Taking a break from driving in the rain, which is fine because it gives me a chance to report in on my latest blogger meet-up. I spent a delightful and delicious couple of hours this a.m. with none other than Patty from Fit by My 50th and her charming hubby. It was kind of like a 2-for-1 special in that they are both lovely people, gracious and authentic–the kind of people you feel like you *know* the first time you meet. In other words, my kind of people. This will NOT be the last time we meet!
(thank you, Patty, for the gift of your time, your smile, and your thoughts!)
I’m still undecided on whether or not I’m going home today. I’m planning to stop in Birmingham to take a close-up look at the Vulcan Statue, which is featured in a series of mysteries by the late Anne George. I’ve seen it from the interstate, but there is apparently a nice park and observation deck now. With the rain and clouds, I’m not sure how much I could observe, but I’d like to check it out.
As far as rain, it is still with me. In a few miles of absurdity, it even rained while the sun was out. How cruel is that!
I did, however, finally come up with a bright spot to all the rain. It only took me 2-1/2 days, but I realized today that my car is not coated with dead bugs. And for that I’m thankful.
Time to get back on the road. Wishing you all a Super Sunday!
(Kathy, if you’re reading this, know that I’m thinking of you as I sit here at the Talladega exit. *G*)
