"An Old Gold Chevy and a Place of My Own"

This morning I finished reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows to our kids. Earlier in the book Hermione said they were in the Forest of Dean, a spot she knew from camping with her parents. Jerome said, "I'm surprised she ever did anything with her parents," because our kids are unsettled by the way that Hermione attends a boarding school and then spends most of her holidays with the Weasleys. Basically, Hermione moved out of the house at age 11.

I said, "She spent her first 11 years with her parents. And then she moved out and never saw them again. Just like [Jerome]. Ooops, spoiler alert." Jerome didn't look like he found that particularly funny.

PS: A post title quoting lyrics from Crocodile Rock?! This blog has officially jumped the shark.
