8:15 a.m. In the parking lot of a Childress, Texas McDonald's (ugh), Burford has performed a supposedly impossible feat. He has defeated all the safety features of the White Courtesy Van. He has locked the keys inside.
The Caravan has to make time, so they continue down the highway while we figure a way inside. Unfortunately, the Courtesy Van's anti-theft features are more difficult to defeat than its safety features.
How'd we get in? Burford jimmied the door with twenty dollars, American. He traded them for the services of a friendly slimjim-wielding locksmith.
|As with the CB, serendipity struck again: when Burford went back into McD's to use a phone, someone overheard & handed him Milton's home-made business card (free plug for ya, there, Milton).|
It wasn't long before we caught up with the Caravan. No damage.
