The Ministry-Mobile...

This was pretty cool. I (Ross) had a quick trip to Philadelphia to meet with the local volunteer team. The trip went great, but my flights to get into the city were just horrible: Two hours sitting on the runway in Little Rock waiting for a storm to pass, then after an hour long delay in Memphis, I boarded the plane and waited for another two hours at the gate because of a computer problem. After it was determined that the nearest replacement part was in Canada, I was told to get off the plane and wait for another plane that could take me. Finally, at 2:30 am, I landed in Philly. Now it was time to get the rental car. I had reserved the cheapest car at the cheapest rental agency, but when I got to the front of the line and handed over my drivers license, the girl at the counter said "How about that, we have the same birthday." I asked which one of the little Kia Rio's I would be driving, and the attendant just smiled and said "I have an early birthday present for you." I dragged my luggage out to the parking lot, found space #20, and saw before me a shiny red convertible Mustang (2007, and only 450 miles on it). What a treat! The car was great and reminded me a lot of my old '69 Mach 1. I did manage to test out the convertible top, but was unable to fully see what the "big engine" could do. I didn't think any cop would see "Urgent Ministry to Families in need" as a valid excuse for speeding down the turnpike.

LOVE the photos of Isaiah with Ross' shoes (and with Ross) and I absolutely adore the quote at the end of that post.... gonna have to make note of that one somewhere for myself! As for Ross' journey to Philly - sorry it was such a rough ride GETTING there, but glad you got a special present to drive around for awhile! And good choice on the "slower speeds..." PA cops are NOT fond of speeders, ESP. on the turnpike (trust me, I know this very well)!!! :) - Tam
