30+ miles of rolling Indiana hills and 20+mph winds makes for a long day in the saddle.

i’ve never let jon drive before unless it’s really late and i’m dangerously sleepy. now he is driving and it is awesome. sometimes letting go of control is a relief (always). this is our fifth summer driving to indiana for a week with my family. we have traditional stops along the way. the next one is the first Steak ‘n Shake, which is an hour or so away in rockford, IL. we’re super excited to see our nephew and nieces. they’ll arrive at my parents’ tomorrow. i’m going to see some old friends, too.

What could possibly go wrong? City camouflage in the city? I want to be SEEN by motorists. Maybe it comes with a set of head/rear lights.

Are you a woman? Meet a Republican Congresswoman Renee Ellmers from North Carolina. Is she speaking for you?  The Republican plan to change the ‘war on women’ narrative clearly needs some work.  Anyway - I always wonder why ANY woman can vote for GOP?  It’s a classic “Chickens for Colonel Sanders” case…

Yes she said that: “We need our male colleagues to understand that if you can bring it down to a woman’s leveland what everything that she is balancing in her life — that’s the way to go,she also said that women mainly want more time in their lives (don’t men as well?) and the first example she gave was that women wanted “more time in the morning to get ready.”

FULL AUDIO and transcript

If the face looks familiar it’s because Renee Ellmers seems to be special, as her former quotes prove.
