OK, it’s time to hit the road to see what I’ve found lately. First off we need a ride. What shall it be? We could take a plane. No, I don’t think so.

We need to dress up a little. How about a flower for your button hole or behind your ear? This should do nicely. Pick one of these.

I’m getting a little hungry. Pizza, a burger, chicken wings, tofu? Maybe not.

The day is just sailing by so fast.
