The best laid plans of mice and men...

Poor Billy, stuck at the Metro Station at Wash U
last night because the trains quit running due
to the nasty weather.

Blessed Billy, to have such a good Opa that would
leave his warm nest in Weldon Springs to drive all
the way to the Big City to pick up the stranded boy.

Grateful Billy, to have a cell phone to call his Opa
and to while away the time calling friends and family,
from the cold, open-to-the-weather station, as he waited
for over an hour for help to arrive.

That is sooo brutal about the ticks in your area! I am so icked out by bugs that I think I would have a panic attack if I or anyone in my family came home with them on them! EEWWW!!!

You have such a GREAT attitude! What a way to live!!! I am a worrier and I sure wish I could just release things like you do!

I just scrolled down and read your review post and commented- wonderful.

Glad Billy had a cell phone while he was stranded in the cold! What in the world did we do before cell phones? I don't talk on mine much, but am grateful for them in emergencies, that's for sure!
