On The Road Again

We leave soon for a tour of the Maritimes. Doing a feature for GO RVing, an association specialing in all things RV.

So, true to form, I'm losing my mind trying to get everything assembled, trying to imagine every scenario (I will do doubt leave out the only emergency that actually occurs), and counting clothes to avoid doing laundry as long as possible. The boys have taxed themselves beyond all bounds, as usual. "Where do I sleep? Where do I plug in my computer?" pretty much sums up their contribution to the prep work.

I'm fighting a losing battle with the ants in my house, and finally caved and called a Bug Zapper place. By the time you find an ant on your toothbrush, you wave the white flag - hard.

We'll be wired for blogging, so you may hear from my at random points. I offered to get Webgod Jeff to guest blog in my absence, but his reply was pretty succint: "The only things I could think to blog about would be things I hate and people that piss me off...". Such an upbeat guy.

Many of the summer editions of magazines have some great fiction pieces (see 'Nine', below), and if I can find more I'll link them. Or, if you're at a newstand and see a fiction issue of nearly anything, it makes for great summer reading whether you're on a dock or a porch.

So, anyone willing to take bets? How many times before the family truckster reaches the Quebec border will one member of the family either (a) sing, or (b) play a CD or MP3 of Willie Nelson's "On the Road Again" before said steel chariot veers wildly off the road into a ditch? Of ocurse, all occupants will be safe, just some bruised psyches, is all.

And oh yes, what's going to happen to Lorraine's own personal edition of "Hell's Kitchen" while on this road trip?

Lorraine's "Hell's Kitchen"? Back to the old favourvite, fast food joints. Sell the fridge and stove. No need for them anymore. Old habits never die. Yes, the old Willie Nelson classic just a humming, "Back on the Road Again" as the old four wheeler rolls up to the window, "Can I take your order please"? And Lorraine knows the order off by heart. She never missed a beat.
