Has this ever happened to you?
You're driving down the highway enjoying your this case, "Dancing Queen" by Abba. I'm singing along at the top of my's one of my favorite songs, after all!
You're in the left lane on the highway and you look at the car in the right lane next to you, and the lady in the car next to you is singing along, too!
I was listening to 93.9, Kiss FM at the time. I guess the lady in the Mercedes next to me was, too :-)
It brought a smile to my face!

This Laundromat Thing Ain't So Bad

The washers and dryers here are ENORMOUS!!!
A week's worth of laundry for a family of 4 all fit into ONE washer!
I've divided the clothes among 3 dryers to save a little time.

So What's Up With This New Look?

"Why the new look, Major Mom?"

Many of you have known of my quest to find a blog layout that took advantage of the space on the left AND right sides. As much as I enjoyed the color schemes in the previous layout, enough was enough.

When Dave started putting together his new train blog, he was exploring the Blogspot layouts and came across several layouts that included a "stretch" variation.

So I reached out and grabbed one of those. There's a little bit that I still need to get used to, and once I have my desktop computer back in a couple weeks (our goal is a 1-2 August delivery in Nebraska), I can pretty things up a little more.

I like the ability to make my pictures appear a little bigger, and hopefully you don't have to scroll as much to read my pontifications... :-D

S.C. Route 441 Near Dalzell, SC

Okay, if you're a USAF Safety Officer, stop reading!
I drilled at Shaw AFB this past Sunday and Monday. I left the office at about 4pm and drove east from the base, behind a cold front that brought thunderstorms to the base about an hour earlier.
So I was behind the line of thunderstorms driving out of town and saw this beautiful cloud. I photographed it through my front windshield with my phone and then e-mailed it to my blog.
Yes, I was driving while I did it, but I didn't have to type anything more than "v", the first character of the e-mail address that sends the pic to the blog.
This cloud is GORGEOUS and I had to share it with the world.
Today was the last drive I'd be making between Shaw AFB and the Raleigh area, so today I took a more scenic route that didn't seem to add more than a couple minutes to my trip. It was nice to drive past the cotton, corn and tobacco fields. The variety was certainly nicer than what I'll be seeing in Nebraska!
