Road Trip

MissE and I embarked on her higher education orientation week.  What a whirlwind those things are - I had NO idea!  We started out at 5 AM after being up till after midnight the night before with a dog emergency.  Neither of us were terribly chipper, but we WERE ready for an adventure!
Along the way, we came across a variety of funny bone signs.

Flies????  Do they come with the food?  The beer?  As a side?
Nice to know where we can come with that special itch!  Or is this the place to come when we need an itch?  Hmmmm.

While at the actual orientation, we were so busy that we didn't get any photos.  Our heads are swimming with all the things still to take care of, to pack, to do - all in a mere two weeks!
On the way home, we stopped at a flour mill museum.  They boasted having a bat resident, which coincidentally shares the same name as our exchange student due to arrive next week!  Once MissE got past the thought of "what happens if this little creature decides to wake up and fly into my face", she managed to get close enough for a photo op!  It was really cute the way his little ears perked up and moved around when we spoke.
The requisite goofball tourist shot.
