I am glad that certain of my friends can't see me right now. Being convinced I was a zombie, they would certainly insert large quantities of lead into my brain.
On a side note, my my kids are the stuff of legend. They didn't have one breakdown.
I had a day of ups and downs. Waking up to a beautiful morning sky over the Gulf, up.
On the road before 9am, up.
Spotting a large helicopter by the side of the road and stumbling upon the Air Force Armament Museum, way up.
There were many cool aircraft on display. As we drove past I saw a SR-71 Blackbird parked out front and yet I somehow still managed to avoid leaving a skid mark as I changed course. For those that don't know, I spent a large chunk of my childhood obsessing over that particular plane. To stand there with one was borderline bucket list. Very cool.
A down was finding out I broke my Kindle yesterday. I had put it into my back pocket while carrying luggage up to the room and heard it snap when I bent over to pick up a fallen bag. No external damage, but when I tried to use it today, the display was hosed.
Another up was finishing I-10. We decided on a last minute course change that took us to Jacksonville where I-10 turns into I-95. That means that I have now traveled the entire length of I-10, coast to coast.
The final down to report tonight is the apparent death of my keyboard for the touchpad. I am typing this on the touchpad touchscreen. It keeps screwing up on me and my patience is flagging after the long drive. More later. Perhaps even some pictures.
