Next Stop, Ithaca

I've made it to Ithaca, NY. The driving was messy, but I just lowed down and it was fine. The real problem is that the program that was scheduled for this evening was cancelled first thing this morning, because schools were cancelled.

So, I'm now with Elaine, which is great! We went out to eat.

We got fortune cookies. You can draw any kind of conclusions you like. So far the Dove candy wrappers have a better track record.

Since we didn't have to go anywhere, we are watching the History Channel and playing Upwords.

We had to picture the words in the middle of the game! Hiker and tent are foreshadowing of who would ultimately win (tee hee).

The score was tied. Then I got a great score and went ahead, but didn't have anywhere to play my last letter. But Elaine took her turn, and made it possible for me to play my last letter, so she had to lose 5 points. I won this round! Here's the final board.

Sure hoping for the program tomorrow to be a go. I need to stop losing money! I'm having a great time, but this trip needs to NOT be a financial bust.
