Road Trip

Wait a second, what's this?

A pile of clean pots and pans and plates and glasses?

Westy's Big Blue sleeping bag airing out?

The coolers all clean and fresh?

A bag of flip-flops?

A box of Westy accoutrement, ready to be packed into Westy's nooks and crannies?

Beach chairs?

The excavating of what were once Westy -- but now are household -- but now are Westy again -- drawer items?

Lists . . .

. . . upon lists?

A packed shoe bucket? (Hey! Mistah left no room for my shoes).

A packed booze bucket?
.
.
Could it be????
.
.
You better believe it could be.
.
.
Road Trip!
..
.
Sunshine State, here we come.

And not a moment too soon.

So, how long would it take for you to swing on by Michigan and pick me up? Can't be more than, oh, 750 miles out of your way, right?

Two Dad Bottle Openers for two people?? Sounds like a party!! I hope the sun shines every day and a February heat wave hits the southeast just as you motor on in. It's 14 in New London this morning - get out of here!! We will miss you but look forward to hearing all about it. Stay strong, Westie! Love from martyjoco

Jealous!

Go Westie, Go Westie, Go Westie GO!! I love all of these photos, they are so YOU. Your lists are completely insane, but because you have proven yourself to be the single most organized sistah on the planet, you must be getting it right. What in the name of beans are those things you have to buy? Chayoas? (chairs?) Tarpolians? (tarps?) Dude, you're weird.

I am so happy that you will soon have warm sunshine. Warm sunshine is very, very good for the soul.

Safe travels!

The moment I saw that chair shot on fb, with the traveling kitchen accoutrements, I knew it was time to say-- Bon Voyage! (I'm exit 149 if you need another driver & I don't have many shoes!) Can't wait to see your FL pictures.

Me, You, or Ellie said...

Woohoo! Go Westy! It's about time Mistah and Misus! So happy you're heading south. Who (over the age of 16) doesn't like a road trip, ya know? Especially in a rig like yours.

Enjoy every minute, or as close to every minute as you can manage. We know you've got your spices so everything else should just fall into place....

Don't forget...you are most welcome to visit me--waterfront condo, private guest suite with balcony, fridge full of beer await you. I am on the way to lots of places and a couple of hot showers (oh yes, pool and hot tub) might feel good after a few days on the road.
