“Haven’t been across Grandpa Eddy’s Bridge in 40 years,” I say, looking at young Tim, angry at being peeled off of his iPad for a walk with his grandfather, “I heard they’d renovated it last year.”

“This is stupid,” decides Tim with a 7 year old’s vehemence. We make the right turn, head down.
“Stupid? He took me up into the forest where he had a still.”
“A still what?”
“Still haven’t figured out there’s more to life than electronics.”
We go up the hill quite a bit slower than I used to.
The old oak marks the turn.
There it is.
