What a weekend!

I hope all of you had as good a long weekend as I did!

I hung out with old friends, made a new friend, got in plenty of boating and a minor road trip to boot plus I had my first pizza in a while (been dieting), I am lightly burned, mildly sore and quite exhausted this morning!

So, it was a great weekend!

On a minor side note, never run low on gasoline in central Illinois. It is shocking how far you can go without seeing a gas station. Not seeing a gas station for 30 miles or so would not surprise me in the least in say west Texas but on the interstate between St. Louis and Chicago it was a bit shocking, at least to my little mind. For a little while there I had a bit of sweat forming at the thought of a long walk in lonely country in 90 degree temps. :)

Anyway, it's a good thing I am back at work now so I can get some rest! My powerfully rippling keyboard muscles were getting a little soft after the long break so we can whip them back into shape now!

Prepare to swoon at my rekindled keyboard muscles ladies, prepare to swoon!

Just hearing about your rippling keyboard muscles is already doing it for me!

Seriously, you were out in my neck of the woods and you didn't stop by, for shame.

No swooning here :)

Can't wait to see what you've got up your sleeve. Besides rippling keyboard muscles.

You don't have to tell me about the lack of gas stations. We ran out of gas outside of Mount Olive (in between Springfield and St. Louis). Then we has got a flat tire when we pulled off the road. The good news was the police and the service repair shops were very friendly.

What's worse than no gas stations? A surplus of them! Here we have more gas stations than South Carolina has Baptist churches, and that lulls a person into complacency. idk how many times I've coasted into a fill station with the truck gasping on fumes. You just keep going because "oh, there's a nicer one five miles down..."

I know one thing you can find on the road between St. Louis and Chicago. Dwight, IL :)

That town name just makes me laugh.
