Greetings from Wytheville, VA. I just had dinner at the Sagebrush Steakhouse and Saloon. I had the Sagebrush Salad.
But my big news is that I’m in love! I never thought it could happen at this point in my life. No, I didn’t meet some cowboy at the Sagebrush and then bring him back to the Best Western. My new love is Tom! Remember Jeff’s friend Tom-Tom? Tom and I are now on a first name basis. It took a while for me to trust him. At first, I cast him aside, but he hung in there and got me through some tough times – like the Asheville Bypass. Holy Cow! I would’ve never made it without him.
Tom is a little insecure. He becomes a bit insistent when I veer off course to stop at a McDonald’s to go to the bathroom. “Turn around at your next opportunity” is what he says. Pretty cute, huh? At first, he clung to my windshield but I finally put him in my lap where he seemed pretty happy. Tom has made me see that I can still navigate the world as long as he's with me. We make a great team.
I can’t wait until tomorrow when Tom and I head up I-81 to Bethesda to meet my family. Until then, I wonder if he likes spring colors in extra-large cotton underwear.
I hope he doesn’t snore.
