The next day, I delivered late Christmas/early birthday presents. Then we went to the zoo. Rode the train, looked at various animals close up, ate at the zoo fast food place. I returned to camp and turned in early. Wednesday, we visited the Warplane Museum and saw a lot of stuff, including a lot of WW I planes.
I drove from Virginia Beach to Wilderstead yesterday. A noise like Hell's grindstone started up as I was nearing Charleston, WV. I'm guessing a wheel bearing going out. I got to Wilderstead in good time, though, and spent a quiet evening in the holler. Returned today without incident.
I'm tired from all the driving, of course, but I feel much more relaxed than I was when I left. It was good to get a real vacation -- nothing but fun and family. So now I'm home, doing laundry and getting things put in order around here while Deanne is off visiting a hospice patient in Linton.
Daniel is a happy baby and a very friendly boy. We got along famously. I can't wait until the day comes when he can visit us at Wilderstead and roam the hills, play in the creek, build things . . . Meanwhile, enjoy the pics of the little werecub. He's almost eleven months old now.
