News Flash . . . Mission Call Missing!

For those of you waiting to hear (to laugh) about our mission assignment, the wait continues! Although it was mailed to Julia on Friday (22nd) and today is Thursday (28th), still, no news! We'll give it one more day, and then one more, and then one more. What can we do? Patience is a virtue and after all the "virgin" pina coladas we've had in the last 3 days, this has to be a test! Be patient people! (and slap that pony express pony on the rump!)

We pulled off the road on our way out of the "Keys" to stand in the sparkling blue water one last time. The water was warm, the skies were blue, the air was hot and so were we!

Highway 1 out. Notice the water on both sides of the road.
As we neared Miami, the clouds began to form and we knew we were in for it. We drove 340 miles today, half of it on the beautiful road out of the Keys and the other half in a drenching rain storm through Miami.
It's all good. We're tucked neatly in bed, thanks to Tom Bodett leaving the light on for us!
So far we've driven 6,600 miles!!! Tomorrow we'll visit the Kennedy Space Center and stay in Orlando. I hope Julia doesn't call during the space tour or we may be on the evening news! I'm not sure what I meant by that but don't they say you can't use your phone on the plane? What if an ignition switch activated? That would be bad.


  1. I heard a news report from Miami yesterday that hurricane season is starting on the east coast--awesome! Hurricane George threw up again last night, so we're getting drenched over here, too. Gross.

  2. Looks so fun Mom. I'm sure you'll get the call soon. Can't wait! Love, JB
