    Phone Call

    Its me.  I'm in a rental car heading to Pittsburgh.  I need directions from the Trioboro bridge.  Yeah.  To Pittsburgh.  Well, its me, and this guy, and this woman who was just telling her father our names in case anything happens.  I gave her my card, uh huh.  So... I agree, we don't want to drive through Manhattan.  Right.  We are heading for the Triboro.  Take that to the Major Deegan, and look for the signs for the George Washington Bridge.  Right.   Yes.  Then what?  Toward Trenton on 95?  Yes, ok.  Yes, our flights all were cancelled.  This woman is a stewardess, flew here from London, trying to get to Cleveland.  We're going to rent another car when we get to Pittsburgh, because this guy is only going to Pittsburgh.  We met up at the rental counter.  Yeah.  From 95 take 78 across Jersey and into Pennsylvania.  We asked for a loaded SUV but all they had was this Hyundai.  We're going to pass Reading and Allentown.  Yeah, we're planning on going to the parade tomorrow.  What are your plans?  Well, we'll be in the car for awhile, no doubt.  78 merges into 81 toward Harrisburg.  And then this Breezewood jog thing?  Have I been to Breezewood? Of course I have.  Well, get off 81 at Exit 52 and follow the signs to 76 -- and its the PA Turnpike all the way to Pittsburgh then.  Ok, sounds good.  We're renting another car when we get to Pittsburgh.  This woman, is she from Cleveland.  No, Pennsylvania.  Conneaut Lake or Conneautville, like our Conneaut but on the other side?  Really?  You're related to everybody in Crawford County PA.  She doesn't know your name.  That's alright.  I don't know what we're doing tomorrow after the parade.  Alaina has this class she is teaching, but after that, I don't know.  I'll call tomorrow when I get into town.  Say hi to Gina.  If you don't hear from me, you can always write a story about this.  I dunno, just make something up about the other people.  Yeah alright.

    Sorry, but this is a little too disjointed for me. But classic Bacher.

    And just so you know, it took us 15 1/2 hours to get to willoughby. This trip included the following:

    1. Doing donuts in the A&P parking lot in some backwoods town where the subway and Quiznos were closed at 8pm. (I had no idea you could do those things in a Hyundai with a parking break!)
    2. Asking a Hispanic guy at the A&P where the restrooms are. He led us to the back of the stockroom where they had men and women rooms and the flight attendant said that she still was not sure about us, but would rather be with us than left in that A&P.
    3. A GREAT Pizza Hut somewhere in PA at 11:00pm while we watched 2 accidents on the sideroad and them closing the Penna Turnpike.
    4. Only traveling 35 miles per hour all 400 and some miles.
    5. Witnessing no less than 10 cars slide off the road and witnessing no less than 25 cars in total which were involved in accidents.
    6. My phone going dead without a charger at 4:00am, just as we arrived in Pittsburgh where the only car rental place was supposed to close 3 hours earlier but by some miracle was still open. We were # 3 in line to get a car and, yeah...there were ONLY 3 cars left!
    7. Sleeping 2 total hours in 38 hours...Guiness and Dunn Irish Wiskey tastes real good with no sleep!
