Yesterday I kidnapped PawPower.
I DO NOT NORMALLY DO THIS KIND OF THING.
Anyway, she was coming through Charlottesville on the train with a 6 hour layover so the plan was to have dinner and hang out with dogs and meet chickens and then get her on the train home. Except that while the phone told us the train left at 2115, it actually left 10 minutes earlier. This is possibly the first time in the history of Amtrak that a train left somewhere early.
Today, therefore, I am dragging the patient Pawpower to a chicken swap, because that is the kind of hospitality we display here in Virginia. “Welcome to Virginia, let us kidnap you and take you to chicken swaps!”
Meanwhile Zille tried to kill Daniel this morning, Sid is refusing to eat his breakfast, and there was a HUGE white tail buck hanging around the back acre when we let the dogs out that had a staring contest with Beowulf. The world continues apace as I explore my new role as kidnapper.
