Thanks Somebunny! It's the frustrated stand-up comic in me. I just find it easier to do sitting down and anonymous.

~~~ I'll be here all week, folks! Bah-da-bup

Mr. Google suggested going up (or down) the Eastern Shore of Virginia/Maryland/Delaware (aka the Delmarva Peninsula for those not in the know) instead of around DC. It's a much prettier, less stressful drive.

So he did GG, so he did. Didn't even look at the map, just the mileage, when I wrote my post. We are usually heading to either Williamsburg or beyond to FL, so I figured we would still take I-95 the entire way. We did return home from Williamsburg once via the DelMarVa - I had to suck it up to go over the Bridge-Tunnel but actually enjoyed it! (As a kid my Dad had to hurry off a lift bridge with a less-than-attentive operator. Tires had to roll into and out of a space about a mile wide to my kid eyes.) If I went our usual route south it would add about 75 miles for a 600 mile trip. I like your's and Mr. Google's route better, but he still has never driven I-84 in CT.

Beagle's greeting me when I got back from a long trip yesterday. She ran around in circles, smiling and squealing like a puppy! Oh, and DH doing the same thing!

I-95 goes ALL the way...to Miami.
Thanks for the correction. And the education. I am not a driver so have no idea about highways except even numbers run west to east and odd numbers run south to north. I also learned why those little bridges over gullies have names. You are ten miles from the nearest town or city. You have an accident and it is a marker for the first responders to locate you. If whoever calls in an accident says it is near the John Smith Bridge North, they know exactly where to go to. Saves time and possibly a life.

Sounds like your Mum has found herself a keeper. Having someone whose company you enjoy can make for a really memorable vacation. Hang in there. She will be home soon with lots to tell you and pictures.

Dawg, you crack me up!

My latest smile was listening to my baseball team's manager in his post-game presser. He was so excited about the team's rookie pitcher's first big league start - and win! I listened to the game too, and the kid was great. Hopefully we hang on to him for many successful years. Unfortunately, once they're wanting a huge contract we tend to send them elsewhere. BUT it will be fun while it lasts!
