A surprise entry

As many of you know I try to get John to write more. He is a talented writer, a lot funnier than me (he makes me laugh everyday, some days so hard I am actually crying). Yesterday after posting I was checking my email and I found one from John that was part of the post he was working on. He wrote it on the iPad and didn't have what he wanted to save it so he emailed me the post. I'm not sure why he didn't go back and get it to add into his post. I did ask his permission to post it. So add this to the post of a couple days ago. So here's Johnny....

The second day
And on the second day, we drove out of the fog.
We were banished from the kingdom and decided to head south and east in  search of sunshine. I figured if we left after noon we would avoid the densest fog, and I was right. We could actually see for over 500 feet when we left. (California puts markers on the freeways so you can calibrate your loss of vision.) Fog lights all the way to Bakersfield. The next morning was even worse, and we had to leave before noon. I hate getting up before noon. The navigator assured me we would drive out of it as we left the valley, and it came to pass. We drove into the sunshine at 55 mph, as fast as we could legally go in California and about all the truck could do hauling the rig up that pass. It was awesome. 35 pounds of turbo boost, and we left that fog behind. Sweet


  1. Haha! Oh I know all about that 'tule' fog in Bakersfield. When I was growing up, school could be delayed a few hours until the fog lifted. The bumps that are between lanes of the highway we called 'driving by braille' :)

    Quoting Joanne Woodward, wife of Paul Newman:
    "Sexiness wears thin after a while, and beauty fades but to be married to a man who makes you laugh every day, ah, now that's a real treat."
    I'm not sayin' anybody's particular sexiness or beauty is relative to this quaote but it's good to know for when that time comes... if ever.
