Back Home

More to report later, but for now, in no particular order:

1. Tricia and Scott's new dog Peabody is a bundle of energy (and he likes to munch--very gently--on hands).

2. Dawn and Preston's new house is SWANKY. Like, really really swanky. And huge. Think Jennifer Jason Leigh's Anniversary Party from 2001, and you will be very close.

3. Dungeoness at Cumberland Island is still burned down (and gorgeous).

4. Four days of backpacking and 60 or so miles of hiking did not make an appreciable deletion in my love handlage. rats.

5. Mom and BC make mean hams. Mom would you please email me the name again to look for? I've already forgotten.

6. Neither Steven nor I have a foot fetish, photo below nothwithstanding.

7. Karen's husband Jay opened his eyes on xmas day, and we now hear he is talking. That is a big relief.

8. Lake Lanier is really drying up. But BC's sister's new house there is fabulous.

9. Rhetta's new house at Whittier Mill is tres tres tres fabulous. They are embarked on a biiiig project finishing the basement to be living space and office for Reese. Meanwhile, Rachel is giving lessons to Rhetta in how to purge. NSFR (next stop for rachel): our basement!

10. We were disappointed that we didn't have time to go to our old hood and see some of our neighbors we really miss there... hopefully next time!

11. I got to drive (well, sortof..through the misty 25mph neighborhood streets of their new Sandy Springs address) Dawn's groovy new yellow MINI! It has an on/off switch instead of a key.

12. Steven nearly put his eye out on our trek. Check the scab below the eye. Another half inch higher...omg it makes me sick to think about.

13. Mom has a new left shoulder! After we left she started working with an (Asian we hear) physical therapist. While we were there BC was doing range-of-motion exercises for her.

14. Last but not least, we encountered only a tiny baby snake (that we both almost squashed) along the trail, despite Mel's warnings! *I did make sure to zip the tent up very tight everynight though, thanks Mel*

and one more HUGE addition:

15. Amy and Matt are coming for a visit from Kansas City!!! Yay! {"Mattie is looking at your blog right now. I'm drying my tears because our forthcoming visit did not make your numbered-paragraph news report on your back-home posting."}

Gotta go make a pie for dinner! have some pork and wine and acorn squash and crust ready... i'll add some onion and carrot and thyme, hope that will be good.

Check Steven's blog, he'll post alot more pictures of our travels. I'm too ADHD.

Nice sum up. I wish that I took the camera to take some picture of D&P's fabulous home.
