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.

…My, that was a fascinatingly smoky mead.

It had hops. And a ridiculously high alcohol content.  I’ll be going to bed now, thanks.

PS: Vacation is going just fine, yes. Although I have yet to have a rum punch. Soon. Soon.

My Patreon short-short-short story: ‘Vacation.’

Heh. ‘Vacation‘ merely happened to be on the rotation, just as I’m about to take one. But I’ve always thought that the larger point is valid. People do stuff that ostensibly doesn’t suit them all the time.

As always, my Patreon is here.  And monthly stuff drops tonight!  Woo-hoo! Or at least woo.

Still on vacation…

…went easier today. You gotta just break the day down into smaller units, and then win those units. It also doesn’t hurt if you dose your kids with children’s allergy medicine once you realize that the pollen count is through the roof…

The vacation is… well.

Nobody’s injured, nobody’s dead. The kids are currently quiet. I’m sure that tomorrow is another day.

Long day, and good night.

Traveling and kid-wrangling and pool time. So… talk among yourselves, I guess. Got a busy few days ahead of me, for given values of ‘busy.’

Gonna be on vacation for a couple of days…

…the kids are old enough now that amusement parks, well, amuse. And it’s Easter Break, so we’re taking a few days off. Posting will not disappear, but I’ll be doing it from a Chromebook which will slow things down. So… everybody else get some fresh air, too? It’s going to be a beautiful couple of spring days, where I am.

:poking head up: Everybody’s good? That’s great!

I’m going to go back to catching up on my reading and maybe getting more than five hours of sleep a night, OK? OK, cool, see you folks in a bit.

That moment at the time-share…

…when you realize that it has a better kitchen than you do.

Still, it’s very nice. I’d wish that I had access to this sort of thing when I was younger and my crowd needed good places for our communal drunken weekends, except that I’d probably have broken my neck on the iron spiral staircase.  Ah, ‘maturity.’  What fun…
