Day 148

At the Astros game today I found a quarter under the seat in front of me. My first quarter find of the month, which is turning into an “All Natural” month. We will see if this trend continues.

On the autograph front, Chris and I got a very cool autograph, Alyssa Milano of Who’s the Boss fame, who was there to support her current boyfriend, Brad Penny of the Dodgers. A few thoughts on Alyssa;

  • She is VERY hot in real life. Second only to Marti :-)
  • She is VERY short
  • She is REALLY tatted up. We counted 2 tattoos on her back and one near the palm of her hand. So if she has 3 tats visible, then you can only imagine how many she has total!

One thing I forgot to mention from our drive home. Since we have to drive 18 hours, Marti and I came up with a game to pass the time. We decided to keep track of all the different license plates and see if we could find all 50 states. We forgot to make a list before we left, so we had to use the Across the USA section from the USA Today, to keep track. We drove from Fort Wayne, Indiana to Houston, Texas over the course of 19 hours. Any ideas on how many we got? Or any guesses on which states we did not see?
I’ll take guesses tonight and reveal the answers tomorrow.

Total for the Day - $0.25
Total for the Race - $35.92

I'm glad you've decided to go natural. Organic is best.

Liza and I have played the license-plate game, too. We started on a road trip and continued through the course of a year. I'll guess you found 32 states, with Hawaii and Alaska among the notable exceptions. You can find them both, but they're certainly rare. I'll bet you were a bit short on the Northeast, too. It's hard for me to be certain because I've never traveled that route myself. You must have found good old N.J.
