Ode to my In-laws:

too short a visit

there presence has me craving

Grand Central Station

.

As we know in the world of haiku, sometimes short is sweet. My in-laws were in New Hampshire for just two days and it was wonderful to see them. Penelope had a blast. Grandma and Penny danced around the house like butterflies. Grandpa cracked Penny up and had all of us giggling. And we all took a trip to the pool one day that included a swimming lesson for Penny from Grandma and finally, a trip to the Depot Station Ice Cream Parlor. And one of the flavors? Grand Central Station. I had to order this seeing as how 1. B and I used to live in New York 2. the in-laws are native New Yorkers and 3. New York tends to be a meeting ground for this side of my family. Grand Central Station ice cream? Yum!!! Caramel ice cream with chocolate rice crispies and tiny malt balls. So I am planning two trips: a trip back to the ice cream parlor and a bigger trip in November which will take us into the real Grand Central Station.
