We left Long Island Sunday morning. I rode with daughter Kate to New Jersey, and we spotted John on the road ahead of us after we went over the George Washington Bridge. We were in plenty of time to go to her church at 10:30. It was in the church library that I spotted these amusing signs. The first says “chillderen libery” with libery corrected to liblery. Can you read that sentence aloud without laughing? I suspect a child made the sign, and a “chilld” would be able to read it.
The second sign was more sophisticated. One thinner “A” was inserted in ARCHEOLOGY. To tell you the truth, I don’t read all caps easily. I would have missed that mistake if the correction hadn’t been so evident.
We had breakfast/lunch with Kate and Michael before starting home.
Thankfully, the drive to Virginia was uneventful, as were the last six hours home. The first thing I noticed when we walked in the kitchen was that Rose and John $pencer had cleaned all the counters. Things were much neater than I had left them. I count that as a gift!
John said we drove 2,345 miles in that one week we were away. I might have felt it if we hadn’t stopped to visit wonderful people every day. The first day and the last were the only ones that didn’t include other folks. It was a most satisfying trip, one that gave us many happy memories.
