Day 3

Anne and Ken had planned to get up at 5:30, load the sleeping kids in the car, and get to Nashville early. Actually you can omit the middle action because they threatened us with waking up and finding they had gone but left the kids.

When I woke up that morning, I wondered if they had really done it because Adam was in the bed with me and George was asleep on the floor. They go off considerably later than they had planned.

Jay gave me directions for when I got to Mobile. They turned out to be invaluable. He gave me lane recommendations, which I need and most people omit.

When I got to Mobile, I obeyed Jay for once. For getting on the interstate, second leftmost lane, turn left, two lanes turn and don't get into leftmost lane, swing around, and then on the interstate. I did ok also going through the tunnel.

Then came the hard part. Passing the Pensacola turnoffs. My Uncle Bob lived there and I miss him very much after his death.

Later in the afternoon when I saw very dark clouds ahead, I stopped early at Marianna, FL, west of Tallahassee. I was afraid of running into those heavy Florida downpours.
