We're in Texarkana tonight, on the long road home. Today was a rough drive through El Paso, Fort Worth, and Dallas. And then, just 20 miles from our stopping point, there was a abad accident in a construction zone. After sitting in traffic in 95+ heat for an hour, we managed to get turned around and head back up an exit ramp on the shoulder, where we joined a long line of others creeping through back roads and small towns on two-lane paths. Happy to be safely settled now.
The day did bring us a lovely surprise, however. We learned that we have been chosen as one of five couples who will be honored during pre-homecoming festivities at a ceremony known as "The Kiss on the K." We can't actually be there next weekend, but it comes with some other lovely prizes. We had entered our story about how we met at Kent State, just as a lark.
