''The elf-queene, with hir joly compaignie, Daunced ful ofte in many a grene mede.” Geoffrey Chaucer "The Wife of Bath’s Tale"


One of the highlights this summer was the week my grandson spent with me.  I had planned a itinerary to keep a sixteen year old busy, not an easy task, and the week flew by before I knew it, the lament of Grandmothers everywhere.  His intuitive ability made our trips remarkable to say the least, special memories I'll always treasure.  From our visit to nearby Chalk Bluff Battlefield Park on St. Francis River  to the cemetery at the Old Military Road ford on Black River where he picked up a spook!  Even though he lives in the middle of famous Civil War battlefields in Virginia, I think the visit made a lasting impression, not your typical boring duty visit to Granma.  I can't wait until next summer!
