Going on mini-Pennsic vacation! With the kids*!

Gonna be busy for the next couple days, and downright absent for a couple more.  I gotta bring the phone, but other than that don’t be surprised if this site does update at all over the weekend.  We are going to try to, you know, breathe fresh air and chill the heck out.

PS: OK. I may bring the Kindle. Or I may just bring some, hey, physical books and whatnot.  It’ll be interesting to see what happens first: relaxation, or withdrawal.

*…Pray for us.

Off to the social whirl.

Everybody have a good Fourth of July weekend.

Yup, Christmas is kicking into high gear, here.

Expect erratic posting for the next week. You all know how that goes, folks: two sets of families, children will be melting down by Wednesday, all that good stuff.

It’s been a rough year, huh? But that’s OK. Makes you strong. Like bear!

Light posting for the next couple of days.

Nothing bad: we’re just getting in some Gramps time for the kids.  That means not much in the way of posting, though.  It should be a quiet weekend anyway…

Well, the kids are back…

…the wife will be wandering back in at some point in the next few days. It will all depend on just how hot and humid western Pennsylvania gets between now and Saturday, really.  So… things are getting back to normal.  I’ve had better holidays, to be honest; but it wasn’t a complete waste and I’m not a factory worker in Shanghai, so what do I have to complain about, hey?

Either Suicide Squad or Star Trek today…

…haven’t decided yet, although I suspect that Suicide Squad might be ahead on points. Also, either the Home Depot (I need childproofing stuff and maybe some twine) or the Asian market afterward. I haven’t decided THAT yet, either. Alas, the vacation is getting compressed because my kids will be coming back from their Nana’s four days early; fortunately, all the really hard craft projects were already done. The rest can be spaced out between now and Tuesday.

Vacation and regular posting starts tomorrow.

I know that that’s not how it usually goes, but: there’s only so many hours a day I can spend catching up on my television watching. I have to do something creative and goodness knows I’ll have the time for that. It’s gonna be interesting, no?

Welp, we’re back.

Now it’s just a matter of getting my wife packed for Pennsic. And then… oh, dear. I will be stuck all alone in the house for maybe a week. This hasn’t happened in a very, very long time. I’m not sure how I’m supposed to function under those conditions…

Fun day today.

Two concerts – sea shanties and 18th century Baroque – an interconnected museum tour, a carriage ride, and of course rum punches and the like. Nice to have a day that’s not particularly run-around-and-do-this, you know? My wife and I needed the break.

And now I’m going to zonk out. Because, hey, rum punches.

Today will be a day of art and air conditioning.

There are any number of museums here which the wife and I have not seen, largely because we have children and getting kids through boring museums is often a dark art itself.  Also, and perhaps much more importantly: IT IS GORAM HOT HERE.  Worse, the humidity is at the point where air spirits are simply walking around and drenching random people with water in order to make quota. Seriously, it’s gotten to the point where I want to sprinkle salt and maybe some lemon pepper on the air, the better to help with the air’s mouth feel.

PS: Everything’s fine and we’re having a good time. Not least because we’re being smart about this vacation. Like doing cultural stuff in places with HVAC.
