Planes, trains, automobiles and white pants after labor days

October 12, 2012

Well, we on our way! Sorry, introductions first! Im Nancy and my “almost sister” over there is Robyn. Two women friends for 30 years (if you dont count the first two when i didnt really like her) due to the lovely fact that my brother fell in love with her. Two woman close in age (shes older, but looks younger) who have passed that stage where doormen and busboys called you “miss” and now refer to you as “mam'” , when if your face is red its not because you had too much sun or cocktails, two woman who have been there for each other : through those “can i get a good price for them on craigs list” days when the kids were in their teenage years, through marriage squabbles, boyfriend breakups, through boils, locusts, feasts and famine. Weve been through everything, well almost everything. Which is why we decided to do this trip. Another adventure. But one, well, that we have some say in. So here it is, welcome to our blog A TALE OF TWO ALMOST SISTERS-ON A ROADTRIP.

hey, no snickering, this is no ordinary roadtrip. Hell no. This is THE roadtrip. Literally, cause its the only one we’ve done. This is the premise:were going to visit my fantastic, wonderful, lovely, couldnt-ask-for -a-better-daughter Hilary at school in Athens, Georgia. The University of Georgia, where she is a sophomore and a Kappa Kappa Gamma. go Dawgs!! Anyway, enough of that and back to the story, after spending a couple days with Hil, we are renting an SUV and…wait for it…..wait for it: DRIVING BACK TO CALIFORNIA. Stopping along the way in tennessee, mississippi, alabama, texas, etc to search out antiques, flea markets, and people with stories. Speaking of stories, did ya notice our picture? I wanted to say its Robyn who is really not much of a morning person. But you would know i was lying cause she would never wear white pants. Anyway ….. Unbeknownst to her – her flight left but her butt did not!! We tried to get a bit more of her story, butt, we could not.

We have a quick layover in Denver (ryan if you are reading this, get your mind out of the gutter). Robyn looking out the window of 10c, says ” where is the john denver Rocky Mountain High? This is brown and flat!” so rather than explaining the seasons and topography of colorado, i told her we are in idaho. She had a potato. Everyone is happy.

Denver airport, 1 1/2 hour layover. Hmm what to do? Cocktails!! Margaritas specifically. Go us!

Have you ever watched people at an airport? What s their motivation, their thought process? Let me pretend i was so drunk i pulled my outfit from the halloween costume bag? Really?! Lady with the ” im so in love with rerun of little house on the prairie reruns that im forever going to dress like Laura Ingalls? Laura ingalls didnt want to dress like laura ingalls! And you buford. Overalls? Really? Are the cows behind you family or livlihood… Oh sorry, its the misses.

Day 1, we’ve only just begun
