The best laid plans…

     You know where this is going, right?  Or not.  You would not believe the day I’ve had.  I am traveling today, and planned to be at my hotel in time to watch Jeopardy!  And I mean, I was really looking forward to it.  I was eager to post my first Coryat scores tonight and encourage you to do the same (in order to enter my contest).  You might say I had trouble when my car started shaking violently and wouldn’t accelerate.  I had to pull over and call for help.  A nice guy called back and thought my fuel filter was the problem.  I made it another few miles to Crook, CO, and he and his men fixed it for me.  Or so I thought.  I get back on the freeway, and it’s still doing it!  I called him and he told me now he thought it was the fuel pump or “vaporlock,” and he wanted me to drive to Sterling 16 miles away.  By the grace of God I made it, but by now it was 6 p.m. (goodbye, Jeopardy!) and it would cost a fortune to have someone come and fix it.  My hotel is still 30 miles away.  A new guy told me to fill with gas, let the car cool for an hour, then try again.  So I’m following his advice and blogging from McDonald’s in Sterling.  I hope and pray I can make it to my hotel tonight and get the car looked at again tomorrow. (I will take your prayers, too!)
     ANYWAY, I still want to give you my score for Monday (15600), in the hopes that it will get you guys started.  I will watch today’s and tomorrow’s episode from home and give my scores to you tomorrow.  Peace.
