Grandparenting

Don’t get creeped out, whippersnappers!  Don’t have to be incredibly old to be grandparents nowadays.

We’ve had one or two grandkids with us for a week or so and it’s been a bit of a challenge.  We’re exhausted.  There’s a reason to have kids while you’re young.

So we did the campground last weekend, set up the pool Monday, visited House on  the Rock Tuesday, wiped out on Wednesday.

The last visit to theThe House on the Rock was created by Alex Jordan back in the 1940s. House was a long time ago, I’d forgotten how much walking is involved.  The place is indescribable.  There’s the House, fascinating in itself, then building after building full of everything you can imagine and then some.  I won’t even try to describe it, just that anything you are interested in is there, somewhere.  Except sports, maybe.

Suffice to say that if you are in the area, spending some time at Mazo Beach for instance, it’s well worth visiting.  One small warning:  we spent 5 (five!) hours walking through it .  And we had to hurry through the last hour to finish before closing.

Bring a camera.  There’s a couple of places to stop for a bite to eat or get a beer about an hour and a half  apart, a few smoking areas.  Wheelchairs are available.

In any event. we’re chillin’ today, hurting.  Too much exercise!

Don’t know what’s up for the weekend.  Camp, beach, or maybe Valley View.  Last grandkid should be gone so we can be nekked again, yay!     Bye    -Ste11282005_carousel.jpgve

PS:  How does this relate to nudity?  It doesn’t except that it’s been a looong week without it.  On the other hand, there were a lot of nudes on the giant carousel which has hundreds of animals and mythical creatures but, no horses.

If you really want a description of House on the Rock, this site explains it far better than I could:  Gapers Block

Courteous behavior is expected; please stay on-topic. Thanks!
