13 Jun The Family Reunited
After a really good night of sleep, I awoke this morning to a flat tire! Apparently took a nail sometime yesterday and developed a slow leak. Fortunately, my brother, Steve, has spent the last couple years in his mechanic career specializing in tires and suspensions. UNfortunately, the nail was right at the joint of the tread and the side wall of the tire (more in the sidewall than the tread), which makes for an unrepairable tire.
He received a call last night from the Rockwall Dodge dealership in response to his application there, and they set him up with an interview at 2:00 this afternoon. While Dad and Steve’s wife, Danielle, went to DFW airport to pick up my sister, April, Steve went on his interview. I mowed Mom & Dad’s lawn. With the heat and humidity, I think I caught up on my last few months of missed workouts!!
Steve’s interview went well (he awaits return of the obligatory drug testing), April arrived in good spirits, and we all spent the evening at Casa Miguel, a Rockwall Tex/Mex restaurant that operates out of an old house with great food.
An additional and very deeply sentimental feature of this restaurant is their Rockwall sports memorabilia, which includes our older brother, Leroy’s, Rockwall High School Letterman’s jacket and an 8×10 of his football picture.
Some may not have heard of Leroy, who passed away in 1994. More on him later.
After a great dinner, here I am at my second office getting a few needed things taken care of, including updating you. A few have posted comments letting me know they’re traveling with me in spirit. If you haven’t yet, please do!
