After a day spent wandering the woods, creek and little country town (one pizza place, one gas station and one video rental store), J. is setting up Battleship. Board games = Adult entertainment in the mountains. I would personally love some Hungry, Hungry Hippos action right about now, but my choices are limited. We got Scrabble (maybe after another glass of wine), Monopoly (nah, that will lead to real estate talk)…and Battleship, (looks like a ghetto laptop for children).
This getaway is good for us — crickets, cicadas, spiders and all. Gone for a few days is the noise of our city life. We’re back to basics. J. + R., R. + J. and…the pooch! Now, if I could just get him out of our bed– that big, furry third wheel!
