We Escaped With Our Teeth Intact

Sweet Jesus and Sweet Home Alabama! Finally, our truck is done!! After five weeks of laying on comfy beds covered in crisp white sheets and fluffy duvet covers, heads on pillows full of down, watching TV and eating takeout, we have finally been sprung!

The departure is bittersweet since I love nothing more than watching movies, reading books, flipping through magazines, napping in the middle of the day, taking pictures, eating takeout and generally doing diddly-squat, but now it's time to get back to work.

Granted, I wouldn't have chosen to take a five week vacation in Louisiana where the most exciting thing that happened was the impending hurricane or talking about the Saints and if they were going to win on game day. And although the evacuation was inconvenient, time consuming and costly, I was happy that we wound up in a town that actually had people with teeth. I am NOT kidding about this. I know it all sounds oh-so-unbelievable and all, but the people who worked on our truck were seriously lacking a full set of teeth between them; and there were four people involved not counting the wife who also didn't have teeth or the good sense to wear a bra (even though she seriously needed both).

Tomorrow we get back on the road. Not sure where we are going or even what we'll be hauling since we don't currently have a trailer, but I can tell you one thing, the Big Easy has even less appeal to me now than it did before.

Although Brad Pitt still does live there...

Glad to hear your truck is fixed! Hope things get back to normal soon for you two.

On the road again ...
Just can't wait to get on the road again ...
Goin' places I may never see again ...
Oh I can't wait to get on the road again!

(I certainly hope you're singing along to my rendition of Willie Nelson!)

All right! Now...get busy. I kid. Yes, from enforced leisure to work, I would have preferred to lounge on clean sheets and read magazines myself. But I hear you about the 5 week hiatus from work - and income.
