Counting The Bugs with Tony

Hi there. This is Joe again–driving through the San Bernardino Mountains with young Tony Peterson (Tony: woo) by my side. The Bug tally so far is I have 17 (Tony: yeah) and you got 20? No, you got 29 (Tony: 29 yeah). So we’re spotting the Bucks and we’re about an hour from Barstow and about maybe two and a half hours from Las Vegas.
Not quite sure. There’s been a lot of traffic. So we’re not married yet. However, we are en route, my friend. It’s been a lovely drive.
Except for the traffic. San Bernardino Mountains are snow capped right now. Quite lovely. Lot of cars on the road. A lot of cars on the road.
I’m guessing that this is like the busy week to travel. But then again, I think it’s all update on the blog–no–on the Bug tally. That’s 16 — no 17 for Joe. (Tony: I think it’s 19)
Is it 19? Yeah, well, you never know. So it’s 19 to 2019 to 30. He’s still eleven ahead of me, but I got a later start, so I don’t feel too bad about it anyway. So not married yet.
There will be another audio post before we get married. I’m going to guess sometime in the 8 o’clock Pacific Time Zone, I will be married once again. Leah is in the other car with the other three kids. They have stopped to get to use the facilities and that’s it. Signing off for now.

Yes, we are in Clark County. We are in Las Vegas, Nevada, at the corner of Carson and Third Street. We have acquired the license. First thing we’re going to do is because we’re tired. It’s longer than we thought I was going to be arriving. So we’re going to get a room–rooms for us and the kids. And then we’re going to go to a Chapel. So probably in another hour ish we’re going to be getting married. That’s it short and sweet. Later.
We Have The License

I am standing in wedding Chapel with Leah and Devin, Tyler, Alexandra, and Tony, and we are waiting for our turn to get married. We should be married in about 20 minutes.

Joe and Leah: We we Leah and Joe.
Joe: Are now married.
Joe: We are really very happy.
Joe: It was really awesome.
Leah: Yes, it was.
Joe: And there should be some photos online sometime in the next two weeks. We didn’t do the online. We didn’t do the fancy schmancy. We went to a little tiny Chapel.
Leah: It was very unique and very nice.
Joe: The Stained Glass Chapel in Las Vegas, Nevada, with a very sweet Minister. It was really wonderful. And we are overjoyed to be married. And that’s it.
Why Aren’t We Back (Vegas Edition)

Well, let’s see. I just said this, you know, but I pressed the END key on the cell phone and lost. I was eloquent. It was genius. You woulda laughed, you’da cried.
But instead I pressed the END key and lost it. Okay. Anyway, so driving through Las Vegas right now, we are not in California because of circumstances beyond our control. It was really rainy last night and yesterday, and that kept us in Utah. The rain was just too terrible.
Not good for driving for Leah’s loaded-down little car and not good. Especially. The problem was that really, we did not have a tarp for the boxes in the back of the truck. And we just had the netting and it just was not good all around. So we stayed with Craig, who’s Leah’s brother in St.George, and had a great time, even though we were all a little bit discombobulated, had a great time with them, and they fed us breakfast this morning and had a nice little visit with them. Unexpected, a little unwanted. But, hey, that’s life, right. But it worked out really well. So we had a bunch of rain and clear skies over Las Vegas currently passing.
Let’s see The Luxor to the left. And we’re about to be out of Vegas. Leah’s desire was not to stop in Vegas this time, which is just fine by me. So hopefully the next stop will be California. And we should be back home tonight.
Thanks for waiting and sorry for the delays, posting and all that other good stuff. So take care. Bye-bye.
