Good morning from Florida where I hope the constant waft of prescription medication in the air throughout the entire state will cure my poison ivy.
Yesterday’s journey down I-75 was fairly uneventful southbound, only encountering rain along the way. I had one nervous moment where I sped to make a lane change, only to see FL state troopers in the distance; I was fortunate to resume legal speeds prior to getting too close. Northbound was a different story, however. North of Gainesville I witnessed the aftermath of a burned out RV and some vehicle behind it which stopped all lanes of traffic for at least five miles. Twice more before reaching Tampa fire trucks or state troopers had the northbound traffic completely stopped. After seeing these three incidents and recalling the one through which I sat in July, I am nervous about my return trip and may wind up taking an alternate route.
I hung out with my mother before we went over an aunt’s house for their weekly dinner and card game. Yes, I ate meat. Yes, I did not win at cards.
Perhaps it was because I was awake at 4:30, or spent over seven hours driving, or both, I was whooped and went to bed around 9:00pm.
My weekend will be filled with hanging out with my mother, brother, and sister in law.
On Sunday I will join my mother for an afternoon of bingo playing.
I hope that all things are moving in your world, and that you are remaining healthy.
