Traveling again... what else is new?

Sorry I've had so many "I've been too busy to write" posts lately, but it's true.  Mike went back to Vegas last week, but I'm staying East for another few days--raising hell as usual.  My sister Lori and I just got back from a fun as hell weekend in Maine that included my quirky lesbian aunt and an awesome biker bar. 

As you probably know, Lori is a friggin' riot.  I swear that after people meet her, they look at me and go, "Yeah, whatever."  We have a great time traveling together; I'll tell you all about our most recent antics in Tuesday's post. In the meantime, here's a repost from our first cross-country trip in 2010.  If you're a new-ish reader, you'll especially enjoy this since chances are you've never seen it.

New stuff coming on Tuesday...

We always do what we're told

9:00 p.m. eastern Oklahoma

Writing this from the lobby of a Day's Inn in eastern Oklahoma. Yes, we finally made it out of New Mexico! I have a lot to tell you about our drive through the Texas pan handle and our stop in Oklahoma City, but we have to get back on the road--we're hoping to make it to Little Rock tonight.

So yesterday we passed this sign as we were driving along.

Good thing we had our scales in the car.

I wasn't too happy with what I saw.

Of course, the weigh stations are intended for truckers, so Lori waved them over.

They were totally into it! When Lori told the first guy he had to get weighed, he said, "You want me to put my truck on those scales?"

Why are we traveling with scales, you ask? Because I'm neurotic about my weight. My thought process was, I always gain weight when I'm in Albany and I don't want to balloon up this summer, so if I have my scales with me, I can stay on top of the situation. I know.

Anything for a laugh.

The main thing is you and your sister are having a blast together. I am glad you are having fun.

I really don't get along that well with my two sisters.

I, myself, have just purchased size 12 jeans - a major milestone at 55, after having been overweight most of my adult life. I'm looking HOT. Just ask my girlfriend.
