Hello! Today I'm guest hosting for the sweet and lovely Angela Brown over at In a Pursuit of Publishness. Hop on over if you can! Angela is a gifted writer herself, and I expect we'll see her work being published before long.
We had a little rain yesterday morning. It did little for the heat, but the birds were extremely happy, as I'm sure those deer in the forest were as well. Let's hope for more rain in the near future, and a little break in the heat.
So, I haven't had a vacation in a LONG time. Probably wouldn't want to drive anywhere in this heat, but during an ideal summer I'd dream of packing the car to go to Colorado, or maybe the Grand Canyon, or perhaps the Badlands up in South Dakota. Planning trips are fun, but kids complaining in the backseat for hours on end kind of ruins the dream. My mom used to do it though. We'd get in the car—and this is back before iPads and things like that—and endure ends miles of being strapped to a hot vinyl seat in a not-so-big tomato red Pinto. Do you remember playing games like Slug Bug, or trying to make semi's honk their horns? My favorite thing was to read the highway billboards: EAT AT HANK'S CAFE-JUST A 1/2 MILE DOWN THE ROAD~~GIANT CINNAMON ROLLS-NEXT LEFT~~KIDS! COME SEE THE BIGGEST DINOSAUR BONES IN THE WORLD-CANDY, FUN, SWIMMING, GAMES! "Mom, can we go there?" "No."
If you could go anywhere today, what would it be?
