Lincoln Airport

We got Verlon down to the Lincoln Airport this morning for his 10:02 flight to Chicago. It appeared that everything was O.K. when we left to come home. We learned later that after boarding and getting out to the end of the runway, mechanical problems were detected which took over 1 1/2 hours to repair. As he hurried to the gate in Chicago, his plane pulled away. He was able to get a later flight and finally got home in Richmond, VA about 7:30pm. It was a long day for him. We were very appreciative of every thing he got done for us while he was here in addition to having a good visit. It kind of follows the pattern that Dad used years ago. It seemed that after a family dinner when everyone began to get sleepy, he would come up with the need to move cattle from one pasture to another, or something of the sort that involved several people. We jokingly said that we got along better working together than playing together. Verlon even mentioned when we talked with him this evening that this was one of his best visits.
