Thems would be my directions. I'll be coming in from the west on Rt. 120 until it hits 41, then south on 41 as above. Hoping to make it there around about 11:00 a.m.

Just checking in for last-minute posts on this...

Got two potential headaches this morning:

1) Weather is lousy

2) We have a CAT living in our garage. Don't know whose it is. Spent better part of an hour yesterday -- time that I could have spent waxing my car, or finding cure for world hunger, or something -- trying to get the cat to leave. No, we're 99% sure it hasn't had kittens somewhere in the garage or anything like that; it just figures it might as well stay in the garage instead of going out into the rain (which has been coming down for about four days straight so far).

One good thing: At one point the cat crawled up into the rear suspension of the Bonneville, so all we could see was its tail sticking out, so we thought, "Great! We'll just roll the car out and honk the horn; that should do it!" This was when I found the battery had died, since I haven't driven the car in about two weeks, so I was able to put the charger on it and get it all ready for today.

Thought we had the cat out yesterday, closed everything up, went to bed, got up to fetch something from the garage at midnight, opened the door, flipped on the light, and there'* the damn CAT again...

Hey, I like cats and I grew up with three of them, but this one wasn't invited, and it sure as hell isn't friendly. (Has a growl like a mountain lion.)

Oh, well, needed to vent. Will probably make another effort to get the darn thing to leave, then hit the road.

P.*. Yes, we're not total meanies: when we found the cat was still there last night, we put bowls of milk and tuna fish out for it overnight...

Anybody want to fill everyone else in on how it went and what all happened.

As you all could tell, I was unable to make it. I decided because of all of the bad weather (flooding around here...not sure about there) it probably wouldn't be a good idea to drive all that ways when it really isn't that important, not to mention my sisters Graduation open house was today and my parents really didn't want me to miss it. I really wish I would've gone now, but eh, whatever. Hope you all had fun. I wanna hear about it. If it would've been a little closer I definately would've been there.
