On The Road Again . . .


my favorite
it has surrounded me
for the past week

green corn
 more green corn
 really lots and lots
of green fields of corn

i made a trip to iowa
to visit my brother
made a stop in rockford on the way
to see some college friends
and a stop in hampton
to visit high school friends
to get where I was going 
 i had to make the
drive through chicago

next time
i will take
along a co pilot

home again

looking forward
to each of you

be well my friends

Hi Lynne - That sounds like a nice trip. I don't think the ride through Chicago would have thrilled me if I was alone. On some of those x-ways my hands tighten so hard on the wheel if I don't know where I am going.
I hope your weather was pleasant as far as the temperature.
Glad to hear you are home safe and sound !!

Getting away is so important.

Oh that Chicago, not fun to drive through. Go around if at all possible and always give yourself a couple of extra hours travel time, because there is sure to be a traffic jam someplace. Hope you are enjoying your visit.

aaah, glad you got away.
driving past GREEN fields is nice...but through a BIG CITY like chicago...probably not so nice.
a co-pilot sounds like a good idea!
