The Old Wolf Express III - Wholly Toledo



Honest Weight! No Springs!

But if you ever get to Toledo, never, never stay at the Motel 6 there. Oh, Maumee, pat my bum! I've had uniformly good experiences with Motel 6 all across the country, but this place needs to be burned to the ground, and if I were the franchisor, I would pull my name off this abomination of desolation in a heartbeat. Filthy, uncleaned bathrooms, rooms smelling like wet rats and mold - by the silken breast of Mogg's mother, may I die a thousand deaths before I have to stay in this hellhole.

Now let me tell you how I really feel...

Got settled in another motel down the street which seemed luxurious by comparison.

Other than this temporary descent into madness, the day was good. We stopped for lunch at a Red Lobster and got positively stuffed. That meal held us all the way to midnight, when we got settled in Toledo. We should get to Gettysburg around 1:00 tomorrow, Mogg willing.

Saturday night in Toledo, Ohio
Is like being nowhere at all...

One of the only two John Denver songs I ever deliberately learned.

Which raises the question - note I deliberately do not say begs the question, which is a widely-misused turn of phrase - of why you learned this particular song? XP

A) it was on the album that could not be avoided
B) it's funny.

B is all I ever need ;)

There was the guy they pulled in on a 14 12 - didn't believe in Columbus...or Cincinnati, hadn't made his mind up about Toledo....

PS Gettysburg? make sure you get the right address....

As won-tolla so rightly pointed out, it was two score years ago that I was there... things change right under your feet...
