I know I've mentioned before how much I love maps - have since I was a child. I've always been pretty good at navigating but the roads in the Northeast go willy-nilly. They aren't laid out in the familiar Midwestern square miles. In other words, it is easy to get turned around. Plus we were going to be driving in some heavily populated areas. Bud decided to buy a Garmin GPS Navigator for the trip. I lost my job to Susie.
Susie? Well, since the Honda's name is Sally Hemings, we decided the GPS would be Susie Garmin. Sally and I get along fine. She likes it when I do the driving. Susie and I on the other hand have a love/hate relationship. (It has a lot to do with my being replaced by her.) My opinion is: she isn't always right - just as I am sometimes incorrect in my direction giving.
I did my share of driving from Newport to Long Island. Bud and Susie took over before we crossed the RFK-Triborough Bridge over the East River.
So Susie directed us to our hotel....
Tomorrow we'd 'take Manhattan' as Bud said on Facebook. I never ever thought I would be in New York City.
"New York City?! Get a rope!"
