Whoops! Fragments of Brief Vacation


Small family outing to Hueston Woods State Park for fossil hunting. A beautiful field of flowers with observation deck in the middle.  Result: A bee sting on each foot of one daughter.

On the way to the park passed through Lebanon, Ohio, where one street was named Yankee and the main highway identified itself on the highway pavement as the “American Way.”

After a midnight visit from the rear-end avenger, I dreamed I lent a friend my car and when I went to get it, it was standing upright (front up in the air) leaning against a wall, with chocolate milk running out of its rear end.

Stayed 2 nights in a cabin and the third night in the resort. In the cabin, someone had installed the bar for the shower curtain too high so that the shower curtain’s bottom swung in the air. Very nice cabin otherwise, except up and out by 10 a.m.

Many recreational facilities located in the woods park include a nature museum with live birds, including a bald eagle. The facility is a wild-life refuge which cares for injured birds. It is also a raptor refuge, and I hope to add a photo of some of our neighbors (see above, I already did)..

You’ll probably think I’m exaggerating, but I drove parallel to the LONGEST railroad train I’ve ever seen.

Hueston Woods is located west of Cincy, near Oxford College.  We found our fill of fossils, and fun.

P.S. Last year we ate picnic lunch at this table. It was a little more difficult this year:




About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 82 now.
