On traveling...

Today we're off to have a girl's day out. My daughter and the mini-chicks will hit the closest manicure salon for pedicures for Nanna and Momma and manicures for the mini-chicks.

As forecast, we drove all day yesterday in the rain. Monsoon rain. As in total-lack-of-visibility rain. I have a few suggestions for those who drive in monsoonal rain.

One: If you insist on driving twenty to thirty miles per hour slower than everyone else, please stay in the right lane. That way you'll lower your chances of being rear-ended in the rain by fifty percent.

Two: Don't take your life in your hands by zipping from lane to lane. I can't see you even when you stay in one lane, let alone two.

Three: TURN ON YOUR LIGHTS! I'm not worried about whether you can see. But your brake lights just might make the difference in whether I rear-end you in the rain. Or your headlights in my mirror could prevent me from pulling out in front of you and getting us both killed.

Four: If you're afraid of driving in the rain, or the visibility is that poor, GET OFF THE ROAD. The time you spend having a cup of coffee or just relaxing may save your life.

We arrived safely and had a nice evening with the family. May you all have a wonderful weekend.



  1. Sounds like MISERABLE conditions! Glad you made it safely.

  2. Enjoy your day Anny:) Glad you arrived safely!

    Today's WV could be interpreted as 'biker babe'...byqrbeg

  3. I can sooo relate to those driving requests. We are always on the road for one thing or another.

    Have fun with the kidlings!

  4. Good road rules to live by:) Have fun!

  5. I've never had a professional pedicure or a manicure. Come to think of it, the last time I used nail polish was for my wedding day...I'll be celebrating 22 years this summer. LOL

    Sounds like fun, though.
