Where's Midland Anyway?

I had a little adventure yesterday! Decided to take a little trip out to the mall and do some shopping. I used to do that on a regular basis, but notsomuch anymore. On the way home I took Diamond Drive - which I have done many times. This time there was a detour after a distance and I followed the detour signs - or at least I thought I did! I kept going and going and eventually I figured I should be getting close to home. Nothing familiar anywhere. I finally stopped and pulled into a driveway and there was a young fellow there. I was going the wrong direction and he got me back on the right track. So turned around and headed back. This time I evidently took the detour turns right since, although it did take quite a while I eventually ended up on the rode to home! Hallelujah! What a strange feeling to wonder where in the heck you are when you know you can't be that far away from your destination. I have no idea where I was!! One good thing that came out of it was that my little old car (17 year old Chevie Prism) was probably enjoying itself running at 55 miles an hour for some lengths of time instead of putting around at 30 and 35 mph in town. It was probably kind of pooped when we got home! Enjoying this fallish weather to the fullest! My favorite time of year.
