We May Need to Call That 1-800 Number

Janie asked me to do a guest post. So, hello, readers, this is ThatManSheLoves typing here!

As many of you know, I have been working up in the Northeast for the past 3 ½ months. Wasn’t sure I was even going to see my Brown Eyed Girl, much less Elder Son and Younger Son or the Wonder Dogs (the ZZ Crew) for Christmas. But, miraculously, after a 6 hr (120 miles @ less than 30 mph av. speed) drive to Pittsburgh, 14 hrs in the Hades of Crapenental Airlines, I arrived - better late than never - in Midland, 7 p.m. on Christmas Eve. All of this to turn right around and fly back to Pittsburgh, the Sunday (our 7th Anniversary) following Christmas w/ my darling Brown Eyed Girl.

I finally wrapped up my NE project on Tuesday and the Brown Eyed Girl and I commenced our trek back to Texas on Wednesday (New Years Eve) with great intentions of driving straight through to Nashville, spend a few days Eating, Drinking and being Married.

Well, it’s now Saturday night, and after four days on the road (and yes we did eventually pass (emphasis added) through Nashville), we are a mile or so outside of Hope Arkansas and by the time I finish this intro we will cross into the Lone Star State. I finally got my Brown Eyed Girl out of her Tylenol Sinus Daytime drug induced coma (an Intervention of sorts) and finally have her driving and I am going to read a bit and sleep a bit before I finish this travel log of our adventures and misadventures since Brown Eyed Girl’s last Blog. Brown Eyed Girl’s ready to hit the Blogosphere again and is missing you all. However, it’s her turn to drive, my time to sleep - finally.

So stay tuned for the rest of the story – I will be back.

WoW! What a treat! I'm speechless, but impressed that you would do it! Now I understand why... you're the perfect reflection of Janie, lol. I mean that in the best way. Looking forward to you posting again. Give Janie my best. Hope she's got a book to listen to & keep her awake.

The cemetary is on the right about 150 yards off the road. Not Really! Hope you make Dallas!

Be safe. I am SO impressed that you are doing this for her. You ARE the man.

Hey, "ThatManSheLoves". Good to see you, and happy new year!

I guess it says something about how far behind the curve I am, technologically, that I was amazed by the concept of doing a blog post while riding in the car. I guess that's because I tend to forget about the middle ground between my cell phone's T9 text entry and a laptop, where smart phones with QWERTY keyboards live.
