Ahhhh..."The Good Old Days". This photo is from May of 2007 when we thought gas prices were nuts. Back then we were writing about taking extreme measures. Today the same sign reads $3.79 for "Super Unleaded".
We're within striking distance of $4 gas by the Fourth of July and $5 by Labor day. Yep, we predicted that months ago.
We're closing our office for a couple of days to make a trip back to Michigan. Mom, who will be 88 in a few days has been looking forward to this for some time. Us too. It's the first trip for personal reasons in a very long time.
We'll be on the lookout for that five-dollar gas along the way. Got a feeling we'll find it.
Other personal stuff:
Last Saturday night we attended a wedding here in Des Moines. It was for our long time friend and graphic designer Aaron Muelhaupt and his bride Andrea. What a wonderful time and a meaningful ceremony, which they wrote themselves. Proud? You bet! Fun...out of this world. Creative...yep. Mazel Tov again to you guys! Now let's see what you do with that broken glass....get creative. (I'll never forget the first day Aaron told me about Andrea...two years ago yet!) Well done my friends.
The radio show for Sunday (Highway 6 - Your Road to the Country) was pre-recorded but it's a great topic. We're going to visit with Craig Dick from Calcium Products and if you would like to learn more about how limestone and calcium makes a difference in soil...tune in to 98.3 WOW-FM Sunday morning at 8.
We'll connect from the road later in the week. Thanks for reading!
Michael P. Libbie - Insight Advertising, Marketing & Communications...gosh she is pretty huh? (Mom!)
