A day before it snows in Anchorage, Susan leaves Alaska for a reunion with her unintentionally hilarious mom, Linda, in Hillsboro, Oregon.
It's a beautiful afternoon during Part 1. The pool in Linda's apartment complex is "Closed for the Season", but that doesn't stop the Dynamic Duette from sitting outside of the pool and soaking up some sun!
Next stop: The Sportsman's Warehouse where the dynamic duo searches for a cot for Susan to sleep on instead of the wicked uncomfortable couch during her visit. No success, but great tunes to accompany this fantastic outing. Linda finds a Carhartt shirt--WITH buttons!
Final stop: The afternoon rounds off with a quick stop at the Wendy's drive-thru for the new Pulled Pork sandwich. Then to Cabela's where Susan gives in and purchases the "Cot Close-out Special". They drive home in rush-hour traffic, discussing everything from the OJ Simpson trial to Driver's Ed--and Susan struggles to remember her instructor's name (anyone listening who can provide this info gets a prize).
