Trip log 2

Reasonably sure now that I'm staying up in NO VA for Turkey Day. The folks put no pressure on me to come down. I think it's probably the right decision anyway. As Dad said, more mileage is more mileage. I was a little hesitant considering Eric's younger sister is an old ex of mine but I found out last night she's not coming. It will just be Karen's side of the family apparently. Will be very good to see Betty again.

I always thought it was funny that people called Northern Virginia, NOVA. Part of that is because Northern Virginia Community College where most of us ended up at one time or another is called NOVA. But make it two words, No Va and in Spanish it means "does not go" doesn't paint to rosy a future picture does it?

I'll head down to Lexington, NC on Friday and spend the night with Brent and Roxy unless they have broken up and then it will just be Brent.

So ryl if you are still up that way visiting family, we might could get together for a bit if you like. Saturday I'll head over to Lenoir for the Winter Council meeting and then head back for Illinois later that day.

I went Wandering yesterday and got sort of lost on backroads between Marshall and Gainsville. Went up one road called Eccentric Mountain Road...just had to and eventually ended up at the Pearmund Winery. So I was there already, figured I had to do a wine tasting. Ended up buying 3 bottles of Chardonnay and 3 bottles of late harvest Viognoles. The cute wine girl behind the counter gave me a free wine glass so I gave her a jar of crabapple jelly.

Off to see the wizard...er the psychic today. See what she has to tell me this time.
