What happened to the weekend?

This morning's trivia on KOIT:

Q: What year did the first gas gauge-equipped auto hit the market?

A: 1922. Actually, the car in which I learned to drive had no gas gauge. It was an early 60's VW bug, and you had to keep track of the miles you drove. But there was a backup tank that held a gallon or so. If you ran out, you turned a lever, and there was enough gas in the back-up to get you to a filling station.

'Hope you had a nice weekend. I spent the weekend painting patio furniture...which is why I'm wondering where the weekend went. My plan was to split it between this past weekend and next. As I got going though, I realized it made no sense to clean up the mess twice, so I blew through the whole project Sat & Sun. I have flat black Rustoleum under my fingernails to prove it. I used to enjoy painting, but no longer.

Last week for the first time in a loooong time, I went surfing with my family. 'Hope to post pix in tomorrow's blog.

If you were an early Fastrak adopter, first of all, good for you. Second, you may in line for a new transponder. The older ones are starting to run out of juice, and the Fastrak Customer Service Center will begin swapping them out this Fall. You won't need to lift a finger. Can you believe that Fastrak has been in operation of ten years already? Where did THAT time go?
