Once we would take to the road spontaneously. We would start out early in the day. Our route was never planned. Oh, we would always begin the journey the same way because there was only one way out. Turn right, then right again. Make a left. This led us onto a long and winding highway.
After that we had many decisions and lots of choices.
There was the day that we wondered where that bumpy country lane would lead us. To our delight we found an old flea market. It appeared to be abandoned.
Large old tin signs, heavy on a tilted pole, creaked in the wind. They told us when to come, where to park and that there would be food.
There were rows of faded pink, blue and yellow shaker shacks. In front of each cottage sat empty tables covered with colorful cloths, perhaps waiting to once again display newly found discarded treasures.
As we slowly made our way down each dusty alleyway we caught glimpses of skinny turkeys running wild in between the buildings.
But that was once. Now we have Sophie. She never lets us go off roading. She certainly is a stern taskmaster. Frankly, I think our lives have dulled because of her constant nagging...Re-Routing!
