Maryland is also pretty, but we weren't there long. We were right out of there and on to Pennsylvania today. This life has been good for my geography as well, I had no idea that Pennsylvania borders Maryland. Apparently Pennsylvania borders several states.
And here's something fun and interesting that Mr. Trucker taught me: Did you know that all the even numbered interstates run east and west, and the odd numbered ones run north and south? See, you're a lot smarter already...
My cousin, Terry, from Michigan emailed me about my silly sounding place names. He is of the opinion that Ohio and Indiana have the lock on the most silly sounding names, but I would beg to differ. My home state of Wisconsin has all the weird "Wau" names: Wauwatosa, Waupaca, Waukesha, Wabeno, Waupaca, Wautoma, and then there's MilWAUkee and PeWAUkee...
Mr. Trucker was talking to my brother, Steve, on the phone the other day and happened to ask Steve how the real estate market is in his area in Michigan. Steve said "it's like trying to wipe your ass with a bowling ball". I thought it was a great comment, so I'm including it here, because it's MY blog, and I CAN!
Now, to the title of this post. Here are some oddities from our travels so far:
|Goin surfin. That's Cookie Monster driving,|
Sponge Bob in the middle, and you can't
tell, but Homer Simpson's on the outside.
|This guy needs to change his last name, or|
rename his business, for sure!
|As I was saying...|
|Guitars...or snacks? What a choice...|
This was in a truck stop/convenience store
|Umm.....I'll have a...PINK one.|
|Mr. Trucker's sandwich. It cracks me up how he nibbles|
so evenly. He was upset that that piece of turkey
was hanging out in the picture.
Here's a shot or two of the town where we're spending the night: Mt. Holly Springs, PA.
