Road Trip Compilation

Sorry to all you Feedblitz folks, but that was fun. I'm compiling the whole trip and comments under one post, so it doesn't take up so much room! I think I'm a fan of mobile blogging, even if it is text-messaging instead of emailing in (I'm too broke to pay for email on my phone). I don't know how to make it take headings--it normally reads the subject line, but my phone doesn't send a subject line.

And hey, it was in Mckenzie, TN. That's the funny part.

    I read another blog this morning with the same title, but when i went back to comment, it was gone.
    It still shows up on my bloglines that you recommended-i wonder why that is.
    I hope you guys have a safe drive and that your 'vacation' is restful- when i visit family, there is usually more running around than actual time spent with friends and family, so it is anything but relaxing. blessings to you, and have a great christmas! Sorry we will miss you guys :(

    technology is amazing.
    finished that book.
    still didn't bite me.
    was really good.
    am going to read it again.
    hopefully over christmas.

    "fear and rebellion" It's still there...and I still don't know what I'm afraid of or what I'm rebelling against. I didn't give you grief with those two did I? Or at least too much grief...?

    oh! are you going to be at Grace anytime? And I know you'll be incredibly busy, I'm sure, with everyone to see, but would you come to a cigar meeting with the society?
    and are you going to be going to Grace?
