I went to the farm in Rolla for the Memorial Day weekend. This time I was with Tom and Lisa and their daughters. That made six of us, plus the family pet, a 15-year-old Pug named Butter.
It’s been a long time since I’ve travelled in an over-packed car with two younger generations plus a pooch. In the days before seat belts and iPads, there was a lot more bouncing around in the backseat during a road trip. Today’s game apps and seat restraints make for a much calmer ride—though nonetheless adventuresome.
