Oh dear God when will this road trip end? I convinced Jason to take
Interstate 40 back to the east cause I thought it might be more scenic
but at this point I'd give my little toe to be back in central Florida.
(actually I might give both little toes and part of one big one)
As I write this we're somewhere near Little Rock Arkansas and still have
plenty of states to motorvate through. The one saving grace of making it
back to the south is the fact that I can get sweet tea again. Ah . . it's
nectar of the Gods, I tell ya.
I think we're going to do a pit stop in lovely Seale Alabama and see my
friend Butch Anthony (he runs the Alabama Museum of Wonder that I did an
article on a month or so ago) Butch says he's got something special for
me and I'm all excited to see what it is.
More as it develops . . . .
