The Brick and Daughter #2 left for Taylor Park this morning. They'd planned on heading out Saturday morning -- but during Keith's birthday supper Thursday night, he and Daughter #1 gave us all an extra gift: the flu. The Brick dragged himself to work on Friday, then spent the next few days shivering and trying to get warm. He finally started to feel better, albeit very tired, last night.
Daughter #2 came out of it faster...but she didn't feel that great, either. I seem to be teetering on the edge, but so far am staying inside the bowl.
They'll be gone all week.
Keith got a doe with bow and arrow this past weekend, and snagged a roadkill buck, which the DOW (Department of Wildlife) okayed. Daughter #2 and Keith (yes, them of the Bigfoot Incident) will have lots of meat, even if she doesn't get anything. I'm hoping, though, they will.
I get to stay home, work on elections...and let the chickens in and out. Maybe even get some writing done - who knows. Meanwhile:
