I've Been Through the Desert On a Horse With No Name...

I'm leaving today to go to Palm Springs for a few days on our yearly Staff Huddle. Here are some things that, as I've been packing this morning, have run through my mind...

  • I'm not looking forward to the drive out there. It's about two hours and I'm not the biggest fan of long (anymore than an hour) drives. But, at least I'll get to see the windmills.

  • I'm going to Joshua Tree this year. I don't care if I have to go by myself. I'm going...

  • I think I'd also like to go to the different restaurants featured on Rachel Ray's $40 a day. I've already printed out the list.

  • One of the perks that I get as a pastor is that I get my own suite at the hotel. The first year that I went, I was amazed to find that the suite is bigger than my apartment. I was also amazed to find that the couch in the living room is the best napping couch that I've ever slept on in my life. I like it better than the bed in the room.

  • I'm one of two single people going on this trip. The other is also a dude. I'm not sure how I feel about this...

  • I hope it's not 114 degrees like it was last year.

  • Editor's Note: This doesn't have anything to do with the rest of the post, I just wanted to write it. This morning, my Google homepage had this quote on it: "My fellow Americans, I am pleased to tell you I just signed legislation which outlaws Russia forever. The bombing begins in five minutes." -Ronald Reagan
    Good one, Mr. President. Good one...

    I just came back from Palm Springs yesterday. It's PERFECT right now, it was in the mid 90's and ohhh so wonderful!

    Did you happen to look up the reference to the Ronald Reagan quote? Absolutely hilarious to me.
    I wonder what the response would be today if our current pres did something similar.

    Reagan was the best. You had to love the guy.
