Day 4.076: "Not all those who wander are lost"
Exile #3 had two birthday parties this weekend - both were bowling parties. I was curious to see how the bowling unit they had done in P.E. at school would affect their 'form'. The answer appeared to be that she looked the part, but the bumpers were still instrumental in making sure that a number of her shots threatened the pins.
As I was on the way there to pick her up I saw an SUV with a bumper sticker with the above quote from J.R.R. Tolkien. I thought it was a fairly cute sticker until I noticed that the vehicle had an out of state plate. It was from Alaska. That's over 4000 miles of wandering!
