Poem for Wednesday and Fredericksburg Battlefield

I had to get Daniel up early -- "early" for him meaning before 10 a.m. -- to get his ex-wisdom teeth checked. The oral surgeon put some more clove oil on the extraction sites to prevent dry socket, ordered him to rinse more with salt water, and otherwise said he looked fine, which was a relief to everyone. Meanwhile my father picked up Adam to play tennis with him, and when they were finished, he took us all out to lunch at the pancake house, which was delightful.

In the afternoon, Adam worked on his health homework, I worked on an article, and Daniel worked on...well, probably Minecraft. I took a walk in the woods but it wasn't quite cool enough even under the trees to be really enjoyable, though the chipmunks didn't seem to mind. Paul decided to make meatballs for dinner, then those of us interested enough to care watched Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, in which Robert Pattinson is adorably young, David Tennant is adorably evil, and Draco Malfoy is more adorable as a ferret than a boy.
