I've been out of commission for a few days due to lack of Internet access. So I am going back to Friday to update you on our weekend festivities. First, I must mention the drive up. Another drive from Hell to those of you who know what I'm talking about. There is just no good way to get from Pennsylvania to Connecticut. Bill studied directions all week before we left. Talked to travel jockeys, downloaded umpteen Mapquest routes, bought paper maps, all to no avail. Here is a photo of our drive up. A picture is worth a thousand words, right?

This photo should give you an idea of what our entire trip was like. Bumper-to-bumper traffic, teeming rain, traffic, rain, rain, traffic, you get the idea. It took us 7 hours and 20 minutes (including a stop for lunch) to get from our house to Shirley's. Fortunately, things took a turn for the better as the weekend progressed. But we would just as soon forget Friday.
