50 States Rants, Raves...
It must have been late last night, because I forgot the Weekly Wrap Up. My apologies!
RANTS, RAVES, MUTTERINGS AND MUSINGS
Quilter Girl and I have moved the Canadians to top of the list of friendly countries. They are always ready for a chat. England and Germany get silver and bronze, respectively.
Minnesota wins the worst roads of the country so far. Expansion joints that jar your teeth, cracks, weeds growing in them, gravel scattered on the pavement in turns, and those awful detours.
Being a Las Vegan (not a Vegan!) we suffer with humidity above... around three percent. Okay, maybe twelve.
Someone yesterday asked us, for the first time, what we're going to do after the Adventure. Still, haven't a clue.
Thanks to the three deer this week, two on one occasion, who crossed the road in front of us. The single animal was a bit of a panic stop, but not a screaming in terror event. Anyway, thanks for getting across quickly. Lots of signs of deer who didn't make it. Remember, look both ways. Oh, that's right. You're a deer.
Amazing how, in the middle of summer, we're seeing campgrounds a third full, restaurants with few patrons, and no lines into events. Sketchy economy, for sure.
