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.
