Stay Golden

Don't worry, I survived the blizzard. My survival was largely due to the fact that Madeline and I skipped town to go visit our favorite SnB alum, Alex Klein. Now, Alex claims to be shaping young minds in St. Louis but don't be fooled. He's actually livin' it up in Miami with my favorite retirees Blanche, Rose, Sophia, and Dorothy.

College kids ain't got nothing on these ladies. They are wild. Upon our arrival, they gave us a quick tour of the city. Back at the house, we feasted on Sicilian and Scandinavian delicacies. Dessert was, of course, a delicious cheesecake. After dinner, we moved to the living room to play Charades.

Classic Madeline. So busy checking out the lanai she almost missed the picture.

Turns out Sophia was attempting to act out The Wizard's of Waverly Place. That's a tough one. The evening progressed in a calm but enjoyable manner until a misunderstanding involving peanut butter, a hairdryer, and the neighbor's cat landed Sophia and I in the slammer.

Thank goodness Dorothy knew to bring Peruvian Highland wool with her.

By the time the charges were finally dropped, it was time for Madeline and I to head back to Kirksville. The roads were so bad we had to parachute down.

All in all, it was a memorable trip. My brief incarceration allowed me to prepare for the tundra of Kirksville by knitting a cozy hat.

I imagine that if I had been in town, two snow days would have left me extremely bored. Who knows what I would have done to pass the time?
