Temperatures have crept back up into the 40s and the sun was out yesterday, making for a nice afternoon. I grabbed my gloves, hat and keys and set out for a walk around the neighborhood loop. The fresh air was wonderful and it wasn't too windy. It was really quiet as well - I only passed 1 runner and there aren't many dogs to disturb the stillness. I figured everyone was either out shopping, or taking their car through the car wash down the street. No, seriously, there was a loong line for both bays every time I passed the place; to & from church, the store, walking. Apparently it was 'Wash Your Car' Day here and I missed that memo. I didn't feel like waiting in line and was glad I didn't this morning when I work up to the rain. Good ol' Mother Nature comes through again.
Anyways, that's not the point of this story! As I was walking around the loop (thoroughly enjoying myself), a van slowed and the couple inside asked me for directions to the Civic Center. Apparently, their GPS led them into my neighborhood claiming they had arrived at their destination. Ha. I not only knew where they were heading, but gave them excellent directions to actually get there.
As I was congratulating myself on having a good grasp on the local landmarks & roads, a second car also stopped me and told me the same story! I don't know what brand of GPS these cars had but it needs some serious updating.
|look - I did so well it even has my name on it ;)|
