Update, of sorts

I don’t know how everyone else writes their blogs, but I write mine during breaks or while I’m running a report or some other time consuming task at work.  I type them up in word and just leave my word doc open all day until I finish the blog then I copy and paste it into blogger.  Well I’m telling you this story because I started a G-rated blog about the honeymoon that my Bride and I went on that has vanished.  I don’t remember closing the document out, but I do remember titling it and saving it to my blog folder on my desktop.  I have no idea what happened to it, but it’s apparently gone.  I’ve learned that when I have to rewrite something it never turns out as good as it was the first time I wrote it so I’m not even going to try.  Sorry guys and girls, I know I’ve disappointed you.  Below are some random thoughts to help fill the disappointment.
Driving from Rome GA to Auburn AL and then to Key West FL in one day sounds good in theory, but really sucks in practice.  That’s a lot of time spent in one car.
It took me a good week to get back into the swing of working again, and apparently even longer to get back into the swing of blogging.
If you don’t like eating boogers, don’t pick your nose with your tongue out.  Not a true life experience, just a funny thought I had while driving the 17 hours from Auburn to Key West while my bride slept. 
It cost a lot to drive the entire Florida Turnpike.  Especially if you have to stop for gas.
You can use frequent flier miles for more than flying!  We used my miles to get a nights stay at a super nice hotel in Orlando.
Susannah, thanks for the awesome recommendation of lodging in Key West.  We enjoyed it so much we had to send you that post card.
Dreaming about winning the lottery never seems to get old.
Today starts the busiest time of the year for my industry, followed by the slowest time.
The more games Auburn wins the more nervous I get before every game.  Each win gives us more to lose.
I had a great weekend last weekend, saw the Globe Trotters Friday night and then took my bride to see the Auburn/Arkansas game Saturday, followed by another fun day date with my bride at the Hummingbird Festival.
Apparently walking a dog with a pink leash/collar combo, and a shirt with a rhinestone Hummingbird and a Huge flower isn’t enough for people to realize the dog is a female and to not ask me “What’s HIS name?".

Fried Oreo’s aren’t as good as one would think…  I take that back, they’re pretty much exactly what you would think.
I’m waiting on Charity to blog about our visit to see them and the Shrimp Festival so I won’t have to try and remember anything and I can just copy and paste her blog.  She’s better at it than I am.
