We leave tomorrow for a visit to our ancestral homeland. For RFB and me, that's Rochester, NY. For Monkeyboy it's the golden land of grandparental indulgence. Three grandparents, plus assorted aunts, uncle and cousins.
I'm looking forward to it, too. I very badly need to get away from work.
But uggh, the drive. 8-9 hours in the car tomorrow. We'll leave very early tomorrow morning to try to avoid D.C.'s a.m. rush hour.
Coming back we'll stop overnight in central Pennsylvania at a wonderful place called the Country Cupboard.
It's right across Route 15 from the Allenwood Federal Correctional Facility. Maybe we'll see some famous crook's relatives. (Allenwood has a reputation as a Club Fed, but that's probably an exaggeration.)
I'll have limited access to the Internet, on this trip, I think.
So have a good rest of week, y'all. Keep the rubber side down and the shiny side up. I'll endeavor to do the same.
(By the way, Ted is staying with a hamster-friendly family. I know some of you worry about that sort of thing. )
