Stranger Than Fiction: The Dakota Tales Part 1

Not in my wildest imaginings 30-something years ago...

I didn’t–I couldn’t–stay up to see it two time zones past my bedtime, but I think my daughter was seen on The Tonight Show last night, being interviewed by PeeWee Herman.

Oh yeah, there’s a story here, and we’re out in South Dakota right now to get the first hand view of it–though our first purpose is to be with the grand daughters while her parents–and especially their mom–is off on a big adventure not so far away.

And I will tell you that from a parental perspective, there has been both pride and terror, apprehension and elation that such an “opportunity” has fallen upon our first-borne.

I’ll wait to tell more until I can provide pictures to support my story. Wait–I think I have one in email I can show you. Hold on. Yeah, that’ll pique your curiosity a bit. There will be more, I promise, since the cat is out of the bag.

In the end, if you can’t change your child’s mind, you give them all the support you can. We did it for our son when he insisted he was going to walk the back roads of America from Bar Harbor to Goose Creek, and in the end, that turned out to be a valuable experience for him and for us. We’re hoping this will be another line in that particular score of music made by our children that we cannot hear until it’s done.

  1. What a Hoot!! Wait, she’s a Hooters waitress, right? No matter, she’s adorable. What a photo for the ages, for her children, for you to show around Floyd, on your blog, etc., etc. Don’t leave us waiting too long for the rest of the story.
