So this'll be our last post for a couple weeks. I know we haven't been posting but once a week or so anyway, but whatever. Mom and dad are finally getting around to taking a road trip they'd originally planned for April 2020. But then you know what put a damper on travel plans back then! They've both been busy preparing, especially this past week, dad dilly-dallying at work all day as he does, mom doing, well, everything.
Last weekend they went for a muddy hike at Graveyard Fields, just off the Blue Ridge Parkway. They trudged their often wet, occasionally rocky way to the upper falls, where they enjoyed the seclusion that comes with starting out early.

Here's dad's semi-self-concious selfie with his spunky, spirited sidekick.
|You can tell who keeps things lively around here!|
And yes, I managed to take my own selfie😋. So anyway, they're hitting the road early tomorrow morning and winding their way north to visit assorted sibs, kids and grands in New England. Somewhere along the way there or back they also want to drive portions of the Blue Ridge Parkway they haven't yet been on, and Skyline Drive in Virginia. The lady who takes care of dad's employer's dogs will be stopping by every day to see to my needs and keep me company for a bit, and I'll be sure to rub mom's and dad's faces in how good she treated me while they were off gallivanting and neglecting me. See you in a bit...
