I often find my life is like this:
You are on the west side of a river, with a fox, a duck, and
a bag of corn. You must cross to the other side of the river, taking everything
with you. However, you have only a very small boat, large enough to carry you,
and one of your "traveling companions" at a time. There is no other way across.
How do you get everything to the other side of the river, without anyone eating
anyone else? (Assume none of them will eat the others if you are present. Also
assume nothing runs away if you leave it alone.)
Now, I can work this out, although I can never remember how I did it last time. In my own life, I don't manage quite so well. Two small grandsons to be collected from a halfway point, to stay the night tonight. They need to be home (96 miles away) tomorrow evening. Daughter-in-law prepared to meet again, but she's a busy doctor, and I am .....not. So. I'll take them back. But do I want to do that journey twice in one day? Not really. Plus, the Devizes Carnival Procession tomorrow evening means all the roads will be closed, so I may not be able to get back in.
I won't bother you with the furth complications. Suffice to say that this time, problem solved. Although one grandson has a friend for a sleepover tomorrow night, he and friend actually want to sleep in the living room, so I can stay over in grandson's bed. Whew.
Until next time.
