Power Trip

Today I remembered, for about the millionth time, that if you have a device that needs a power cord, then the device and the cord should go through life, and through the day, hour by hour, together.  So if you are on some lonesome (or busy) highway with your 80-year-old eccentric mother, and she has the directions to some important place just enough wrong that you can’t find it, and you have a GPS for just that very purpose, then IF you had the power cord, then the GPS would actually be helpful.
