Hi guys, I am alive, but I haven’t even had time to put up a guest post, much less the promo.
Be patient with me!
Have a picture to amuse you and keep us in mind tomorrow for the funeral and Tuesday and Wednesday PARTICULARLY when we’ll be driving down and across most of the US on the way home.
Driving yesterday was…. Odd. Every time I got behind the wheel it turned into a kind of “crazy driving training video.” If Dan took the wheel it was fine and boring.
In no particular order I got “car next to me letting its towing rig drop so that it was getting flames from friction on the ground” (Everybody move to the left!), HUGE German Shepherd loose on the highway. (I would have stopped and rendered aid if I were confident I could get across five lanes of traffic to the berm, AND then run back and forth on the highway, to capture the creature without being hit.) As it was I avoided hitting him (twice) and prayed really loud he’d stay on the grassy berm toward the exit. No idea where he came from, but I hope he survived. Looked like a nice pup, though probably part great Dane. I mean, a kid could have ridden him. Even though he looked EXACTLY German Shepherd), “tiny red dumptruck merging at 40 into stream of traffic at 70 trying to merge six feet in front of me, while I have an eighteen wheeler on my left. Followed by, crazy traffic, construction, deluge, direction dyslexics marking construction (left, right left, no, we meant right) in the two miles leading up to it, while playing leapfrog with eighteen wheelers.)
Dan would take over, and it was a beautiful, calm drive. we finally gave up, so I drove maybe 4 hours to his 6 or 6 and a half.
So, whoever was pulling that off, stop it, just stop it. I CAN drive, but I don’t enjoy it, and in the middle there I almost had a heart attack.
Dan SWEARS there was no rain of frogs, no plague of blood. Bah. I know what I remember.
Anyway. Be patient if I don’t post much till Tuesday or Wednesday.
