If you plan to go to Freeport on a Monday afternoon around 3:00 in the summertime on a cloudy day...
Unless you love hoardes of traffic and tourists swarming as thick as the black flies in May.
If you love spending 45 minutes looking for a parking spot that is nearly a mile from anywhere you want to go, and if the store you're going to is so crowded that the wait is more than 20 minutes, then be my guest.
My suggestion, if by chance you feel the way I do and loathe such crowds, is to turn the car around, creep through the traffic BACK out onto the interstate, and plan to go back to Freeport the next day when the stores open first thing in the morning.
Yes, that's the only civilized thing to do.

In other news, I've been scarce because I've been painting again. I spent last week painting the stairs leading into our basement. I'll try to put pictures up before the paint starts chipping again...
