I Lied

I believe that I have stated that I would never do this again.

I lied.

Tomorrow, Megan, Martha and I will head to Charleston, SC  for Megan’s one-month, post-surgery check-up. We will then begin the seventeen-hour journey to Houston, arriving Thursday afternoon.

I will drive back alone on Friday.

It’s what dads do.


Blogging will resume on Saturday.

About Ray V.

Living between Aiken & Nashville, TN, USA, I like to share what I am looking at, thinking about or listening to. I refer to this as the view out my window. Thanks for stopping by.

      Yesterday, Aiken to Charleston to stopping point in Mobile, AL…Just over 13 hours and 803 miles. Long day. Today we drive to Baton Rouge to have lunch with one of her life long friends who is attending LSU and the its on to Houston. Total criving time today, should be just short of 8 hours. It’s a fun trip and we are talking about things and I get to listen to her playlist, which has several songs from mine … hmmm? The dog is doing great and I’m grateful that we have this time together.

    I’m always impressed with people who can do long haul drives – which is why I have immense respect for truckers!

      Thank you, Sandy… she’s 7 weeks post surgery and doing great. The wires holding her jaw shut were removed last week and she’s back doing her clinical rotations at medical school. She’s a tough gal…like you appear to be.
