A memorable send-off

Liz and George, my folks, are exemplary party hosts. In due form, they threw us an amazing party in honor of our imminent departure. The Theme: "Take a Hike".

April 5th dawned sunny and warmer than any day the previous week. The bar was set in the greenhouse, the "Happy Trails" soundtrack (with appropriate songs like 'South of the Border', 'California Dreamin', 'These Boots Are Made For Walkin', and 'O Canada') was spinning in the CD player, and 60 of our nearest and dearest friends and family came to Canton for the event.  A blast was had!

    Chris, your "myrtle likes squid video" might get some media attention while you're out in the bush.
