Bad ending to a weekend trip

I got caught up in the traffic on Interstate 20 that was being detoured around the RV that caught fire Sunday in my hometown.

Hate to see this, but luckily nobody was hurt:

RV fire on I-20 stops traffic between Thomas and Stella/Mill - KNOE 8 News; KNOE-TV; KNOE.com |

Clicking on the pics in the link will get you better views.

Looks like it might have been a brake fire.

DH and I have said that if we come home and our A/C is out, we'll just stay in the RV for the night.

One good thing about remaining friends with the EX is that he and I owned an A/C dealership for 20 years... heck he and DH are better friends than he and I are.

Life's way too short to spend it festerin' yesterday's anger.

When we have A/C issues he'll show up pronto. God Bless that man.
