Randal's brother-in-law James has agreed to help Bobby get to the Army Hospital to visit his mom. He's asked for a few days to come up with a feasible plan. James wants everything to go smoothly.

A beautiful day

Max woke up early and was going to get ready to leave and open up the food pantry. He had gone to see his friend Randal last night so he missed helping Miss Jane in the cafeteria. His buddy was always there so he knew if Miss Jane needed help Joe would help her. Max was glad he went to see Randal. It was to ask a favor for Bobby and his mom. He wanted to reunite the family before he left to go see Danielle. He would not leave until he knew that he'd done all he could for Bobby. He was a very good little boy and deserved to be with his mom. On Max's way downstairs he checked on the little guy. He was sound asleep in his room. Max shut the door and went downstairs for a cup of Miss Renee's famous coffee.

At the food pantry

Max got to the food pantry early and had the doors unlocked and the generators running quietly and at top performance. He looked on the board to see what was on the breakfast menu. Miss Jane was making scrambled eggs with biscuits. He went in the pantry and got out the powdered milk and the big trays for the biscuits. He sat the butter on the counter to bring it to room temperature. It was easier to spread. He went into the basement and brought up some preserves. He wasn't sure what kind until he looked closely at the jars. They were strawberry preserves and Max loved strawberries. This was going to be a good breakfast. Miss Jane walked through the door at 5:00 a.m. sharp. She had to smile when she saw the butter on the counter and the preserves sitting next to the butter. Max must be hungry this morning.

Signs of spring

The morning went by like a flash in the eye. People came and went and Max helped Miss Jane clean up the cafeteria and scrub the pans. When he left to walk back to the rooming house the sun was shining. It was warmer outside than he could remember in a long time. Max didn't have anything to tell him but if he had to guess he'd say it was about 18 degrees. That was like a heat wave compared to the -21 temperatures they'd been experiencing. Once spring came people could get around easier and life could go back to somewhat normal.

Dreams of a garden

Miss Renee had plans for a garden. She had been telling Max about it while he was drinking his morning coffee. She had a big back yard that would be perfect if she could get the ground tilled and start some seeds. The cold winter had taken a toll on everyone. The thought of a beautiful spring day made Max smile. Miss Renee had her heart set on making fresh salads from the vegetables she'd grown herself. Max promised he'd help till and plant whatever she wanted.

Randal's visit

Randal was at the rooming house when Max arrived home. He told Max that his brother-in-law said he would find a way to get Bobby to the Army Hospital. Miss Renee overheard the guys talking and came in the room. Randal said that James was going to arrange transportation for all of them to see Bobby's mom. Miss Renee was so happy for Bobby. She hugged Randal and thanked him for all his help. Randal said it was going to take a couple days but he would let them know the exact plans as soon as he knew. Max shook Randal's hand and watched him as he walked down the porch steps and head for home. Now it was just a matter of waiting till everything came into place. Max hoped and prayed it wouldn't take too long. He wanted to go out to the farm to see Danielle.
