Saturday's Adventure

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  As Cam mentioned yesterday, we went on another big adventure this past weekend.  I thought I'd at least start telling you about it today.  Ready to get in the Husky Recreational Vehicle (HR-V) and get going?  OK, I've got ...

"Hey, wait a minute!  I was going to call shotgun!"
"Oh, this will be fun, Maggie!  We can play travel games together!"

"... at least I thought it was going to be fun..."
"Yeah, well, you aren't gonna let Mom navigate, are you, Dad?!?"
"No, Mags."
"Hey, c'mon.  I'm not THAT directionally impaired!"

"I'm not going to touch that one."
"Yeah, so if Mom says to turn left, turn right -- right, Dad?"
"Something like that!"
"Funny, you two."

Since my job of navigator was taken, I thought I'd spot interesting things out the window instead.

Before too long, we saw one of Mom's favorite billboards:

"2nd friendliest yarn store in the universe."  Makes you wonder what #1 is!
(Very effective advertisement!)

Then I saw this:

"I wish you'd play travel Othello or something with me, Maggie!"
"We aren't going to Quivira again, are we?  Are you sure you don't need me to navigate?!?"

Mom and Dad said no, we weren't.  I decided to keep watching out the window - in case anything was amiss out there.

We all liked this sign:

Sign for the town of Claflin.  "If you can't stop, smile as you go by."

You can't help but smile!

But then ... I saw it.

Actually, there were several.

All over the place.

Like an invasion or something.

I knew I was paying attention for a reason!

LOOK!

A SUBMARINE!!!

"Do you see what I have to put up with?!?"
"Great Dane in the morning!  It's a SUBMARINE!  And they're all OVER the place!  
We're being INVADED!  HIT THE DECK, EVERYBODY!!!"

"That's it.  Why don't you just stay down there for a while, Mags?"
"Fine. But if they had been real submarines and not oil storage tankers, you all would be thanking me!"

Anyway, despite the submarine attack, we arrived safely at our first destination:

"Wowzers!  This looks like a cool place!"
"What an adventure!"

It WAS a cool adventure - and we were just getting started! More to come, so stay tuned!

Yours sincerely,
