  1. Well, get a little south wind in our faces on our swing down to OK, Cindy, but it will be worth visiting our Native brothers and sisters.
    A cure for headwinds? Shout, "Is that all you got? Is that all you got?"

  2. "ROUTE FOR TOUR DE PEACE (From Cali to Chicago)"

    Pleese!! Cali is a city in Columbia. I have lived my whole life in CALIFORNIA. I grew up on Route 66, and would be open to riding a portion of it.

  3. Safe travels, Cindy. Heard you on Mike Malloy last night. Wish you could make it to Madison but it's out of the way. You have many friends here.
    Peace,
    Bill
