    The Princess and I took a 440 mile road trip today. 220 miles each way to see our 9 year old GD play soccer. Is that normal "grandparental" behavior, or was it just plain nuts? I know that Pa would not have gone by himself, but I am married to a woman who is up for wife/mother/grandmother of the millenium award. It was fun and I really wish that they lived closer, but I did not make them move so far away. It's a gradual process, but this woman is teaching me to care/love like normal people. This is difficult for an alien like me.[​IMG]

    I'm still a "the more I know people, the more I like my dogs/chickens/cats" kinda alien; you, Ranchy and the rest of the posse excluded from that of course; but then again I did say people. [​IMG]

    By the way Sour, I saw this video last night and immediately thought of you and your dogs:

    I saw that dog on TV. He is awesome and exceedingly well trained!
