I'm Becoming a Republican

No, wait...that's not quite the truth. The truth, however, is that I am going to be a very frustrated Democrat deep inside Republican territory over the next four days. After an exhausting 14 hour duty day today (our aircraft broke in Las Vegas this morning and I just now arrived back in Portland at 10pm after getting myself home) we're leaving in the morning for Boise, Idaho. It's a 400 mile trip on I-84 which we actually enjoy driving. Mason is going with us so his grandmother and auntie can see him. We'll be there until Wednesday. It's always a test of one's ability to remain calm and poised in the midst of evangelical arrogance and red, white and blue. Ugh. In fact, you'll see a lovely little Don't Ask, Don't Tell expose on what I mean right here...that's the way they do business in Idaho...So, that's it. No blogging or such until the middle of the week. You know I love ya.....

Have a swell road trip. Don't speed! It's not worth the few extra minutes.

When the fire gets too hot, the smoke gets too thick or the water gets too high, we will get out of there....oh wait, that's work training coming through....I guess it is all the same....we will evacuate if needed!

We will have a great time! I am looking forward to our road trip!

I hope you guys had a better time than expected and that everyone welcomed the new child with open arms (and Milk-Bone dog biscuits).

Have a safe trip Lewis. I'm glad your taking Mason and I would love to be going to Idaho this summer. The fiddle festival in Weiser should be coming up soon.

Greg said...

Good luck to all of you!

Safe travels - a bit too late, but hey, it's the thought that counts right?
