So far, so good

Miss D. and I are spending the night in Maumelle, Arkansas, just outside Little Rock, after a pleasant drive across Oklahoma.  Since our vehicles are both more than a decade old, and not as reliable as they were, we splurged on renting a nice car for the trip, which has made it much more comfortable.

We made sure to visit Frank's Italian Restaurant in Van Buren (which we discovered while commuting between Tennessee and northern Texas during our house-hunting expeditions in 2015) for a late lunch.  They've moved to new premises, but the food was as delicious as ever.  We'll make a point of eating there whenever we pass this way.

We'll head for Tennessee tomorrow.  We have a bit of business to do here and there before we get to Chattanooga on Thursday, and LibertyCon begins on Friday.  It's going to be a hectic weekend!

I'll try to put up more blog articles tomorrow morning, if this very spotty hotel Internet connection doesn't let me down.

Drive safely, see you there. My wife, Priscilla, has found my stash of your books, and has read them all, and enjoyed them as much as I did.

One of these days when you pass by, we need to do lunch or dinner or something. If you took I-40, you were 25 road miles from my place.

I read the menu for that Frank's Italian Restaurant. Darn shame it is 750 miles away from me. [sigh]

@Bob Mueller: Drop me a line (my e-mail address is in my blog profile). Perhaps we can arrange something on the way back.

Hey - Van Buren - city of my birth!
