Do not adjust your sets. This is not your beloved Carpoolqueen. This is a cheap imitation, also known as her trusty sidekick, Whimzie. Earlier this summer Carpoolqueen and I gave each other power of attorney for our respective blogs. (RespectIVE, not respectABLE.) What this means is that in case of an emergency, heretoforeward (what? I was sure that was a word!) referred to as The Great Ball of String Tour, I have the power and authority to post on Carpoolqueen’s Blog and vice versa. Not that I’m planning on going on a Great Big Ball of String Tour anytime soon. Or ever. The jury’s still out. No, my family prefers to spend our vacation time uprooting and moving from state to state. You know on second thought, maybe we should consider a Great Big Ball of String Tour in the future.
CPQ thought she would be able to post from the road but unfortunately she is having technical difficulties. Or maybe she got into a rest area brawl with a tumbleweed. Or was bowled over by a big ball of string. I couldn’t tell what she said. The connection wasn’t great. She asked me to tell you that she’ll be back next week to regale you with adventurous stories of epic proportions…and maybe even a picture of Mount Rushmore.
Until then, I thought I’d leave you with a few of the more memorable Tweets she’s posted the last couple of days. If you’re already one of her Tweeps, consider this a review. She may give a pop quiz when she gets back.
Just stopped for $2.14/gallon gas. It’s good to be in the midwest. (8:47 AM Sep 14th from TwitterFon)

@name-deleted-to-protect-the-innocent-someone: I’ve seen more corn today than I ever could imagine existed. It’s mind-boggling and truly beautiful. (7:53 PM Sep 14th from TwitterFon)
@name-deleted: Your dinner sounds yum! I had Mexican as well…Nebraska Mexican food tastes just like North Carolina Mexican food… (7:58 PM Sep 14th from TwitterFon)
