Day 125 – Houston, TX – Little Rock, AR

October 10, 2010

Today is 10-10-10, not sure of the significance of that but for me its a 12 hour drive to Little Rock.  Today on my way however I have to make a slight deviation. I headed two hours to Orange TX to meet a man I consider a dear friend, Mike McQueen. Mike is a Vietnam combat veteran, functioning under severe disabilities. He was to have come to Houston for the picnic yesterday but wasn’t up to making the drive.  Mike contacted me two years ago after hearing about Honor and Remember. He had lost his marine nephew Shane and wanted flags to honor him to fly in his city. Now after two years of correspondence, the one person I had to connect with in Texas was Mr McQueen.  If you read back to one of my earlier newsletters in 2008 you will see a post by Mike and know the reason it was so important to meet. The meeting was incredible and tearful and I am so thankful to God for the opportunity. I pray Mike’s health continues to improve as he struggles so desperately with service related issues.

The rest of the 10 hour drive was very much uneventful except for the company of good radio stations and beautiful scenery.

Tomorrow: Day of rest

Blessings, George
