After the weekly bike-ride-less Wednesday, must ride!
A possible stomachache led to Charlie in distress for a few minutes in the morning at school; he had not been happy getting off the bus. But he was soon back to being easy-going. I had sensed something might be up as Charlie awoke before 6am and wanted a walk. After the bike ride and a light dinner, he wanted two more walks.
My mom and dad are coming on Sunday for a visit: Charlie usually starts getting upset the week before they come.
So he's right on schedule.
Regarding the title, thanks to an earlier comment from Ashmire.
