"Most of New Jersey doesn't even have refineries." - Richie Sambora

I am in New Jersey for a bit, visiting my little brother and his wonderful wife and my positively adorable, chewable little nephew. The boys - all three, plus H - are with me. Posting may be scarce for a bit. We have baseball games to play, and bat mitzvahs to attend, and nephews to fawn over. There are cousins - "Cousins!" - to play with.

The drive wasn't really all that bad, once we got out of the dead space of mid-PA and found a diner in which to eat eggs and pie. We escaped the Roy Rogers/old-people-in-tour-buses experience by the skin of our teeth, but our trauma was such that a hefty cup of diner coffee was enough to erase it from memory.

And inquiring minds want to know - is a compass a standard piece of equipment in cars these days?

Musr run - "Play with cousins!" is up next.

Have tons of fun!

I bought my husband a compass once that stuck onto the windshield.

It saved me from getting lost many times.

I have NO sense of direction whatsoever.

My sense of direction is so bad you can put me in the car and drive around the block backwards and I'm lost for a week!

Surrounded by mountains as we are, I use my compass all the time.

Glad the drive wasn't too bad and playing with cousins sounds like fun.

I miss New Jersey! Consider yourself lucky. But I'm missing lots of things these days.
