Adventures With Dan

Dan came to visit this weekend. Ron and I picked him up Saturday morning and took him to eat lunch and then headed north.  Before we left Alexandria, Dan told us about a local pawn shop that he'd heard had the original "General Lee" car from the Dukes of Hazard TV show.  Just as he finished telling us about it, we turned a corner and there it was in all of it's 1970's glory!
Dan was pretty excited (as was Ron, actually) when we stopped to get a closer look.
We did a little shopping for some new clothes and shoes once we got into town.  The pups were quite ecstatic about Dan's visit.
Later Dan got to meet his new great-nephew over pizza and pasta at our house.
Baby D looks pretty content in his uncle's arms.
Ron had previously signed up for a virtual 5K because he knew Dan would like the theme---"Howl At The Moon".    Rather than just handing over the cool medal, he decided that he would appreciate it more if he earned it, so once it got dark and everyone else went home, Ron got Dan suited up in a race bib.
Then they went for a walk.  Instead of a 5K, they did 1 mile, but Dan was so proud.   When they got back, Ron awarded him the medal and he loved it!!
Weekends with Dan are hardly ever absent of some sort of drama.  Fortunately, this time it was minimal with a quick recovery and we went on to enjoy the time together.  I hosted a bridal shower this afternoon, so armed with bottled drinks (he's now switched to Dr. Pepper) and leftover pizza, Ron drove him home for me.
