Today we tried to outsmart the toll roads, but gave in after 2 1/2 hours extra driving time. I was thinking I paid enough taxes to keep the roads in good condition. It seems that I have to pay to drive on a road with roadwork and speed limits of 45. Where the speed limit did rise to 55 I drove 65 and everyone else drove 75! I’m talking Chicago area. Now I know what my friend means when she says, “Don’t worry, I’m from Chicago” when we’re out shopping and she almost misses her turn!
At lunch, Tom had a crown break while eating french fries. Arg. Do we have to find a dentist now?
Our route took us through Valparaiso to visit Tom’s aunt and uncle. After dinner they took us by his cousin’s house. A cousin he hadn’t seen in about 40 years. We all had a great visit. We got back to our hotel late and went to bed. I didn’t even stop to blog. Sorry.
