ON THE BACK BURNER

Spt.17

Today was all Interstate 64 . From the front seat of my 2006 Chrysler Town and Country, I saw The St. Louise arch,Bush stadium and Barnes Jewish Hospital. And a morning rush of cars. I just kept my eyes on the signs and did what they told me to do. I was lucky. I was always in the right lane to do whatever it  was. I did pass some really interesting semis. I couldn't recognize most of what they were carrying, but I did see a truck load of red fire hydrants. I took me a few minutes to figure out what all of those red things were. Then there were the half houses followed by a Pilot car. Half a house on one truck bed and the other half on the truck behind. The flat beds take up an entire lane .Line to line. The most obvious carriers on the road were: 1. UPS. One cab pulls 3 trailers. Then 2. Fed Ex. One cab pulls 2 trailers. 3. Prime. Yes! Amazon Prime trucks are everywhere. Their color is like the Tiffany Blue. You recognize it immediately. Their cab only pulls one trailer. They are probably still growing their delivery system. I ran into my second rush hour traffic-- the evening rush. Louisville, Kentucky. I had no idea that Louisville was such a busy city. The roads have not caught up to the volume of cars. It was as bad as the Dan Ryan in Chicago .I went upscale again. I did an economy motel last night and I will not do that again. My room was clean but so shabby. No coffee pot in the room, no tissue,just about nothing but the bed and bathroom. I'm back to my comforts. Fridge and micro wave in room. And coffee maker. There are just somethings that a traveler needs. Tomorrow it is I-75 all the way home. Maybe two days or three. I'll check with Noodle.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
