Easy as A, B, C . . . from BB
Here we are . . . on the roadCagain! On the last Tuesday in August, we drove to Cedar City to see the Wednesday, Thursday and Friday morning showings at the Shakespeare Festival of the original play readings they do every year . . . some of the best stuff they have! At the same time, we drove from there to St. George Thursday and Friday evenings to see Tuacahn=s shows, The Starlite Express and Mary Poppins, then back to Cedar for the a.m. readings. Saturday, we had only one more Tuacahn showCThoroughly Modern MillieCso stayed in St. George, only to get RAINED OUT that night.
We couldn’t stay over to pick it up the next week, because Sunday we began a three-day trek to Alabama to see Herb=s mother, sister, brother and son. We FINALLY got thereCtotally wiped out, but with a safe arrival . . . late Tuesday night. Spent some family time, and even managed to throw in a movieCthe new Percy Jackson flick (actually better produced than the first one, we thought).
And now, Monday, we’re on our way back . . . left Sunday morning, and hope to be back in Utah by tomorrow night. Meanwhile, we’ve passed through bits of Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama, and plan to hit Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Nebraska, and Wyoming on the way home, though we could touch a corner of Kansas as well (look out, Dorothy, and Toto tooChere we come).
Road conditions and peculiar driver habits in various states got me to wondering about the laws Utah may or may not have in conjunction with driving. Here are some funny ones I found in other states:
- In Illinois, the law is that a car must be driven with the steering wheel.
- California law prohibits a woman from driving a car while dressed in a housecoat.
- In Memphis, Tennessee, a woman is not to drive a car unless a man warns approaching motorists or pedestrians by walking in front of the car that is being driven.
- In Tennessee, it is against the law to drive a car while sleeping.
I’m gonna wanna stay home for days and DAYS once we’re back! No more travel for me . . . well, not until we go back mid-September for the Afall@ season at the Shakespeare Fest . . . oy!
See you day-after-tomorrow for Wednesday’s WIPs!
