If you’ve traveled on an interstate, you’ve no doubt noticed an abundance of helpful blue signs pointing out things interesting to a motorist: food, lodging/camping, fuel, and major attractions.
In my recent odyssey around the western US, I noticed many of these signs and was curious how one gets them, how much they cost, rules, etc.
Debbie’s dust story reminded me of my experience in learning another language, where my pile of how-to-speak books is much like her weight bench — thickly covered with dust and good intentions.
Success! I won’t have to car shop for (hopefully) another six years and my journey into middle-agedness is almost complete.
