Well, today was the day. No more putting it off. Gotta get through Evansville! The plan was to get out early and make it safely to Billy's. BUT... before we knew it, we had a visitor! Jenny Catt's dad! He said we could stay closer to 41! At the super Flea Market lot! So, we talked to him and he said he'd drive and see for sure how to go and that Jenny could call and ask if there was electric and he'd be back.
Sure enough! Only 12 miles to go! That was great news!
Bob was pretty antsy for the first 5 miles! But he finally walked along like he didn't care.
LOTS of traffic on 41!! Thank goodness most of it was 3 lanes which was awesome! Pretty standard trip. People shocked to see us in line at the traffic lights! LOL! Cameras...EVERYWHERE!
We crossed an old "fancy" bridge with the whole iron cover or whatever you call it. Pretty cool! Horses didn't even caree.
Along the way we met Pam. She would like prayer for all of the needs out there. And there are MANY!
Then we stopped to chat with Rena. She is going through a very difficult divorce after a long marriage and asks for prayer for her and her 2 children, Rena and Roosevelt.
We stopped for Bobbie Gray, who brought a precious little girl out to see the horses. She asked for prayer for her and her family, her kids.
So, we turned a few blocks short of our directions. Must have been God that made that choice! We talked to soooo many nice folks at that corner! When we went back to driving, a school bus full of little ones passed us and oh my goodness!!!!! The squeals and screams of excitement that we heard come out of that bus were enough to make the whole trip worth while! They were all so excited! I guess city kids don't see big horses everyday on their way home from school! Very cool!
So, we made it to the flea market and have electric and water. Bob Savage was very nice. I don't know his partners name but he is also very nice. They offered us everything. And went and bought the guys some carrots, which they will eat now. Still hate apples though. Bob has lost weight. We now have him on weight builder and are hoping for some short days and let his fat catch up with him. He's eating good, more than he was, just lookin lean and sleek. But winter is coming and he could use some body weight to keep him warm.
So, that was our day. We're going to turn in and get some good sleep.
We thank you all for following and pray that the Lord just covers all of you prayer warriors with His blessings! Thanks! The bible says that when two or more come into agreement, your prayers will be answered. That's the Word, and we can stand firmly on it!
Good night and God bless!
