How was your weekend?

Mine was ...long. A lot of driving was involved. Also a wedding and a reception. A lot of rain too...

Go to the Extended Entry to check out my Weekend Travelogue.

First, on Friday after work, I drove down to my brother's house in Ohio.

Leg 1: About 260 miles (4.5 hours)

I was supposed to have internet access here, but his lan-cable was accidentally cut on Thursday. He forgot to tell me this before I drove down, so I was unable to post my Filthy Lie on time. *grumble, grumble*

Saturday morning, my brother and I got ready and left to meet up with my Grandparents and Aunt; who drove across Canada (the short way) to where my cousin who was getting married lived.

Leg 2: About 190 miles (3.5 hours)

Of course they weren't at the Motel 6 when we got there. (And no one had their cell phones on...) But they did show up shortly after we started calling around, so we were able to freshen up a little before the wedding. I had hoped that there would be some internet access there as well, but no luck.

From there, we drove up to the church where the wedding was being held. Somewhere along this stretch, we used my brother's Bluetooth to post my Filthy Lie, only half a day late.

Leg 3: About 30 miles (half an hour)

Then there was the wedding! Congratulations Mike and Diana!!!!!

It was a very nice service. My cousin Diana got all choked up during her vows. Her dad (my uncle) did the same thing at the reception when he gave the married couple a toast/blessing.

After the reception (which was just around the corner from the church, so no new travel leg) I drove my brother home.

Leg 4: About 220 miles (4 hours)

Just before we got to his house (about a mile away) this happened:

60,000 miles! YAY!

Kind of something to celebrate since it was having my Jeep hit 50,000 miles that inspired me to start this blog.

The next morning, Sunday, I drove home.

Leg 5: About 260 miles (4.5 hours ...or so)

And then I was home!

I still had to work a half shift to close the store Sunday night though...

If I would've known you were in Michigan, I'd have thrown a tomato eastward in your honor :-)

WTF Man, you were 5 miles from the Weenie house.

How come I never get visited?!
