Wish me luck and enhanced patience ~ I'm driving to Denver today, sans husband. He is doing his 2-weeks with the Navy, out on a boat, so I'm going to visit my parents. My daughter hates her car seat and Silver is terrified of cars, so it will be so pleasant.
Jim called last night from the boat before they left and said he was out on a sort of balcony, where his cell would work. He asked around about a place to use it and they pointed to a hatch (door) that was 2 1/2 feet tall. He asked, "is this a new-guy trick?" But no, he really had to walk through a tiny door to get to a balcony.
