I was walking from Hasty to Lamar this morning when the police stopped and said she'd rather I not be out walking today, so she drove me in to Lamar. I'll be staying at the Days Inn tonight for free and Super 8 (right next door) tomorrow night for free. Call me if you want.
Days Inn - 719-336-5340 Rm 128 tues afternoon/tues night
Super 8 - 719-336-3427 wed/wed night



Today I walked across town to Wal-Mart to buy a flag. Of all things, they didn't have any. When I stepped outside, the Conoco gas station at the end of the parking lot had a long, long, LONG line of people waiting to buy gas. There must've been over 100 vehicles waiting in line.
I turned around, went back inside, grabbed a cart and filled it with 45 cold bottles of water and cold bottles of pop. When I got to the register, the manager came and asked me what I was doing. I said I was going to give the drinks to the people waiting in line at the gas station. She then looked outside, saw the long long line, then asked the cashier to total out the receipt and give it to her. So Wal-Mart donated 45 drinks costing over $35. I told each person that this was free from Wal-Mart. Everyone was very suprised and very gracious.
My hat is off to Wal-Mart.
God bless America, the land of the free and the home of the brave.

WHERE WERE YOU AT WHEN IT HAPPENED?
September 11, 2001. I woke up around 6:15 am, sleeping in my sleeping bag inside a classroom on the floor of the Christian Church in Hasty Colorado.
Hasty is a tiny blip of a town and the little grocery store is where all the locals hang out, drinking coffee, playing poker and chewing fat.
The day before, someone had hauled my cart and left it here at the grocery store, so by the time I got there they had all sorts of far-fetched stories and rumors and jokes about my cart and what it was for. I of course had to tell them everything, till they knew my entire life history and had all their questions answered.
So the next morning, before I started walking to Lamar, I stopped in at the grocery store to buy 3 lg bottles of water. The lady was very nice and didn't charge me for it.
Just then one of the guys sitting around said "LOOK AT THE TV!" We all turned and the first crash had just happened. There I stood, in the grocery store in Hasty Colorado, totally transfixed by what I was seeing on a little 12" b&w TV.
It was well over an hr later before I left the grocery store. They told me to hit the ditch if I saw any airplanes. I spent a lot of time on my cell phone talking to my family in Oregon and friends in Kansas.
I had only been walking for an hr & a half when Police Trooper Julie Jones pulled over and suggested for safety reasons that she drive me in to Lmr. I wasn't going to argue.
It was already planned that I would spend 2 days in Lamar, so I've been glued to the TV ever since.
To see so much chaos and destruction and confusion and despair truly shakes our foundation of life and liberty. Our freedom and liberty in America has been badly shaken but not destroyed. With much faith, strength and courage, and with a unity of brotherhood, we can survive and rebuild. We truly are our brothers keepers. God bless America, the land of the free and the home of the brave.
