A Thanksgiving Adventure

On Wednesday afternoon we drove the 3 hours to Marietta to see the relatives. On Thanksgiving Day I assisted in the kitchen with the bird and the trimmings. Great food, good fellowship and then we headed back to Cleveland.

On the way back – the music is cranked and we are singing out loud.

Just above New Philadelphia the car hesitates a bit… what’s the matter? I look down at the dash. What’s that light next to the empty fuel gauge? How long has that been on?

Whoa… car is really slowing down now…over to the side of the highway.

We sat in the dark with the flashers going and talked about the day and how pretty the stars were in rural Ohio.

Thanks to the county sheriff who laid a flare behind us and the guy from AAA who put a couple of gallons in our tank on Thanksgiving night.

It is a relatively new car and with the music going we apparently did not hear the warning bell.

Life is always an adventure.

I was reading Mike Cope's blog and noticed you mentioned Cleveland in your entry. My family and I will be relocating to the Akron/Canton area in February. I will be a church consumer for the first time and would appreciate any insight you might offer.
Referencing one of your earlier blogs-James Walters was the best Bible teacher I've ever had.
Thank you,
Ragan Price
