Dunno about you but I take the No smoking thing around gas pumps ~ very seriously...
During a fuel stop in Louisiana a new Chevy Trailblazer pulled up to the pump behind me. Mr. got out and started to pump gas. Mrs. got out of the truck, moved to the front of the vehicle, lit a cig and stood there chatting AND SMOKING like it was the most natural thing in the world. Fortunately I was finished and hightailed it outta there before the explosion.
Stopped in Sulphur, LA for lunch and gas *heh* Ate at a Waffle House. Place looked like they had been pretty busy. There was only one clear space in the whole place ~ at the counter. I don't think I will ever be able to eat at a Waffle House EVER again...
Other than the fact that is seemed to be "Hey! Let's Get In Front Of The U-Haul Truck! And Slow Down to Five To Ten MPH Below The Posted Speed Limit" Day It was a pretty uneventful drive from Slidell.
Until I got to the west side of Beaumont, Texas. The wind was gusting so hard that it seemed like it was trying to snatch the wheel out of my hands every time I got above 70 MPH. ~! Fought this almost to the Houston city limits. Jeeeeez!
All in all a pretty good trip. Got to visit with both my sisters and their kids. And I got to bring a bunch (a small bunch) of my Mom's furniture to live with me and The Offspring. It's all good.
Except for the deficit of pictures thing. Sorry about that...
And at least the dog was happy to see me. Doesn't mean much though...He's happy to see any one... *grins*
