We're taking off on a long-weekend road trip. I get to spend a total of 16 hours in the car with 14-month-old Colbie. This is the true test of our grandmother/granddaughter relationship. Will we love each other as much when we get back as when we started?
My guess is that this will bring our relationship to a whole new level. She will probably hear every song I've ever learned, including the lyrics to all Broadway musicals from the 1960s and 1970s. (Little known fact: I can recite all the lyrics to "Trouble in River City" from Music Man.)
My guess is that Colbie and I will get along fine, but everyone else in the car will want to drop me off at a truck stop somewhere near Timbuktu. I'll report back on Monday!
