A wedding in Malibu on the last weekend of summer meant heavy traffic and crazy heat. My daughter intended to drive by herself, spend the night and return to San Diego the next morning and had asked me to take care of her dog. I suggested I come along so we could make use of the carpool lane and visit a little. Of course, I was also thinking, air conditioning at the hotel would be a welcome relief from the sweltering beach weather we had experienced all week.
As it turned out, I drove her car both ways…on the way there she was able to put on make-up, change and be ceremony ready and on the return, she napped. I didn’t mind as she also has Sirius Radio. Sunday morning traffic was nothing compared to Saturday’s…3 and 1/2 hours to get there and a little more than 2 to get back.
