Friday, sunshine, shorts and short sleeves all day long! NICE!!!  Backing up a couple of days.  We had intended to move on Wednesday up ran into a new radiator for the Jeep issue.  Just as the installation was completed they saw that the new radiator had been damaged so the replacement had to be replaced.  So the move to Lake Village was delayed.  In the meantime a viewing of "Le Miz" was in order.  I give it two thumbs up.  Thursday, Jeep repairs completed, the wallet a wee bit lighter and we hit the road.  Down into the "delta" country of Arkansas, we set up camp in the Pecan Grove RV Park in Lake Village, Arkansas, a delightful spot with delightful "folks" (I'm in the South now!) running the place.  Off the do some grocery shopping and get a bite to eat.  JJ's Cafe was the spot.  Deep fried dill pickles as an appetizer followed by omelets and a conversation with the owner.  Our waitress kept the coffee full and made sure we all that we wanted for dinner.  As I was about to pay for our dinner our waitress said, "it's been taken care of".  Turns out "JJ" got the jump on us and comped our meal.  Thank you, sir, for your kindness.  As it turns out our waitress's father-in-law passed away from cancer in 2012 so I informed her that I would be walking for him on Friday.  Thank you Valerie for reminding me of a gratuity!!!  The kindness of strangers.

At the end of the day Friday we had covered 22.9 miles (36.9355 km's) under 45,657 steps and $0.43 in cash.  Findings of the day: 1 #7 socket, 1 quarter, 1 dime, 1 nickel and 3 pennies.
