I personally want to give thanks to the inventor of those little DVD players that kids use in vehicles. Our 11 drive to Hearst with 3 kids in the car was amazingly quiet and absent of any kiddy complaints.
The drive gave me enough time to knit one entire man-size sock of Briggs & Little Tuffy -the yarn James wound for me the day before we left. Mind you, knitting at 7 am in the back seat of the van feels a bit funny - not my norm at least. Yes, I did say back seat. One of the 3 kids suffers from car sickness and I'd rather sit in the back than have a sick child. So the 13 year old gets the front seat and looks after Grandpa while he drives, and Grandma sits - what seems like miles away- in the rear. Knitting. Not a bad situation at all.
At the moment, I have come to 'town' to use the computer. While I have figured out the basics of this different machine, you will notice this is a pictureles post. I need - probably - a child to show me how to post pictures. Until then, thanks for reading.
