Younger son Casey made the long journey Monday from Minneapolis to Madison as a passenger, then the journey back from Madison to Minneapolis as a driver. How fitting, Columbus Day, to be discovering the Minnesota landscape, piloting his own craft, fearful, perhaps, of falling off the edge into darkness. His steed--the sword, the dirk, the dagger, the rapier, the cutlass, the blade. Or, in French, Le Sabre! It's a 1991, a bit the worse for wear, but via a good DSU student, he's now the proud(?) owner of this, his 4th automobile. And he's only 20!
But he survived his longest trip yet on his own, 260 miles or so through the wilds of Dakota and Minnesota territory.
