Cross-Country Connections: Empty

Cross-Country Connections is a Biodork weekly blog entry dedicated to telling stories in pictures of three family members – me, my sister and Mom – living in very different locations across the country. Every week we choose a different theme and then take or contribute a personal photo that fits the theme. This week’s theme is Empty.

Since the second time since we began Cross-Country Connections, one of our trio is making a MAJOR cross-country move. Mom finally sold her house in Carbondale, Illinois and is moving out to Hagerstown, Maryland. TOMORROW, in fact. I’m catching an early morning flight down to Southern Illinois in just a few short hours (holy crap – I have to get to bed!) to help her, the two cats and one dog make the 12-hour cross-country drive.

So – three cheers for Mom’s last post from Carbondale, Illinois!

From Mom in Carbondale, Illinois: 

CCC Empty Mom
Getting down to short strokes here. I move on Wednesday!

From me in Minneapolis, Minnesota:

CCC Empty Brianne
Insert Coins video game nightclub in Minneapolis from one night last year. The empty dance floor is probably one of the reasons why this awesome club closed one year after it opened.

From Erin in Takoma Park, Maryland:

CCC Empty Erin
The entrance to Hurricane Harbor at Six Flags America in Maryland. At 9 pm as the park closes after Fright Fest.

Now, when the police officer tries to make eye connection or leans in towards the auto, the officer will point to the fact you are showing red eyes, or there is an smell of liquor. This elevates the reasonable intuition of speeding to giving a cop a clue that a person may be driving while under the influence. 99.9% of cops will say odor of liquor, red eye balls, or mumbiling talk. The police may also note you were rumaging around trying to get your id and insurance in your hand. At this point a person will be likely
