Val and I got back from a 20-hour jaunt to Florence, Alabama, visiting with most of her Jackson friends, just in time for me to get to work. We drove up at 4 yesterday after she got off work, and had to leave at 12:30 this afternoon for the nearly three hour drive. That's a quick trip!
Not that we didn't have a great time, of course. We grilled out (Michael had the burgers, I handled hot dogs, on Michelle's new grill), joked around, and played Trivial Pursuit, which Val and I won. Our marriage agreement is that she carries the load in card games, I do my part at trivia, especially worthless knowledge that no one needs to know.
Making it faster on the drive home, Val read the first few chapters of The Deathly Hollows to me, once we found it. Can you believe that the book wasn't at K-Mart, yet next door at Kroger there were plenty? And that's why K-Mart can't stay open anymore.
I beg all of you, no spoilers! No insinuation at all, please, of what happens! It may take me a few extra days, whereas many of you are already finished, I know!
