The road ahead


I ventured again into Columbia today, which is normally a ten minute trip. Unless you are driving in someone's wake. The gravel road from our house to the main road kicks up so much dust you literally drive blind and I haven't eaten this much dust since I lived in Lubbock. How's that for a metaphor on starting life over again in Missouri?

Yikes. How long is that gravel road?

It's two miles from blacktop to our house BUT 2/3 of the way is being paved! In the meantime, we have to detour through miles of other gravel roads but I'm not complaining. When it's finished, we'll only have .6 miles of gravel and dust to deal with.

Excuse me, I have to go brush my teeth again...

Will it be paved by the time we get there....I hope?
So what are you doing for your morning lattes and evening walks?
