I've been everywhere -- at least, I feel like it

It was a long day. I got up and out the door in good order, but when I reached Nashville, I realized I had left my keys for the gate and cabin at home. I was driving Deanne's car, you see, since my truck is on the fritz. So, it was back to Downhill from Walmart, and then back on the road.

I got to Wilderstead in good time, and pitched into cleaning up the building site and cabin. It was a big job. But then, I tried to start my generator, and I couldn't get it to fire up. Which meant no vacuuming. I had to be content with merely sweeping out the cabin, which leaves a lot of dust. Oh well, another day.

I hastened over to Fairfield to meet Anna and Brian and the boys at Jungle Jim's. Parking was crazy, and so was the crush inside. Hey, it was a Saturday in December at the Jungle, you know? All kinds of good things greeted us. But no boars' heads. They were temporarily out, so I need to go back over Wednesday. Aaaargh!

Oh well, I got to spend some good time with people I love. We ate at the Old Spaghetti Factory, and then I hit the road for home.

I took this pic at the Olive Bar in Jungle Jim's. Daniel loves olives and heaped up a whole container to munch on. James doesn't like olives, and his expression shows it.
