    That meant driving all the way back (about 160 Miles) in the dark, on a doughnut that could not exceed 50 mph.

    To say that I was unpopular with my fellow eastbound travelers is an understatement. When 80-90 mph comes up on 50 mph through twisty two-lane roads, you can sense the hostility.

    Thanks, and hope the morning finds you more upbeat.

    (Noticed btw that I was westbound going back to El Paso, not East. And it was a rental car, not a tents car. Late weekend posts often tend to lack in accuracy for some reason;.

    And here we'd all begun thinking that you had taken on an exciting second job with the circus to pay off your bingo addiction debts.

    I did not follow my Midterm Elections ban. I am imposing a double time out on myself now before I get one from Jason.

    Very much doubt that would happen.

    Well, an infraction - not a time out.

    Infractions over infarctions...

    Is an infraction part of the double secret probation?

    Most of my infractions have been undeserved.

    In other news, I had a Pop Tart this morning. First I've had in probably a year. Strawberry, obviously.

    Did that cause you to get an infraction?

    What I thought were strawberry Pop Tarts ended up being raspberry. I'm mildly disappointed.
