We have kids who are sick, have been sick, and have gotten sick again. During summer. When it is SO NOT FAIR, and 100 degrees outside with no A/C. Our very MEAN moms will not let us go swimming! SO UNFAIR.
The thing is, it IS unfair. Not our fault, but unfair nevertheless.
We aren’t at our wits end, but Wit’s End was the last street sign we saw yesterday, before everything went dark. It’s harder for the kids, who have every reason to BE at wit’s end, with one whole summer month down and still not feeling good.
We are experiencing technical difficulties.
Technically, it is difficult to get to our computer. We may be erratic (or stupid) in our posting for awhile. We have faith this too will pass. Sort of.
On other matters:
Hitting the Ignorant American stereotype right on the head, I had no idea that Fyvie was also the name of, um, one of Queen Victoria’s Castles in Scotland. To see Fyvie, Balmoral, and find out more information, click here.
Some day I will look before I leap. I promise.
Many thanks to Kate for providing the info on which prince was in the photo and pointing us to another pic of Prince Edward (see comments on previous post). I love it when readers dive in and put stuff up for us. I’d like to say I’m sorry if I came across as short in my response, or unappreciative because the horse was in bad shape. In trying to be quick, (Mommmm…why CAN’T I check my yahoo account right now??? You’ve been on the computer for FIVE MINUTES.)
I don’t think I adequately separated the two things: 1) Oooo…thanks for the link, and 2) OMGosh wow, look at that poor horse. It’s not Kate’s fault the horse is in bad shape. (!)
I believe we can look forward to a post about what kind of horse husbandry knowledge was available in the 19th century. Thankfully people have cared enough to further that knowledge so we have wormers, tests, floating, and feed for horses that can’t process forage adequately.
Mommmmmm….when are you making us breakfast? Why are you on the computer? Can I go on? Can I watch this PG-98 movie? Why not? But you SAID you’d snuggle!
Over and out. I’m going in. Cover me.
