Oh, I would long to be able to say that I didn't mind cleaning the bathrooms! It is a total chore for me! I laughed out loud about the driving stuff! My Dad is just like that! He is such a gentle, quiet man but he gets SO MAD when people drive poorly! It is a sight!

I have always wanted to visit Alaska! It seems like such a breathtaking place to see in person!

God bless!
