I actually arrived home late(ish) on Monday. Tuesday was spent decamping, so to speak, getting all the renfaire sales items out of the trailer, getting most of my clothes out, (I still need to get the dirty clothes. Can anyone loan me a gas mask?), and making sure the batteries are out of any items like radios, so I don't end up with a nasty mess next year when I try using the things.
This is interesting. I am typing this at the sub station. The back door lock broke, and the locksmith is working on it as I type. Large metal door, a saw, and lots of buzzes and thumps. When all is said and done, the deputies will not have to enter through the front, they can come through the back again. Considering the bathroom is about four steps from the back door, this will be a welcome improvement for several of them! Seconds count!!
This week I lost 1.4 pounds. I think that being a pack mule had something to do with it. If I had to move something, I tied a wagon to my waist, and pulled with legs and walking sticks. Dad took the rear, keeping the

Something to drink? Walk.
Potty? Walk, except at night, when I used the porta-potty. (I have my limits...)

What I did, was find all the people that know how to set it up, get ladders, get other people away, so that there was enough space, and scare up parts, as needed. All in all, I am wondering why I don't have little stumps down below my ankles, as much as I walked!
Oh, and I walked around faire once or twice, too.
Amazingly enough, the morning after faire, I still was able to get up and get in my half hour of exercise with Rudee. I wasn't exactly running a sprint, but I was able to get him motivated, and keep a good pace, so I think all went okay. Tuxedo was surprisingly nonchalant about my being gone, usually he's like a suction cup to my leg after I've been gone, so when he was so "yeah, hi, oh, you're home, good..." it surprised me. Then I found out that Mr. I Don't Like Cats has been petting and playing with him a lot during the time I was gone.
So, I have an award, I will cover that tomorrow. Thank you Chai Chai!
And now, I guess I should make the vague attempt to see if I need to do anything for anyone, here. I haven't needed to of late, but I will have a newsletter I write coming up, and so...
I need to type!
