I got packed up on Friday April 28th

Bob has painted the laundry room a really BRIGHT shade of yellow which is hard on the eyes (he says it is the same as the bathroom, but it isn't), and has also built a shelf for folding laundry. He's also mowed the lawn, got gas in the car and made one last run to the dump. He threw some things in the suitcase this morning (and I think he packed the sunscreen in the big suitcase because it is not in his overnight bag), and did a last wash. He has taken two suitcases and the scooter and put them in the car.

The cats are roaming around - they know something is up. Or at least Bob says they do. Cindy was meowing a lot more than normal. She's the vocal one. Gravel Gertie is on the top (she's really feral and we can't touch her at all)

Cindy Block is the grey and white one on the next to the top shelf, Orange Crush - one of the males is next, and on the bottom is Crunch, the other male, who is a year older than the rest. Heidi Ho is the fifth cat and she isn't in this photo - she's a muted calico.. The cat sitter will come every day for an hour and brush and feed the cats, and clean their boxes.

We left on Tuesday, May 2nd. I turned off the modem and put my computer in my bag and went downstairs about 9:15 and we left the house at 9:30. Only one afterthought - I forgot to get my car keys so Bob went back after them.

Soon we were approaching Morgantown MD where the PEPCO power plant is located.

We were going over the NICE BRIDGE. I think that is a funny name for a bridge but of course it was named for someone whose last name was Nice.

We stopped a a cemetery in Bowling Green and took some photos (we do photo-documentation of cemeteries),

and I then thought we would eat in Ruther's Green as we got there about 11:45 - I saw a Wendy's was there which I know Bob likes, but it was behind a truck stop and Bob just didn't understand when I said how to get there (he doesn't hear very well as he is partly deaf). so he got on I-95 instead.
