Moving on…

It’s going to be difficult to find excitement to compare to my stay at WalMart, and I definitely don’t find it on the next night.

Once again, it is a long day!  Unfortunately, I have been experiencing a lot of sleepiness during my morning drives, and have been needing to stop each day for a little power nap.  Later that afternoon when I stopped to check for a nearby campground, I found nothing within my price range.  So…thinking I would stay away from WalMart this time…I look for something else.  Lo and behold, I look up, and there is a sign for Cracker Barrel right in front of me.  Must be fate!!  When I pull around to the back parking lot, it is empty, and I end up having it to myself all night.

In the morning, since I’ve not eaten very well for a couple of days,  the thought of a big plate of biscuits and gravy sounds very enticing.  And it was delicious!!

Moving right along…next stop…my first time in a National Forest…such fun!!

Walmart Movie

First night of leaving Texas I decide to just stop at a Walmart…somewhere.  I get settled in at the edge of the parking lot.  It was a long, hot day, and I was not prepared for the excitement to come…

As dusk settles in, Coco and I sit out on the steps where it is a bit cooler.  Suddenly I hear screeching wheels of a car coming around the corner.  I look up to see a police car seemingly headed straight for me!  At the last minute he turns into the first lane right next to me, slams to a stop, jumps out of his car while pulling his gun.  Now I am in full panic mode.  The officer yells at a male figure walking up the isle toward him to “Get on the f****** ground”.  “Get on the f****** ground or I’ll shoot your a**.”   Wish I had thought of my camera as this was the stuff of movies!  At this point they were on the other side of the police car, but I see the officer put the man in the backseat of the cruiser, then he walks around the car, looks up, sees me, and in a very calm, quiet voice makes a comment about the weather.  Then he gets in his car and quickly takes off, lights flashing.

So there it is…the most exciting time I’ve ever had at a Walmart!!
