Temp range: 54° -76° (Tempe)
Another nice day. Ate breakfast at the Holiday Inn. Bernard called from Ramada Inn in Metro. Boyd & Nancy met us for lunch at Village Inn near us. He’s working for K.C. Life. Drives a Cadillac. Took bankruptcy last week. Can keep one car & (paying on) home. Nancy said she’d put on 25 pounds since she quit smoking. They’re both pretty blue. He had appointments and went on. I love the little well built Tempo. Called Martins & went over there. She was sitting in sun. He wasn’t feeling too well. Bill took us down & had a couple drinks. Got lost going back to Roy’s. Ended up on Eliott & Alma Rd. It was dark. Carrie had made hash – they had eaten, but had plenty for us too.
Temp: 50° when we left for Wichita
Up early. Grimes called me about some feeders (told him to call back at Ralph’s at 9:45). Forgot it was “Color Day”. Got up to Ralph’s about 10. He wanted to ride back with me to pick up Town Car I’d brought from Dodge City. A customer caught him just as we were leaving. Took 10 to 15 minutes. Stopped & got a few groceries. Stopped at apartment & got his radio-phone. He contacted Joe Hermann as he was going into Dodge City. Home by 11:11. Bill was walking the floor. Hurriedly threw some things in suitcase. On the road by 11:50. Stopped at drive-in in Stafford for a sandwich. At airport about 2pm. Flight left at 3:35. Had seat 11 (room for Bill’s legs). Arrived in Phoenix at 5:05 their time. Tried to rent a car, missed my drivers license. Got brand new Tempo. Got lost once getting to Carrie’s. She had steak supper on the table.
