A Road Sign

My daughter had one of these road signs posted on her weblog so naturally I had to try it. Well she had Much Better Stuff on hers, like happiness, wealth, eternal marriage, etc.

Linda Jo Highway
Bewilderment Avenue6
Study Hall144
County Jail533
Please Drive Carefully

Where are you on the highway of life?


What really bothered me was the suggestion to visit all these places. Why on earth would I want to visit a jail?

The Monthly Grants Pass Shopping Trip

During winter months the pass to Grants Pass, Oregon is closed due to snow in the Siskiyou Mountains, but by late spring the road is open and we like to go over the hill every month ... once a month at least.

Today I drove over to Grants Pass with both my teenagers. Mainly we just go shopping at Walmart. When we got home tonight the kids were enthusiastic about using all the new toys. We got a new vacuum cleaner and of course they both had to try it out. Amazing how much dirt collected in our carpet since the last one broke. We live in the mountains and dust seems like a way of life around here.

I'm always happy to get back home after a long drive out of town. On the way home we saw the full moon and it was so pretty - we stopped just to look at it.
