Gentlemen, Start Your Engines

First today, I just want to say for the record that I can't stand that song, My Umbrella. It is quickly replacing the Delilah song as the tune I most love to hate.

Well, in about eight and a half hours and so many minutes I will hit the road for Ohio. I can hardly wait. I got up early again this morning. I finished packing my too many things into my too small suit case. I cleaned out the car. I packed into the car all of my CDs that constitute my favorite road music. I went over the details of caring for the dogs with Billy Boy, who's work was cancelled again today because of rain. I would not want to be a painter like him unless I could get all inside work. We double checked the living room ceiling and the roof to make sure it's not still leaking. It's not.

So, nothing to do now but muddle through the rest of the work night and hope that the time goes by quickly. It will be hard because I am just not into being here for obvious reasons. I have work to do that I just don't want to do. This is natural, I'm sure.

  1. Will you have access to a computer while you're in Ohio? Hope so! Have a safe trip, and have a great time. Hugs.

  2. Thank you, X. I will have access to a computer, but I may be too busy with family things to post every day. I will try though.

  3. can stand under my um-ba-rella...ella...ella...ay...ay.

    Yeah, I fucking hate that stupid ass song...but it's fun to annoy people with...heh.

  4. Hmm. Maybe it is just a little tiny bit better than the Delilah song, which the local radio station has played three times in the last eight hours...

  5. Safe travels, Don! I hope you have a grand time visiting your family.
