After the Individual
State Champs in Peoria we stopped in at the elder Hansens home,
just a couple miles down the road,
Grandma Margaret, and Grandpa "Pap"
were all as sweet as pie. And pizza pies are just part of what they fed us.
Before the race they gave us hydrating ripe watermelon that saved our minds from frying in the Willamette Valley heat. They also set us up with distilled water and coffee for Alex and I.
Afterwards, we stopped in for cheese burgers and cokes with all the fixins. For those that were still hungry, they ate pizza pies.
Wheelchair accessable, they even had an electric scooter for me to use. Wow!
With great conversation, air conditioning, and a baseball game on the TV, it was a little slice of Heaven before the long drive home.
Thank you Grandma Hansen for your fine hospitality, from the men of Word RCB.
