Hollywood or Bust Update

Keegan and Ian have arrived safely in Las Vegas, NV where they will rest and relax and bring in the new year with Papa and Helen. They will drive the final leg of their journey on Sunday. It has been quite the adventure thus far. A little recap... Day One: ticketed by an ill-tempered cop; Day Two: fuel pump goes out requiring a tow and repairs; Day Three: a snowstorm and in the road a FedEx truck on its side. They have been experiencing the kinds of trials and tribulations that can be encountered on any road trip. They have also been experiencing great blessing. The fuel pump went out in Clines Corners, only 30 minutes away from where Grandmama was waiting to visit with them. The vehicle was towed to Moriarty and they visited with family while waiting for the repairs to be completed. Serendipitously, Grandaddy and Margaret were returning from doctors appointments and they all ended up in Moriarty at the same time. So Ian got to meet Grandmama, Aunt Christie, Eric, Joseph, Cori, Grandaddy and Gram. Also, the mechanics completed the job about an hour earlier then expected allowing them to get to Albuquerque before it was too dark. And Grandmama relieved their financial burden. Thank you so very much, Mama! For Keegan and Ian this visit seemed to refresh their spirits!!
They also had a wonderful visit with the Winfield's. Hearty and warm food and good company was awaiting them. They received some trip planning advice, a tank of gas, and some extra funds. Thank you all so very much for the love and support expressed to Keegan during this venture. Despite the travails she is feeling richly blessed and I thank you all from the depths of my heart!!!
