Things I Never Knew I Missed...

Last week, as I was driving from Tampa to Orlando, I was reminded of something I experienced for many years in the Midwest: bugs on the windshield.

For the last five and a half years, I haven't had to scrub the glass with that convenient squeegee every time I fill the gas tank. Maybe it's because it's a different climate, maybe it's because the pollution in the Baltimore/Washington D.C. has killed off smaller life forms. But it brought back memories of long drives on open roads, with the occasional Flying J or TA Truck Stop along the way. Long live the buggy windshield!

Great entries, kiddo! I'm enjoying them. By the way, did you know about Joy and Drue's new adventure? Here's their blog addy: Go to Ship's Log to read their posts. Not sure I get it completely, though.
