This morning started with Tom and I going for breakfast at the Iron Skillet at a local truck stop. Restaurants are not in abundance in this neck of the woods but I’m not complaining because the breakfast was good. We then rode over to Deshler, Tom’s hometown. Tom stopped and talked with an old friend that has a business in town. Old buildings have been torn down and new buildings built. And some old buildings should be torn down. Trains are still running frequently through the town. In a NAPA store Tom thought he had found a part to repair the steps but when he tried repairing the steps the threads needed to be reversed from what he had. So he had to return the part and we will just have to wait until we get to Red Bay, Alabama. It has been cloudy all day with showers. Tomorrow is predicted to be stormy.
