oh you missed me, didn’t you?

or, like my brother, maybe you were just tired of looking at that stupid pink chair. well don’t get too excited, you will be looking at this for a while too.

we traveled to deary for thanksgiving this year.  pretty much beyond the reaches of civilization.  my dad had to keep the stove going day and night for a week to get the middle shop warm enough for human habitation.  it turned out very lovely and rustic and almost warm even.

the ping pong table helped with maintaining circulation.  (i just sat closer to the fire.  someday i will have my own fire and won’t be heard from again.)

jael and granddad.

playing a very loose interpretation of checkers with grandma.

looking smug.

and “i’m just sooo funny.”

i think someone left a bowl of truffles laying out most irresponsibly.

the little weirdo.

we traded reuben for five foreign exchange students.  now i call that a deal.  all decidedly better looking and with fabulous hair.

surveying the damages.  no one will ever know with my excellent decoy.

and we even made it home alive.  after my uncle called us idiots and bought us snow tires.  those city folks should all just go back where they came from, you know.  where they have snow plows and macy’s and williams and sonoma and indian buffets….

    We did have a lovely time. We had 25 guests for Thanksgiving, and I enjoyed visiting with them all. Just know when you come to the Germains plan on an adventure.

    I wish you’d quit cutting Jael’s bangs. We must disguise that bulging forehead.

    she brought it on herself. if you want to blame someone, blame the person who bought her the pink scissors. (you know who you are.)
