>Driving Ms Daisy

>(deep breath)  8 days – 3000+ miles.  Madison, WI – Indianapolis, IN – Columbus, OH – Dayton, OH – Cleveland, OH – Harrisburg, PA – Cleveland, OH – Chicago, IL – Indianapolis, IN – Jacksonville, FL

The US Youth Soccer Month tour is taking me everywhere.  And FAST.  Have seen some cool people and places along the way.

Favorite story from yesterdays 15 hour marathon drive:  IN KENTUCKY (use your imagination here)  Pull up to a gas station that doesn’t have another car at a pump (red flag #1) and proceed to fill my tank.  Walk inside to get some water and coffee, as it’s early in the morning.  The woman working the counter is sitting back in her chair smoking a cigarette (red flag #2–how long ago did they pass laws in most states to stop smoking inside of public places??!!??!).  She smiles and in her cracked voice says ‘mornin.’  I ask where the coffee is.  She says “ours is pretty old, you should try the restaurant” and points. I ask for water.  She says “again, you don’t want our water, I’d see the restaurant” (add Kentucky drawl here.)  She points again.  Woman working restaurant counter is in one of her 80th years and kindly helps me with both water and coffee, she says “you must be a beginner” as she hands me a half coffee/half milk glass.  Moral of story:   I love Kentucky!

Yes, I did buy chocolate here.  And yes it is even better than you can even imagine!
You have to love the marketing efforts done here in Hershey, PA.  Check the light posts!!
Myra, Kelly, Jim (check photo in Myra’s hand) are my awesome peeps in Cleveland that I stayed with!
