I had a rough travel day yesterday, so consider this post a bonus. The next few are going back in time to Florida, where it was at least above freezing every moment I was there!
The GPS led me astray last night, in the dark, onto small gravel roads, in my 36’ motorhome. Not so happy last night. I had Wal-Mart in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi as my destination. I found it be accident after taking what would have been a scenic drive through the town, had it been light. Anyway, I made it.
And on the GPS subject, there are all kinds of routing options; mostly freeways, avoid tolls, etc. Well where is the avoid TUNNELS option? Around Mobil, AL, miles in advance, signs warned of a tunnel. I was twitchy the whole way. I do not like tunnels. And I think this one went underwater. I was on a bridge over some big body of water for miles before the tunnel. It would have been very pretty, again, had it been light.
Anyway, while driving I listen to my IPod. My ITunes has not worked for a few years so my sister loads it for me. Good and bad. She doesn’t have all the music I do, but she has stuff I don’t. I play it in alphabetical order, well ITunes version of alphabetical order at least.
So I get Billy Idol, Billy Joel and Billy Ocean, followed by that Godzilla song. You know, Go, go Godzilla. I have no clue who sings that song. It starts with a B or C, because the next song that I know is a Cranberries song.
