on the road again

It took most of the afternoon and well into the night for Lon to drive Hannah home for Thanksgiving.

"Do you think she's all right?" Ellie spent most of the afternoon working on pies. Charlie was helping, making snakes out of pie dough.

"Well, she had Kenny to talk too." Lon just shrugged.

"Good, old Kenny." Ellie supposed it might be a romance. They seemed to be close friends.

"And he does like to talk." Lon yawned, getting a glass of milk.

"It couldn't have been that bad." Ellie smiled bringing him some sugar cookies that were by Charlie's design. He liked to make hands.

"I guess, you know, who's going with me, to pick her up." He crunched on a cookie.

"Really? Are you serious?" Kenny was going back with him?

"Yeap, Kenny can hardly wait." He looked up at Ellie.

"Should I come?" Ellie wondered.

"It would be nice to have a grownup, but I know." He sighed wishing there was an easier way to do this.

"Syd could keep the kids. It would be fine. I'll call her." Ellie knew they could do this.

"Sure, its a date." He ate another cookie as if he was determined to get through this holiday.
