I have to backtrack a little to tell you about this trip. Found out recently that I need to have a hip replacement. While getting the XRay and CT scan with the Orthopedic doctor to check that out, something else appeared in the picture and he set me up with a gynechologist. She did an ultrasound and said there was something there like a calcified fibrode which was probably not something bad but sent me off to have an MRI just to make sure. It was either have that done the day I planned to head out to a rally OR wait another couple of weeks so.......I figured I would be all ready to leave and just take off right after the MRI. Turns out that the MRI was with and without contrast so it took much longer than I anticipated. I didn't get done until 2:30PM. But I was ready to go.....I mean really ready to get out of here ready to go. So I did!
I drove as far as Marble Falls before I needed coffee since I skipped it this morning. I pulled into the parking lot behind the Blue Bonnet Cafe and it was pretty empty so I turned on the fantastic fan and opened a window for Harley. He got a quick visit to some grass on the far side of the lot and I went in for coffee. Of course, I was seduced by the pie since I didn't have any lunch. For some reason, my waitress never came back with more coffee but when she brought my ticket, she offered me a to-go cup which was perfect. When I came back out to the parking lot. There was a vehicle parked on each side of me.....I mean, the entire lot was empty but they parked on each side of me.
