If you're a semi regular visitor here you may know that the safety of my person seems to have an inexplicable tie to Rhode Island. Could it be a sort of Bermuda Triangle? Just outright bad luck? Karma? Carelessness?

It could be all of the above. So here's the thing. MFB is going to Rhode Island in a couple of weeks with the hockey team. Yippee Skippee I can hardly wait. My plan was to sleep downstairs on the couch, not drive the car, only eat cold meals, and stay away from anything sharp as well as electrical outlets. I considered garlic over the door but I don't believe it will be helpful in this situation and I ruled out the silver stake for obvious reasons.

Please note I said was not is. MFB asked me go to Rhode Island with him this time. It's been a couple months since I've been on a road trip and I do love to travel. I wonder if he thinks I need a keeper. Knitty Otter could you loan me enough bubble wrap?

One of the fantastic benefits of my job is employee rates at certain hotel brands and I was in luck that the hotel the team is staying at is one of them. I have my hotel reservations made and have found two yarn stores in the area to visit. I'd like to see Naval Station Newport and find some good seafood.

If you see someone who strangely resembles Wile E. Coyote holding a sign that says HELP and is afraid to look skyward for fear of seeing the piano that is about to drop on her head, RUN. AWAY. I don't know the safe distance for this kind of thing.

I think you'll be safer with him than left to your own devices, sweetums. *L*

Still, better pack the bubble wrap. ;^)

I can't wait to see what goodies you get at the travel yarn stores. :D Best part of traveling!

Oh please tell me when you're making this trip. You probably will pass not too far from me and I want to make sure to stay off the rhodes during the likely time period (get it? rhodes? Bwahahahah I've still got it).

Pack that knitting bag but leave space for the treasures you will purchase. You need a break...perhaps traveling will "break" the evil spell. And you need somewhere to show off that special new knitting bag.

Oh yay, RI! You'll be fine, I promise. The trees are still colored and the weather seems to be a little better these days. Atleast now if something goes haywire you'll be with someone and not alone!
