Highlights: cool, cloudy weather great for driving. And driving. So glad I stopped at the 99c store before the trip to pick up a trunk bag full of "emergency" toy distracters for bored boy. The policeman kit carried us through Texas & OK.
Cabin boy (wearing headset): Mom. What's your report?
Me (to plastic walkie talkie): A blue truck just passed us. What's your report?
Cabin boy: Crocodile in the back seat.
