Road Trip














I love the fact that retirement gives me a chance not only to complete projects, but also to try new things. One of those new things will begin bright and early on Monday. I'm going on a road trip.

Three friends and I will be driving (perhaps not so much driving as meandering) throughout the southeast. There are a few destinations in our plan, but for the most part we have no agenda. This happy fact means if someone spies a local event or historical sight or spectacular sunset along the way, well, by golly, we're going to stop and see it. No time crunch, no pressure, no problems.

Life as it's meant to be lived--flying by the seat of our pants. Doesn't that sound awesome?

I'll be bringing my notebook to keep track of any mayhem which possibly (probably) could occur when four women are free to act on impulse. Fear not, Co-travelers. Names can always be changed to protect the guilty.

Since I'll be on the road for about two weeks (or so--who knows?) Critter Alley will be on a brief hiatus until my return.
















P.S. Please consider hopping over to visit my friends at Sketching With Dogs. They are raising funds for a special little dog named Chico in need of pricey veterinary treatment.

Enjoy your trip! My trip to the Maritimes was similar, four women with some idea of where we were going but willing to take side trips as we went.

Have fun and safe travels!

Pat--Don't forget to take some phone numbers with you of people who will pay bail for you. Have fun. Take pictures. I'm sure you'll come back with some CS stories and lots of blog post ideas...

Hope you're having a wonderful time! I'm sure you'll come back with a few stories to tell. And - if it's the best kind of trip - some you never will.
