On the road to Oceanside. You do fairly well on the long ride over. Halfway through we make the inevitable family road trip pit-stop at Cracker Barrel. Grandpa leads you to the rocking chairs where you rock back and forth in the Yuma sunset. Many a stop have I made here before, but none so happy as this - to see you swinging your feet side by side with my Dad on the long porch  and grabbing at the familiar checkers and wooden table.
