Willoughby, Ohio.

Navigator., originally uploaded by iMachias.

Earl and I are settled into the Days Inn in Willoughby, Ohio tonight. Earlier this week he proclaimed to me that it had been entirely too long since we went on a weekend long road trip so when he got home early from work today, we hopped into the Jeep and headed west.

I was originally going to head us into Michigan so that we could meet up with blogger friend Terry, but Terry is out of town on work so we are going to save that trip for the fall. Therefore, I have no idea where we are going tomorrow. The only constraint is that we have to keep the ride home on Sunday under 12 hours.

Earl is the principal navigator and has been wired with GPS. As you can see in the photo, he is very attentive to road signs and other important markings.

Always Right Behind Me.

Brother and Sister., originally uploaded by iMachias.

My sister is two years and five days younger than me. She’s my lifelong friend and has always stood behind me in both good times and bad. When we were kids she always joined in on my schemes, whether we were driving through town in a snappy crap-brown Vega, organizing a “parade” of our cousins and such for the grown-ups or riding bikes to town and back.Today she celebrates her birthday.

Happy birthday sis!
