In Which I Venture North

So what’s new?  I’m up early…AGAIN!  That’s the beauty of being 2 hours earlier than normal time at home.  Your body still gets up when it does.
I turned to HBO and saw an old comedy special starring the guy who played Harry on Home Improvement.  Wow!  Gotta love the 80’s.  Or maybe it was the early 90’s.  I don’t know.  I didn’t bother to look it up.  It was too early.
After about 10 minutes of watching television, I decided there was no use in me sitting around like that.  I had nothing to do…except to get in my car and drive.  So I get all my luggage and go check out and go.  I did see my first gas station with E85 fuel before I left Las Vegas.  Too bad I wasn’t driving a flex fuel car, or I would have saved $0.60 per gallon.
The drive was fairly uneventful…except for a few things.  I stopped in Mesquite, Nevada.  I had to go pee.  I also wanted breakfast.  So I go to the Walmart that is advertised to have a Subway inside.  I guess there isn’t a demand for Subway breakfast in Mesquite, Nevada.  The Subway was closed up.  However, I did find an interesting sight in the Walmart bathroom.
You don’t normally find a floral arrangement in a guys bathroom unless it is a REALLY fancy restaurant.
As for breakfast, I had to get greasy at McDonald’s!  Oh well.
Past Mesquite was the most interesting part of the drive.  I passed over the Virgin River.  There was a mountain range ahead.  I didn’t see the road curving.  I didn’t see a spread between the mountains.  That’s right…I had to go through them!!!  It was the Virgin River Gorge.
Once I got to Salt Lake City, I got to my relatives, and then we went to a service where there was a blessing for a new baby one of my cousins had recently.  I must say, it was an interesting experience being in an LDS service.  The more I do things like that, the more I want to do.  I like different experiences as long as they don’t serve to harm me.
We then gathered at another family member’s house for lunch/dinner…what do you call that?  I know between breakfast and lunch is brunch.  So is this one linner?  lupper?  sunch?  dunch?
Overall, it was a good day.
