A long long day

We drove to Hays, Kansas, today to get Linda's car.  We got to the Chevy dealer around 3PM Central Time, picked up her car, returned the rental car to Enterprise, had a late lunch and then hit the road on the way back to Colorado.

We had a little scare when we stopped at a rest area right at the Kansas/Colorado border.  When we came back to the car, she couldn't get her key to go in the ignition and the lights were acting funny.  Of course, the first thing we thought was that the Chevy dealer had screwed something up.  We tried everything we could think of and had just about come to the conclusion that we would be spending the night in the car and then having the car towed tomorrow.

But we called my son-in-law Ed (in St. Louis) and it turned out that the steering wheel was locked up and just needed to be jiggled a little for everything to work again.  So we got back on the road and just got back home.  It was a 13-hour day.  She was SO glad to get her car back.
