I’m blogging at you from St. Paul, MN, where the family and I are having a mini-vacation. A bit burned out from the seven-hour drive from Chicago, but I’m well. Whenever we go on a road trip, we budget enough to rent a new-ish car to take along. Pretending we own a new vehicle is part of the fun. The rental place didn’t have the Chevy HHR we requested, so we got a Pontiac G6 (which I’ve never heard of before). It rides nice, is about the same size as the new Impalas, but the wife is too short to be able to drive it comfortably. She has that problem with most models.
It may sound funny, but its nice to have a car that actually has a CD player in it. Our regular cars a each fourteen years old and only have cassette decks. How primitive. The three of us each got to chose two CDs in turn for the drive, and we were rocking the whole way. WE stopped for a bit at Castle Rock in Wisconsin to climb around the base of the sandstone pillars and take lots of pictures. I’ll try to post some this week.
Now that we’re up here, we’ll visit the Mall of America and then tool around in an aimless and spontaneous manner peculiar to people who plan out their lives in minute detail - except when vacationing. So, don’t expect new for the next couple of days, my brain is turned off.
