Quickie travelogue

I'm getting more in the habit of writing in my journal. Enough so, that I jotted down some notes while I was away. I've put these into order with the travel notes I sent in email, to form a very brief travelogue:

Short notes from the Road:

9:00 am EDT Sam's gas for $1.419? I'll pass. If I'd known, I would have filled up at home for $1.299.

Leaving Collins Bowling center. I bowled sucky, but we took 3 out of 4 points.

10:55 am EDT 49°F! What happened to Spring? Nice, overcast day for a drive.

11:35 am EDT Woo hoo! Go Flying J! $1.309 a gallon. Nifty postcards, but they've sold out all their elastic watches.

Leaving Flying J.

12:45 pm EDT Stopped at Watkin's Marathon station for Dad's Rootbeer. Jackpot! They had three 12-packs. I cleared them out.

12:49 pm EST (IN doesn't observe Daylight Savings Time.) Bill O'Reilley is on about some TV dad wearing high heels & a dress on a school field trip to the zoo.

I say high heels on a field trip? All the moms I've seen on field trips are wearing canvas shoes or sandals, and machine-washable pants. I wear knit, but some moms (the ones who still take the time to put on make-up) wear khakis.

Oh goodie, a mom just called in with just that point.

I'm now in IN. Thus begins the construction.

1:04 pm EST The construction was only just north of Louisville. If it's intended to scare away KYans, it didn't work on me. Now I'm seeing signs for various outlet malls. I'm planning to stop & look for party supplies for the Tuesday Tigers banquet.

Still driving. Turns out Clinton is just north of Terre Haute, which is practically in the next state.

3:51 pm EST I arrived in Terre Haute before the Texas Roadhouse opened for dinner.

FYI: Spoke with Minikin on the phone, she has arrived.

FYI: Minikin just left our house.

5:36 pm EDT I got to stop by for a short visit with Wolf & Sydb on way home from IN.

I just realized that after all of those on-the-road messages, I failed to send out a notice that I was home.

I'm home, safe & sound.
