Road Trip, Part 1

What a fun day today. Bear with me, though, because my day started when I got up at 3:30 a.m., and I will only be posting a brief note, with the rest to follow tomorrow.

I got to Gaye's a little after 6:00 a.m. and we headed to Indianapolis. It's always a good road trip when Gaye packs our lunch... the monkey bag for me, and the penguin bag for her!

Seems like a lot of our road trips involve spotting interesting Volkswagon beetles (okay, maybe not a lot, but at least two). Today, we were behind someone towing an old VW. It looked a lot narrower than I remembe the ones from the 70s. We both think this one may be from the 50s? Judging from the giant 53 on it, maybe it's from 1953? (or is that too obvious??)

A few years ago, we passed a truck with several of the new model VW beetles, and all the cars had dots on them. Really.

Shopping was already well underway when we got to the Coffee Break Design giant warehouse sale. First things first though. Time for a pit stop before shopping. And nothing says efficiency like being able to have an eye exam while in the bathroom...

Stay tuned for part 2 later.... Energy Depletion warning is sounding...zzzzz
