OK, so while making our way across the States the people we meet always ask, "So what do you think of America?"

I am always stumped by this question and have been trying to think of a real good response (instead of just replying with..."Gees mate, it is big isn't hey...You've got big cars, big roads, and big food proportions!" etc...)

However, I finally realised that coming across the States I'd noticed a lot of convienence. There are drive thru pharmacies and drive thru ATM Bank machines, and y'all know about the drive thru food chains here...even ice cream shops and donut ones too. So it is a country of convienence, right?

Well..I thought I had seen it all until I got to New Orleans. The photo up the top spells it out as clear as mud...Drive thru DAIQUIRIS!!! WOW...how convienent is that??? <sarcastic voice>

Gees Louise, enough said.

Great to hear you gals are having a "stonkin good time"! CRICKEY! I miss you Sheilas! Wish I could just "nip across" to Montreal to meet up with you, but Montreal is almost as far away from me as Florida. Za nen!

Well I was wondering what that photo was about...now I know.I thought the Gold Coast was a bit up-market with it's drive through pie shop but that even beats drinking behind the flags at the Japanese train station.XXXXXXXXXXXXX Mummy
