The day started w a very good breakfast then a nice 55 mile ride. It was a little foggy but no sun in our eyes. Yea. The 5 of us stopped in Milano to flag up just before the church. The 5 Cen-Tex riders already there, said it made a very nice visual as we rode in. Mr. Clinard's granddaughter, Amy, was very gracious & thanked us all for showing such support & respect. Thanks everyone for your continued patriotism. You DO make a difference.
