We had plenty of luck this past week... but none when it came to seeing thunder. I heard thunder (he sounded nicer than his political posts would have you believe)... but I did not see thunder. I guess that's right. You see lightning... but you will not see thunder... even if you're only 10 freaking miles away... because your 21st Century technology will fail you. Thunder will be lurking... waiting for you, but you will go hurtling past.
I was also in the vicinity of BG... had I been doing this trip again, I would plan differently, remembering all of the people who might be in my path. Oh well.
A random sampling of quotes from the past week???
(this one to be said in very dry, ironic tones) "Wow... two first in 24 hours... an Applebee's and a thud toilet." -- EL
"Who wants to pull over for a ham/pickle roll-up and a Coke??" -- Grizzled
"Fuck Cabin John Parkway!!!" -- Grizzled and Jennifer... many times...
Blogging may or may not resume.
