What Was I Thinking?!

Tomorrow is Friday, April 2nd and Good Friday.  For some reason I was thinking that Easter was on the 11th - the same day as my friend Linda Bucci's Birthday.

I also thought Easter was the 11th because my daddy passed away April 8, 1974 and I buried him the day before Easter.

Well, I was ALL off track this year.  So what's the problem, you ask?  Well, I scheduled some special classes for a group of employees this month for "the day job", and I scheduled the first one for Friday - Good Friday - and it's being held at one of our offices (Santa Clarita) about 100 miles from home.  

And even THAT wouldn't be an "issue" for me, but remember, I live in Southern California and will need to take the following freeways to try to avoid some of the Good Friday traffic which will undoubtedly include people heading out of town to Las Vegas, people going to visit relatives and people just going wherever they go on Fridays in California . . .

 and then back to the.  

And around 4:30pm I'll reverse these directions and head back home.  

So while you're home dyeing Easter eggs and preparing your menu for Sunday's Easter dinner, think of me tomorrow sitting on those mean freeways just trying to get back home to a glass of Pinot Noir! 

Maybe I'll break down and pay to drive the toll road on the last stretch home.
Happy Easter if I don't see you again before Sunday!

I don't envy you driving those "roads", especially on a holiday weekend. I hope you get home quickly and safely to enjoy your glass of wine! Happy Easter.

Be safe,
Linda

Oh my goodness. I have been on those roads a few times in rush hour traffic. Will be thinking of you for a safe journey to and from. That wine will taste so good when you get home....you just might have to have a second glass.

I know little about driving and even less about driving on CA roads, but I do understand the concept of rush hour traffic, so.....here's hoping you have easy and safe travels. And enjoy your workshop!
Happy Easter my friend.

Well friend, it's now Easter morning and I haven't heard a peep from you (pardon the pun!). Freeway burnout perhaps? I know you made it there and back. Happy Easter!!!
