It's almost midnight, but I wanted to post a quick status. Mar made it to Canada yesterday, after several hours of traffic delays, rerouting, no cell phone service and finally, a "hands across the border" parade that shut the crossing down for a while. Nonetheless, she and her faithful companion Oggi, arrived in time to have dinner with us and fall into bed.
This morning, refreshed, we began our trip home. The first umpty-ump miles were spent on route 1, with a couple of shopping stops (now that we have the car, we can buy things and take them home). We hit Bucksport after 3 or 4 hours and decided to head for the interstate and put the pedal to the metal. We took some back roads to get to I95 just West of Bangor and set the cruise control on xx mph. After a couple of quick stops to handle various needs, we arrived at her home at 9:45, unloaded her things and reached casa Vicinanza at 10:30 after 575 miles of driving.
We've looked at some mail, started some laundry, made the futon up in the sun room, seen one of the two cats, and are going to pass out presently.
