Happy Elvis' Birthday!

Today AMC is showing nothing but Elvis movies. I enjoy them, most of 'em, silly as they are.

How far have I come from the place I called 'home' as a child?

1. Go To Mapquest.com.
2. Click on Directions
3. Enter your current address and the address (or town) of your childhood home.
4. Put the time and distance in a post like this.
5. Post the meme in your LJ so other people can join the fun.

Total Est. Time: 15 hours 35 mins
Total Est. Distance: 1013.0 miles

That's from here in this house just to Cheyenne, Wyoming, since I don't remember what I did with the exact address (I do have it around here somewhere, I know I do) of the house I was born in; we lived there until I was six, I believe, then moved to Zuni, New Mexico, then to Tucson.

Mom told me the exact address is gone now; she said the whole neighborhood is under I25/I80 interchange. I'd love to go back someday and look at it, anyway. When rahirah and I drove through northern New Mexico several years ago, I did drive by the house I lived in there. All new neighborhood with dozens more houses (and far less forest) than when I lived there, but the house was still standing.

I wanted to get some writing done today, but I ended up sleeping all day (I guess I needed it), and then we did some shopping, had lunch, and ferried Mom around for a while. It was a nice day, but I ended here getting email done and BOOM, it's nearly six. Yikes. Hopefully tomorrow I can get some real work done.

I'm going to be making chicken parmigiana this evening, mostly to use up a jar of sauce that's been opened.
