Gettin’ Out of Dodge

December 28, 2016

It’s one of the three most crowded weeks on the mountain; the lodging is all full, the activities are booked solid, and today they were doing overflow parking at the lot halfway down the mountain because all the upper lots were full. So what did we do? Leave town. I grabbed Stanley the octopus and a monkey friend, Mr. Karen and I cleared about a foot of snow off our truck that had been sitting for a few days, and we headed off to visit family in Washington.

Sparty and friend

Along the way, we tried Fatburger for the first time; baby monkey got in on that, since she was in my purse. (What? You don’t have a monkey in your purse?)


I’m not sure what we’ll do for the next few days, and that’s perfectly okay.
