My grandson is graduating from high school this year and I've never seen any of his games. I also have a close, long-time friend in New York who I don't get to see unless she visits me, so my daughter suggested we celebrate this year's milestone birthday with a road trip. She would drive us to New Jersey to watch my grandson's football game, and then to Long Island to visit my friend.

Back at their house, I checked out the pets.
Rockfish, the little goldfish that grew and grew, had grown even more, since my last visit, and a companion--Oscar--had been added to his tank.
The dogs seemed excited to see me, especially Charlie, who nipped at my legs and then gave me a bite that took me by surprise. He has never done that before. Good thing I was wearing long pants, or it could have been a lot worse.
