Trip Notes

* We drove past a town named Brilliant, Alabama. I’ll say nothing more on that.
* On the way to Auburn, we saw a sign advertising Wesley’s Booby Trap. Truly. I presumed that it was a bra factory. On the return trip, Mike spotted a sign at the same spot that was seeking applicants for topless dancing. Glinda begged us to stop, but we refused.
* We also declined to stop for lunch at Bubba’s Pizza. Must be the Italian branch of Bubba's family.
* And finally, although the drive through Alabama – particularly north AL – was absolutely beautiful, we’d sure like to encourage the folks in charge of highway signage around Birmingham to stick a couple of more directional signs in the ground. It’s far easier to transition through Dallas. Both going south and then back north, the signs seem to disappear leaving a driver going “huh??” I could have sworn that in the background I could hear the lyrics to Hotel California – “You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave.”
