Happy Holidays – short version

Back safe and sound from the Midwest where we had a fantabulous Christmas with the folks. Details and in-depth commentary to come at a later date, but in brief:

- We were stranded in the middle of Kentucky on I-24 for ten hours on Wednesday PM/Thursday AM. I mean car in park, bumper-to-bumper, no movement either way, stranded. They called the national guard out and opened shelters for people who had plowed their vehicle into a snow drift. But overall, we were pretty lucky. We didn’t skid into a ditch or get stuck, plus we had brought munchies and filled up the tank with gas right before hitting Kentucky.
- Acquired many shiny prezzies.
- Hobkin had a great time at skunk camp but is delighted to be back at home. He’s currently asleep in my lap.
- We’re back home now. Matthew’s asleep on the couch. The world is good.

Going to try to catch up on my Friends List now. Try . . .

Hope everyone had a great Christmas/Solstice/Kwanzaa/whatever!

Came home to:
214-day “good but not quite” from Weird Tales
and
125-day SALE to Cricket. Woohoo! Got my sales fix and notched a final end-of-year sale to my belt!

    Eugie,

    Pardon my cluelessness when it comes to all those “slanty eyed people that all look the same”; but do you–or know somebody that can read/translate Japanese?? I need some help with something ASAP.

    Thanks,

    Mike

      Urg. Sorry, Mike, I can’t help you out. I do English and only English (well, if there was a gun to my head I might be able to manage French . . . and a smidgen of Russian). My mother tried to get me to learn one of them slanty-eyed languages (Chinese) when I was little, but it didn’t take.

  3. So after you and your husband left Hobkin, how did your friend say he acted?
