Geography

daisy_knotwise and I were driving down U.S. 45 in Des Plaines tonight and I remembered that if I stayed on the highway for most of the length of the state, I'd eventually pass through my dad's hometown of Carrier Mills.

As we compared notes on where we'd lived, Gretchen noted that this was the farthest north that she'd ever lived, DeKalb the farthest west and south, and Evanston the farthest east.

I've travelled a bit further. This is also the farthest north that I've lived, but Hawthorne, California is the farthest west, while Nimitz Hill, Guam is the farthest east and south.

How about you?

  • I Get By With a Little Help From My Friends

    With a lot of help from my friends, the pile has been moved successfully. Back to work tomorrow, where I will work on shifting different piles. :)…

  • Still Behind

    I am *trying* to catch up on things. I may eventually succeed, but this was not the day.

  • Digging Out

    I have way too many things that need to be done. I will make some more progress on them soon. On the other hand, the house is a good bit cleaner…
