And.... I'm Back.

Fun thoughts, from traveling.

To the lady who pulled onto the highway from the shoulder with a whole two blinks of the turn signal... might want to check to see if there doesn't happen to be oh, i dunno, ANY TRAFFIC FROM BEHIND!!! I understand, the phone call must've been really important. I can't really pretend to be all that angry, because I did get to see Mom make the 'You're #1, buddy!' sign. Haven't seen that one in awhile...

I no longer seem to have the butt-skills necessary to drive for extended periods of time. Pffft, I needed a marker to re-draw my crack, it seemed...

Seeing new folks recently married into a rather large family is always interesting. They're walking around with a thousand yard stare on their face, and no one's told 'em that quite a few folks haven't even showed up yet! I got a kick out of introducing myself several times, with multiple names, and different family tree references, just for kicks.

I spent an unusually large amount of time this reunion trying to figure out which new kids belonged to which cousin or aunts/uncles. Good times.

That chick who speaks to me from the GPS can get kinda annoying, especially when she decides that I've made a wrong turn. I just want my tacos, lady, cut me some friggin' slack!

Day-dreaming about going back to work to unwind from the vacation is a cruel, sick, and twisted joke.

Ain't they fun? Vacations are more work than they are worth sometimes.

First, welcome back and so glad you had so much fun and stayed safe!

Second...do you mean to say that you have survived a vacation AND a family reunion? WOW! Marines truly are incredible beings.

P.S. Glad you discovered how much fun it is to try and confuse the newbies to a large family. HeHeHeh
