Waking up from a comfy sleep in the hotel room at 10:30 a.m.

To my dismay I discover I missed the continental breakfast that stopped being served at 10. Instead, I order an Egg English Muffin with Grits from the restaurant next door.

Bri, Eric, and I hit the road in the white 15 passenger van. It’s hot and sunny but stays cool inside with the A/C blasting.

While Eric snoozes in the back seat Bri and I listen to music and chat about whatever. I feel like she’s kind of a sister in some ways. I never had the time to really get to know her until now. She’s laid back and funny like the whole ELO crew is.


Somewhere in Port Royal, Virginia we happen upon a hole in the wall diner/gas station called Horne’s. Immediately, we both know we have to stop. What an old gem this place is. Full of all the classic candy and random gift shop stuff – a diner with a bar.

Back on the road I take the wheel and keep on a straight path taking 17 all the way to 64. Tunnel traffic is a pain per usual.

Finally home after unloading. Napping in Ana’s room while she’s at work. Elvis curls up next to me.

Dinner: Vegetable Fried Rice with String Beans.

Watching Gran Torino (2008) – terrible acting but heartwarming.

After Ana gets off work we catch up and make a little love upstairs.

Sleep 3:30 a.m.
