Surprise Visit!

As I was relaxing after coming home from the Gallup Inter-Tribe Indian Ceremonial, I received a call from longtime buddy Wellington "Bill" Wilson. I've known Bill since junior high.

He and his wife Linda (both truckers) were stopped at the Flying J for a break and asked if I were available to come down for a visit. I said I was and headed over.

The last time Bill saw me was when the paramedics were working on me. Bill said he saw sweat pouring from my head and "out of it" during my heart attack in Wells, Nevada.

We met up and sat in their living quarters of their new semi and chatted for a while. I told them what transpired after the helicopter picked me up from Bella's Restaurant and Espresso and took me to Twin Falls, Idaho.

They presented me with get-well card signed by people associated with the Wells Fun Run. That was very nice of everyone to do so. It is much appreciated.

Bill and Linda drive cross-country in their new semi along with their three dogs. It is larger than the one (and that was big as well) Bill showed me a few months ago. They were on their way to Los Angeles with a load from (if I remember right) the Washington, D.C. area. The last place I knew they were at was somewhere in Ohio.

Here's the get-well card they brought:

Thanks to all!
