That'll be 50 cents, that'll be one dollar, that'll be a dime...


What is it with toll roads in Florida?!?!? We just got back from a 5-day trip to Orlando (part conference, part fun) and our hotel was about 3 miles from the convention center. Three miles and two tolls, that is.

You pay to get on the main highway, you pay to get off. And, if you drive long enough, you pay just for the heck of it! One place 50 cents, one place 75 cents, one place 25 cents, and every once in awhile a whole dollar. Can't they just assess everyone 5 bucks a day and be done with it! I mean, you barely get your car back up to speed and there's another friggin' toll booth. Drives me nuts.


Other than that, it was a good trip - Ed and I and Gnorbert had a good time.

Outside of the stupid tolls it sounds like a great trip. :) I hope it was warm.

I wanna go to Disney World. ;-) Seriously, I hope you had a good time in spite of the tolls. I love your "redecorate" - just in time for Spring!

I wonder how much gas you end up wasting just trying to get back to cruising speed. Frustrating.

Spring is in the air... such pretty flowers and colors everywhere I look. Love your new header :) Happy Spring!

Every one seems to be sprucing up there blogs....I like your new look....I remember when I was in Fl. orlando the driver was my daughters sister in law, and she had a pass, and would just show pass and scoot on through....of course that was a few years ago....

When I see your little knomb it makes me thing of Norm the little knomb that Peggy from Hidden Haven had, and people signed up to let Norm come and visit with them...then we wrote in a journal, about his adventures....He went all over the USA and Australia, and England, Canada...it was fun, I had him for Christmas.....we took pictures of him with family, and what ever we did Norm went with us....Crazy Huh? But I wish I could have seen the whole journal, when he went back to Peggy.....
