This morning Va, Beth, and I set out for Almanzo Wilder’s boyhood home. It was about a five hour drive from our house. Here’s Beth in front of the house:

There is a huge maple in the yard too:

We bought a nightcap for Beth and several postcards. Then we set off for Canada. It took over an hour to get over the border. I dunno if that was because of the G20 wrapping up their business in Toronto today or not, but it sure was a slow slog across the St Lawrence River.
