Route 66?

There's a billboard near a freeway on-ramp in Michigan with a picture of Jesus that says, "Are you on the right road?"

My Uncle Brian sarcastically feigns suprise and confusion, "What? Isn't this I-75 North?"

I have flown out of so many airports across the country, I'm quite sure I could find each and every one of them without a savior billboard. Eventually. Unfortunately, my internal clock runs on beach time and that pesky compass of mine is broken. I did break my four year streak of missing every flight booked, but just barely, pulling up at the gate with twenty-two minutes to spare.

After I arrived in Tucson, the gentleman at Hertz asked if I had a car preference. I told him anything American would be fine, but when he couldn't find any keys, he upgraded my rental car to a new, red, convertible Mustang with Sirius Satellite radio at no extra cost. Does it get any better than that?

I had no idea my dad did that, but somehow I'm not surprised. :)

Just thought you should know that the only business trip I went on alone for work, the rental car?

A red mustang convertabile. Granted, I was in Springfield Missouri at a Hud property. But I had a Mustang, a company credit card, and room service at my disposal.

Enjoy Tuscan. It's 35 degrees here in ye ole Michigan.

Now that I know what you're driving, I'll meet you at Colors, on Speedway. We've missed happy hour, though, so maybe you'd just like to hit the desert with a sixpack and some tequila. wear that white linen dress.

Kelly: I hope you had better luck figuring out how to get the top back on! (it's only in the 70's here) ;)

Jock: I waited for an hour then headed to the casino... ;)

Rain: thankfully it's short - the wind doesn't do much for the 'do. Nice to see you again!

Sarah: for you, I'll honk twice ;)
