Last week Spring bought a plane ticket to Colorado to visit her kids, and the cheapest and most direct flight (which, amazingly, is a direct flight to the Denver International Airport) is from Miami.
Her flight leaves in the evening.
Which meant driving to Miami in rush hour traffic.
Actually, the trip down there wasn't horrible—we took the Turnpike most of the way, then cut over to I-95 in Dade County for the rest of the way (I had debated about taking the Turnpike Extension and then head back east on 836, but while it may have been traffic free, it is way out of the way). We noticed that I-95 northbound wasn't, so I had planned on taking 836 west to the Turnpike Extension north.
I dropped Spring off, then started my way back. Unfortunately there didn't seem to be away to actually get on 836, either east or west—my only choices were I-95 or LeJeune Road, which leads who knows where?
It was a long drive back.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
