Me, sometimes I'm obliviously knitting, which can be a very good thing. I looked up at the last minute to see us just miss hitting her. Got a dishcloth done today by concentrating on my knitting and not on the road!
You know, there's a few things we've noticed about Texas that are just tidbits of stuff we like...I think whoever has a handle in designing the Texas highway system has done a pretty good job. We liked the "feeder" lanes that run alongside the highways...you've got a choice whether to get on the interstate running parallel to the feeder lanes at opportune times, or you can stay out in the feeder lanes and get to many different destinations for shopping, gas, etc. without ever having to hop on the interstate, but it's there if you need it. We also think the Texas bridges over interstates are beautifully designed. The bridges actually have what I call "inlay" designs of "waves" on the sides. Some of them have murals painted on them...Add the rest stops to that list as well.

I actually took the time to read all the displays..free wifi at this rest stop as well. Texas really knows how to treat their guests!
