Trailers

Summer hasn't officially arrived yet, even though the temperature topped off at 93 yesterday around here. Many people are making their summer travel plans. Going here. Going there. I've been to Oneonta, NY but never to Chattanooga. Maybe someday. I've traveled to the West Coast a few times. Been back and forth through the Midwest on numerous trips. Got to know the New York Truway like the back of my hand. Have ventured up and down the East Coast and been all over New England, but the part of the country that I've spent little time in has been the Deep South. With the exception of Florida, I've vacationed in none of those states. I've driven through a few, but that's about it. If I ever retire, some people say I will someday, the Carolinas seem enticing. East Coast, near the water, mostly comfortable temperatures... there's a draw there. Mom and Dad never moved away from Maine but for totally different reasons. Mom never got the chance. Dad? It never, EVER entered the man's mind.
Me?
Right now?
I just don't know.
Maybe I could get a job as one of those comedians on a cruise ship...
I'm a good dreamer.

  5. Keep dreaming, though I'm with you on moving to where the winters are milder and the summers are not too hot. You don't get seasick, do you?

  11. The life of a traveling comedian doesn't sound attractive. Always just one bad joke away from unemployment, and alway a need to have a speedy wit. Just go spend a long weekend in Chattanooga and see if you want to come back for more.
