The old stamping grounds.

Well, it’s back on the ol’ highway for us; after a brief detour to celebrate our daughter’s first Rosh Hashanah with the wife’s family tomorrow, we’re heading back down to Long Island for the weekend to bask in the glow of suburbia.

This will of course be a much less traumatic trip than the one we took last week, which involved a grueling 16-hour round trip from North Creek to southeastern Pennsylvania and back.  Instead I’ll get a chance to gorge myself on White Castle sliders.  Have a great weekend!
