Pre-Rhinebeck Rush

I'm running on three hours' sleep, haven't packed, have to drop the car off at the garage (which is, admittedly, only a two minute walk away) and we're supposed to be loaded up and on our way in a few hours. Since we got home from Peru a scant 107 hours ago, I've spent 45 hours or so working, 4 hours commuting, and most of the rest sleeping, doing homework and trying to spend what little time was left with David.

So it is in that spirit that I offer you this random photo from Peru:

If you will be looking for us at Rhinebeck this weekend, please note that we will be in a different spot from previous years. Up until now we've been in Barn 39, which is where Franklin will be signing copies of his book on Saturday. This year, however, we will be in Barn 31, which has a highly-coveted cement floor instead of sometimes-beetle-larvae-infested bark mulch.

In case a visual will help, here is the interactive ("I do not think it means what you think it means.") map lifted shamelessly from the festival website.



The weather is supposed to be perfect for warm woolies this weekend, so we hope to see you there!

That photo leaves me speechless (shut up; it happens sometimes).

I hope you have a great weekend at Rhinebeck; I wish I were going :-(

I'm going to make a real effort to find you this time...

I think the mapmakers are a TEENY bit sketchy of the geography of the fairgrounds as well as the meaning of the word interactive.

See you this weekend!

So I'm looking at this map wondering where the numbers are... and why those trees look so funny. Combination of stress, oncoming cold, lack of sleep... but I see it now! And I'll come find you at some point.

Welcome home from your trip! And have a great time on your trip! :)

Now I must go explain to the Absurdly Gi-normous Kitty what he just saw on the computer. He is very confused and needs "the talk." Thanks for that...

-beetle-larvae-infested bark mulch?!?

Have fun you guys! You are both under strict orders to hug the snot out of Knitzu. She needs all the support she can get right now and I can't be there so I'm trusting you to take care of that detail. A Tuck smooch wouldn't hurt her either!

I am shallow enough to admit I wish I had boobs like that. Have fun at Rhinebeck.

Marcy said...

Hmmmm, just a wild guess, here, but I'm thinking that is not traditional garb, there.

I hope you'll give us lots of stories and pics of Peru when you have some time! Jealous!

Each nip points up to the nostril of the opposite side! Upwardly cross-eyed nips, AMAZING! I couldn't even stand on my head to make mine do that.
