My dad and I arrived at the Greyhound bus station a half hour drive away from home in Salisbury at around 9:30pm ta pick up Wakky. It was happy ta see that Wakky got ta his destination safe and sound and it was great ta see him again. I know Wakky was glad ta see me too. After a hug, my dad put Wakky's bags in the trunk and we headed for home.
When we got home and opened the front door, it took a moment for my dog, Sam, ta remember the "stranger" who was coming inside with us.
Wakky and I headed for the family room and sat on the couch where we caught up a little on what we've been doing since last time. I shared with him some things that I had forgotten about during his last vist. I showed him my other cartoon drawings (not just the Animaniacs ones). We looked through my Reptiles and Amphibians Golden Guide where I pointed out what kinds of wildlife we could find in our area since we planned on taking a nature walk the next day.
Wakky then took out his old high school yearbooks from his junior and senior years he had brought with him since last time, I had showed him mine. We strolled down his own memory lane.
I then turned on the TV to see if the baseball game on TBS was over with yet. Wakky had agreed earlier to join me for Dinner and a Movie, :) but the game kinda messed up those plans. In any case, we did watch the end of the show which was playing "The Great Outdoors". By the time the movie was over at 1:15am, all we could think about was how nice it would be ta have a nice snaf in our own nice snuggly beds. After helping Wakky pull out the sofa bed and fix it up, I went off ta my room for a nice sleep.

I got up at about 9:20am. Wakky was still asleep, I took my shower and then started ta work on a card ta go with the birthday present I had for Wakky.

I woke up around 9:00am to a knock on my bedroom door, "What?" I mumbled, "It's me," came Wakky's voice from the other side of the door. "Oh, hold on" I said, as I rolled out of bed. I opened the door and gave Wakky a hug. I suddenly could smell bacon. "Ah," I thought, "so that's why Wakky's up. He smelled breakfast." :)
Breakfast was pancakes, bacon, strawberries, and orange juice. After breakfast, Wakky and I headed ta the family room. While our breakfast settled, we listened ta my Beatles CDs while I showed him some more of my artwork, this time, the more realistic stuff. We watched a little TV and then went to my room and I showed Wakky some of the mail I have gotten from other #watertower people. Mainly Pokernose and Minerva_Fan.
I then got out some outside toys to play with and Wakky and I went outside and played Koosh Tennis for quite a while. It was fun, because it wasn't quite so hot outside that day. Yakko82 went to his friend, Brian's house.
At about 1:00pm, Wakky and I had lunch. Hamburgers left over from last night. We listened to an Animaniacs soundtrack tape that I made myself while preparing our lunch.
After lunch, I showed him a few more things that I had wanted to show him last time and we played some video games together on the Sega Genesis.
Around 4:00pm, Mom said it was time to leave ta go to the movies. Neither Wakky, Yakko82, or I had seen Titanic and we figured that it was about time. Since it was my dad's birthday, my parents were going out to eat some place fancy. After picking Yakko82 up from Brian's house, they dropped "us kids" off at the movie theater on the way to the restaraunt.
The movie (was LONG) finished at 7:35pm. We went home and ordered Chinese food for those of us that hadn't eaten yet. Pork lo mein, chicken moo shu, and wonton soup was the meal shared beween Yakko82, Wakky, and me.
After dinner, at about 9:00pm, Wakky decided to take his shower since he figured that he wouldn't have enough time ta do that in the morning. We needed ta be up EARLY the next day, so Wakky wouldn't miss his bus. I emptied the dishwasher while waiting for him and then sat down in the family room.
Wakky and I finished a video game we had on pause when we left for the movies, I showed Wakky some of the other video games we had, and then for some reason, we watched the last 30 minutes of a two hour Touched by an Angel episode. Yakko82, then asked if I had shown Wakky our funny music videos that I made. I hadn't, so we did that then. Afterwards, we watched Murphy Brown at 11:30pm and then turned on Nick at Nite.
We stayed up late that night, purely due ta the fact that we didn't wanna say goodbye and the sooner we went ta sleep, the sooner tomorrow would come and we would hafta say goodbye and we didn't want ta DO that... *sigh*

I woke up at 6:30am. Today Wakky was going home. I threw on some clothes and freshened up a little. By that time, Wakky was up and my parents were back from walking the dogs. We had just enough time ta eat a quick breakfast, get Wakky's stuff in the trunk, and then hit the road.
We got ta the Salisbury bus station at 7:15am. I hugged Wakky goodbye tightly and a few tears were shed (mostly by me :). We waved goodbye from the car and then drove away, leaving Wakky with his bus.
