A few weeks ago I launched a rescue mission the Tuesday after Labor Day. Over the long weekend, my daughter and son-in-law2b hired a couple to bring them up from Kentucky to where I live in the suburbs of Chicago. Well, the car blew a tire on the expressway and the towing/ repair shop would not take a debit card over the phone. Neither would the motel. So, after using all of the cash they had, got the tire fixed and it blew 1 mile up the road. What??!! You can’t make this stuff up! They reversed all the way back to the shop! They repaired it again. No charge. I think that they should have refunded the $75 they paid. Period.
I told them just to go back to Mayfield (KY) and I would figure something out. My daughter is expecting and was 28 weeks at that point. So, I as a momma, rented a car and went and got them. It was 8 hrs down. Not counting when I got very lost trying to find them because if you got off the main road, the GPS stops working and no phone service either! I asked a very nice man (at a stop sign in the backwoods of Kentucky) how to get to that main road.
“Ma’am, you ARE lost” (me: uh, yes. Smh🤦🏻♀️). “You stay on this road. It’s very curvy! (Duh, I have been on it for only 1/2 hr.! 💭) “…cross 303. And go till you get to 121 and turn right! That will git you back ta Mayfield. (Back.to.mayfield????) 🤦🏻♀️
So 1/2 hr or so later, I found CVS across from the courthouse. And the police station 😂🤣😂 I told my daughter that I was found!! She had called me so many times and I had no phone service! So she was freaking out!
They are well. We all have recuperated! Especially me because I had to drive all but 2 1/2 hours back with no sleep and I couldn’t sleep when we got home until night! I was punch drunk being awake for like 36 hours or so!

I had a great weekend with my husband! He was off of work for 2 whole days when I was with him. And I brought the kitties home with me! One was a cat my hubby gave me for Valentines Day in 2010? We have had to be separated for 6 years to allow each of us to deal with our each individual issues. But now I get him, KitKat back!
He was just starting to come out from hiding yesterday evening. The other kitty, Tux, was a gift to my hubby for Christmas from his kids. He was intended as a companion for KitKat who lost a sweet cat house mate, Smoky Joe.
