destination nutsville

Hi Every Bloggie!

Pardon my recent absence from blogging! Saturday morning I was awoken by a 3:50am alarm! Huh what was going on?? I had a suitcase packed and we quickly hit the road.

Look! This ain't right. It was pitch dark for awhile then the sun rose behind us.
I really wasn't sure where I was going and what was going on.
I was a bit dazed and confused. That's why I'm all a blur.
We made a few stops where strange things greeted us. Why would a bear greet us? I think he looks more like a beaver anyways.
The day was bleak, damp and cool. But even at these rest stops, I caught a whiff of a deer.
and it set me in devil dog mode. I tried to dash towards it in the field. Geez.. why not? I needed to stretch my legs.
The welcome center in PA was surrounded by vineyards but NO vino for sale. Ahem, you know who was a bit disappointed.
Then more and more hours of my excellent co-piloting. 12 hours to be exact.
Finally, I had to take over. I do have my backseat driver's license.

Our destination? I ventured to a place filled with nuts! Yep. Buckeye Nation- Columbus Ohio- terrority of the Ohio State University Buckeyes. I don't care what mom says, that Brutus Buckeye looks creepy.

I immediately did a proper "norwood" style greeting to my Ohio friend Bethy and
a heeler hug to Kenichi. I know they are going to enjoy my visit.

PS... I'll catch up on your bloggies soon. I'm sorry I haven't been around.


  1. Norwood! I checked the map and Oh Hi Yo is totally west of the Rt. 495 force field which means that anything could happen. I see from your photos that there are some pretty scary things out there. Watch out!


  2. Hey Norwood,
    Is that your license plate?
    Pretty cool if it is?
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. We love road trips, so hope you are having a blast on yours. Though that buckeye dude looked scary. Did you "mark" him?

  4. What a great trip blog! I always tell the boss how to drive as well ;-)


  5. Norwood Norwood Norwood. I just don't know what about you Norwood. Heck... If I had known you were coming to Ohio... I would have met you somewhere in or near Zanesville. We could have shared PeeMail... in person.
    At least you were here while it was still a bit warm and sunny. Hope you had a good time. Glad you are back to your blog.
    I hope that you will have time to write and post your Adoption Story for tomorrow. If not then... PERHAPS Friday.

  13. Norwood! why don't you co-pilot your ship over to NORCal, in the redWOODS, where your name would make much more sense... and spend some quality time with Juno and Loki.

    you look like a fun fella. they'd like to romp with you!
