His mood improved when he discovered he had a traveling companion in the new rental car. "Lola" the GPS was talking to him in a smooth, silky voice and he soon fell under her spell.
We stopped in Dothan, Alabama to buy gasoline and we (Dakota included) were shocked at the price per gallon. We had just paid $3.59 a gallon on the beach but in Dothan the price was 3.79!
This is very strange because normally the price goes down as you head north. We talked to a friend in Atlanta and learned that because of gas shortages in Texas, many Atlanta stations were OUT OF GAS!
After filling the gas tank, Dakota said it was past his lunch time. We were hungry too so we stopped at Wendy's. While I was getting a straw, Dakota dove into my salad .
I grabbed the fork from him and sat him on the other end of the table with a pack of saltines. Dakota was not happy. I'm glad Lola stayed behind in the car, she would not have approved of Dakota's colorful language...
Another three and a half hours on the road did not improve anyone's mood but traffic was light so we made it to Mom and Dad's in good time. We arrived around 7:30pm and socialized for a while in the kitchen. We suddenly realized we had not seen Dakota for a while and when we went to the bedroom this is what we found...
He is so busted when he wakes up, those mini wine bottles were MINE!
