I had a prearranged appointment with the owner of the Feed Store in Ennis to purchase eight bags of oats. Since the grain store isnít open on Sundays or Mondays, I was lucky I could talk Pat into opening the store for a few minutes so I could pick up enough gasoline (feed) to last me for the next week and a half.
Early in the afternoon, I met Lynn, who is a good friend of fellow Teamster, Ron Dakota and his girlfriend Terry. She invited me to stay at her and her husbands farm, 7 1/2 miles north of the town of Ennis. Since the trip to Ennis was already 21 miles, I didnít think the team had enough energy to travel so far, but I promised to girve it a try.
