Early this morning dad, Sister Pam, and I loaded our bags into the trunk of dad's car and hit the road heading to Wisconsin.
At first it was smooth sailing, but by the time we reached the northwest corner of the state it was raining pitch forks and hammerheads on us. I thought we'd all be washed away or even worse - - - but I didn't mind 'cause Sister Pam was driving.
About the time we stopped for a potty break and a bite to eat, the rain stopped - - - just in time for me to start driving. Wasn't THAT thoughtful.
I noticed that ONE of us had a mega ginormous purse and the other had an itsy bitsy teensy weensy one. I shan't tell you who belongs to which purse - - - but I WILL admit that the size of the purse is directly proportional to the size of the owner. Furthermore, dad doesn't CARRY a purse and we don't ask if he keeps one in secret. ;-)
The one with the humongous purse defends it by avowing that large is good because it carries so many useful things.
Like, who do you suppose had a full pair of scissors in her purse when dad needed a pair this evening??? Hmmmm??? Mega purse or mini pouch???
And besides, can you see who stowed away in the satchel and will be makin appearances in some future Wisconsin posts?
I rest my case - - - the case of whomever may happen to have the oversized handbag.
Turd Furgeson also made the trip. He is very handy at nap time, isn't slimy nor scaly, and is very quiet.
We arrived at our first Wisconsin destination - - - Eau Claire - - - by five PM where we gladly crashed into our hotel room.
Pam continued texting. (There MIGHT be a hint about the purse scenario in this photo - - - maybe)
Dad looks young and spry for his 81 years, doesn't he? And just check out those tanned legs. Man, once that guy started wearing bermuda shorts he's taken to them like a duck to water!!!
Well, the adventure is off to a great start. You'll be hearing more very shortly. We've got a few bloggy surprises up our sleeves, the first of which will appear here tomorrow.
