I called Mom's cell when I woke up, and told her to give my love to Grandma S. She called back later to say they'd stopped for lunch at Perkins (a pancake place) and were back on the road. I'm not sure why she was telling me about their lunch, though it's a restaurant I like a lot. There used to be a Perkins around here, but it changed long ago to be a twenty-four hour diner.
After about an hour of trying to get to sleep last night, I finished reading High Line, the second in the Love of Sports series. It seemed more original to me than Out of Bounds. I started re-reading Tabloid Star, which is set in the same world, but decided to try yet again to go to sleep. Eventually I did. On the one hand, I really didn't want to be in the car with Mom and Dad for six hours today, but on the other hand, I would have liked to see Grandma S. I'd drive it myself, but Dad skips parts of the directions when he gives them, and I end up in Luzerne County. I hope J. really is up for going next weekend.
Later: I finished re-reading Tabloid Star, and read With This Ring, the continuing adventures of Josh and Ryan, the protagonists of Tabloid Star.
Mom and Dad got home around 7:30 p.m., and said that Grandma S. looked pretty good. I was glad to hear it.
I read Andrew Grey's A Shared Range. Dakota Holden spent a year in medical school, then came home when his father fell ill with multiple sclerosis, to run their ranch. He goes on vacation once a year. While on his vacation, he meets Phillip. Phillip comes to visit the ranch and brings his veterinarian friend Wally. Dakota and Wally are attracted to each other, but Dakota's closeted at home. They have some conflict because Dakota and the ranch hands shoot at wolves they see around, and Wally wants to protect them. I liked the book. I especially liked Dakota's devotion to his father, and the way Dakota's relationship with Wally developed.
