Saturday-On the Road


I have been up since about 6:15am but since I am on the road and have new things to see and do, I just have been out and about this morning and not been online much. However, I am back at my room in the motel and have had breakfast. Mmmmmmmm Shoney's is right here at the motel about 150 yards from my room door. I had the breakfast buffet and was it ever good. Also, I needed a little cash so I went to my bank chain's branch here in town and got a little hit from the ATM. Went over to Wal-Mart which is on the other side of my motel from the restaurant. There is a huge mall around this site and it has everything. I could literally walk to any type of store of office that I might need on this trip. Harrisonburg is a cool place and I have not been here for many years and it has changed significantly. That is both good and bad but you know how that goes.
I suppose the happy couple back in my hometown are getting the last minute jitters about the wedding today. I am really happy I am not there and in everyone's way. I will be meeting another friend today for dinner and that is going to be fun. I plan on doing a whole lot more of this kind of thing as time goes on. I have spent way to many years just letting life pass me by. Well, not any more.
Ok, it is about 1:30pm here in my part of the east and in Virginia more specifically. It is a really beautiful day here with temps in the 70's and lots of sun, blue sky, and an occasional puffy white cloud floating around. It is way nice. I am just fiddling around and been out some just exploring the area, but did stop in at Staples and got me a USB mouse for this Pesario. I do not use the finger pad thing very well. Just have to get used to it I suppose but it is easier to use the little mouse. I got a pretty good deal on one, it is USB, infrared and was only about $20. Oh, and I have been using the new version of the Yahoo IM that I mentioned a while back as having some bugs. I think they have most of the probs fixed cause I can log in where I could not when I first downloaded it. I have not used it much to see if there are other things that act funny, but I will post if I find any new ones.
It is time for my nap so I am gonna see you all a bit later.
It is a bit later and I am going out to dinner with my friend in a short while. I have been around the motel since I got back from sight seeing and have been using my new mouse. It is really cool and works like a champ. I think technology is very cool. I am even listening to a radio station from my hometown that is streaming over the internet. So cool to have such fun toys to play with.
I will head out will head out in the morning to my sisters for a short visit before I head back to my house. She lives about 2.5 hours from where i am right now and then it will be about a 3 hour drive home to NC when I leave out of where she lives. Man, what a life huh? Next Saturday, I am going to my buddy's place for a memorial day celebration, but only up and back in the same day, not a weekend as before. Check ya later after I get back from eating.
