To continue the adventure to get to Peanut's house the jolly carload had to go from South Dakota to Nebraska (where Wally's GranNE lives) into Kansas (howdy to Stanley, Stella and Deetzy) on to Oklahoma (luckily no one broke out in song), through Texas ( waved to Mack ,The Brat Pack , Gus, Louie, Callie and Cubby). After driving for over 25 hours they were able to find their way onto the Army base. I was told that they had 3 very nice days with Peanut, Flash, Shelby and the boy. As is life all good thinks must come to an end as they had to return home so that Grammie could reenter the work force. Grammie says. "Moco, there is no more wonderful sight then when you see the Columbia. and Mt. Hood. You really know you are home at that time." I think the next time she might take us and leave Pappy at the house.
