Day 91

Moving again!  Not far but getting closer to another dreaded city.  We should be able to make it all the way through it tomorrow.
We are in/near Nebo, KY.  Staying with the Wesley Allen family for the night!  Expecting to see the Jones guys yet tonight, and had a visit from Ron (2 stops back).  He ran out to say hi and bring us the things we left behind...sorry...very forgetful. 
We started out a little late because we knew we were coming here and it was only 8 or 9 miles from where we were.
Bob and Casey were ready to travel.  Bob is eating good again, and John and Jerry watched and corrected a few things in our control system. (reins, bits, bridles).  Mark said WOW!  way more control and had a easy travel day.  Jerry actually came with us this am!  First he drove, then he rode.  This is what these guys do.  They buy & sell & train and pulling ponies. They do pulling competitions all the way down the Mississippi. They break them to harnesses so they know what they're looking for and what works.  Thanks so much for all your knowledge and the sharing of it. Papaw would be proud of you guys!  Mark really enjoyed the company and conversation.
So, off we went.  Back down 41A.  We stopped for a breath in Nebo at the Nebo Service center and they were all great too!  Got water for the horses and a suggestion for an overnight.  Thank you so much, but, like we said...we were heading here.
Lots of people stopped to take pictures while we were stopped and we talked to anybody that had the time.
Billy Parish was the 1st one to offer water and a rest spot.  When we asked if he had a prayer request, he said he'd pray more people would do what we're doing.  Us too Billy!
The Coomers just ask God for their daily needs and Shirley was on her way to have her shoulder looked at.  We'll pray that everything is fine there!
Amy Bowen asked for prayer for her niece that is having heart surgery next month, and for her Godson who is mentally disabled.  And, for peace on earth.
So, for a short day it was a good day.  Always is when we get to meet folks.
We are in coal mining country so we'll have those darn trucks to contend with for a bit again!  Had alot in southern IN too!  The good thing about traveling now is that even though there are trucks, the farmers are all done for the season.  The reason that is good is because unless you've never met a combine on a road without shoulders, you'll never know the challenge that can be with two dancing horses and NOWHERE to go!
We were blessed with 10 bales of hay this evening!  Thank you Lord! (we were down to 2)
And we want to say thank you to Bob S.  Thanks for your continued support!  Gotta meet some day!
So, for now...dinner and bed.  The Allen's offered spaghetti dinner when they get home, but we have thawed meat and with the frig space, we thaw it...we use it!  But we sure do appreciate the offer!   Thank you.
Thanks for following!  We sure appreciate you all!  I hope you are all seeing answers to your prayers daily!  Even miracles!  If you keep your eyes wide open, you'll see them everywhere!
Good night and God bless!
Oh, could you please pray for this flu/cold I have to be gone?  Thanks

We too were concerned when the "posts" stopped, but thrilled to hear you are up and going. Hurray for "BOB" and his healing and able to be the great pulling guy he is meant to be. Blessings and pray the cold/flu goes by the wayside soon.
