still long enough to snap a picture. This picture is about 11 years old and now there are more grandchildren. I think the number is 26. They are all amazingly smart and beautiful. Some have embarked on their own journey. I suppose they have always been on their way also, but they seem to be snipping at the apron strings. It is time for a new picture.
