The Southerners Come North For The Winter

Turns out BD is just as awesome of a place to visit in the winter as it is in the summer.

The GAF (Great American Family) from Danville visited this past weekend.

And although I still believe they are the GAF, I am disappointed to report they upgraded from dial-up to high-speed Internet. They, however, still don't have cable and still have the console TV (the kind in a wooden box circa 1980), so that keeps me from stripping their title of GAF.

We had a fair share of inside time by the fire playing board games. BREAKING NEWS ... Deal did NOT win in Scrabble. Not sure how it happened, but I won and he placed in third behind the 13-year-old. On a side note, it is now the mission of many people to show Deal that winning is not everything. Our other friends introduced a new board game to us where everyone works together and wins together.

Even though the air has turned arctic, we still ventured outside for a hike.  


In any case, it was a quick, last-minute visit, but it was great to reconnect with our roots in Danville.

Thanks for the hospitality. The food was great too. When we come back maybe we will have time to look for the hidden passage where the little boy lives. Also we need to hear the "story" of the little boy. And is the clock still chiming?
