My parent's 26th wedding anniversary was yesterday and as far as my Mom new, she'd be spending it without my dad. He was away on one of his yearly trucking trips across America and wouldn't be able to get back in time. He told her he was headed to Maryland on Wednesday, but got on a bus in Chicago, instead. 19 hours, 1,000 miles and a few pit stops later, we were picking him up from a bus stop in downtown Dallas. Surprise!
