Weekly Pic--A Bridge to Somewhere

On our last trip to Pennsylvania, BigJoel surprised me with a self-guided driving tour of covered bridges. It was so fun driving around the Amish countryside in mid-October. We had a great time.

I chose the title for this picture because my youngest daughter loves to impersonate Sarah Palin by saying, in her very best Alaskan accent, "Gosh darnit! If we wanted a Bridge to Nowhere, we'd build it ourselves!" Even now, you can't mention the words bridge, Alaska, or Sarah Palin without her breaking into an impression of the former vice-presidential canditate. Let me just say that Tina Fey's got nothing on Hallie (except maybe the glasses).

So we really need to start planing our much deserved road trip!!! How about badly worded road signs of the U.S?
I love the picture...am somewhat jealous but i know you covet the time you and BigJOEL have together. And HallieBeth is such a treasure....she's not mouthy & rude like some peoples children (insert my name here)
