Isaiah 57:1 The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart: and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come. 2 He shall enter into peace: they shall rest in their beds, each one walking in his uprightness.

Turns out there probably wasn't enough rain over the past couple of days to swamp me in for a Sunday departure but I'm glad I didn't take the chance.  Been quite comfortable where I have been encamped just off the highway and now I am planning to head to Lubbock tomorrow.  Will be staying within blocks of the doctor's office and the hospital.  49,57,50, .10",B

Of course, there just has to be some rain in the immediate forecast that could throw a wrench in my departure plans.  I AM NOT going to hike out in the mud again - so if the forecast holds, I will leave tomorrow night and stay at a friend's easily accessible highway property until I head to Lubbock on Sunday.  Good thing I have a neighbor who will tend to Ben while I am away.80,90,49,0,B
