    The poet Robert Burns said it best. Best laid plans…
    The travelling wall truck was significantly delayed coming out of Tyler, and we had to scrub the mission. Thank you to the riders and all the law enforcement help from the Wilco SO and Georgetown PD who were on hand.
    The trailer is supposed to arrive this evening, so come out tomorrow morning to help assemble the wall.
