you never know

Took to the road today looking for a new car.  The search wasn't very fruitful but the trip definitely was.  Headed south on Station Hollow Road to Dillsboro, then Farmers Retreat, Elrod, Versailles and on to Madison.  A little Grateful Dead on the stereo to commemorate the two years spent at Hanover College (west of Madison) seemed appropriate.  Just yesterday we were here;  Rocky, Jim, Mark & I.  1973 - just yesterday.  I'd like to recount of all the tales from that time, but I guess some things are better left unspoken.  I do remember a conversation I had with a salesman who worked for my dad - he asked how I liked college life.  "It's great," was my response, to which he replied, "enjoy it, those are the best years of your life." Yea right, I thought.  Yea right.  After cruising through campus (not on the sidewalks, Jim) I headed downtown past Clifty Falls State Park (frisbee country), Hinkle's Hamburgers (the original greasy spoon), the Key West Shrimp House (on the Ohio River) and then up the hill towards home - up 62 & 129 through Canaan, Cross Plains and Olean.  The little trip reminded me that sometimes you've just got to go out looking, 'cause you never know what you'll come back with...
