Spent the night driving the porcelain bus last night. Bound to be the same bug that bit Jim, Shaney, and Emma last week. Apparently Rod had a mild case recently too. I hear Brian and Jody also managed to share in the fun...while flying back to Texas. I don't know when I've been so glad to be home. Sondra is taking down Christmas decorations while I rest.

I attempted this post, and the 'net ate it. Gremlins...

Slacker? What's that? Who me? Anyway...
28-23!!! War Eagle! What coach controversy? Bumper sticker seen this week: "Honk if you've coached at 'Bama!"

Thanksgiving was great. I miss everyone already. Jacob is pretty proud of our squirrel. I think there may be another generation of Thanksgiving squirrel hunters in the family. On the other hand, Sondra is less than excited about the naked "rat" in our freezer. She's coping well.

Jacob and Erin have each had their rounds of colds this week. Erin seems to have recovered quickly but Jacob is still stuffed up. The medicine kills his fever easily but it has been going on long enough he's due a doc visit. I wonder if it'd be easier to stay healthy rolling around in that beautiful Pittsburgh snow?

Brian is now a local news TV star in Houston. For what? A fatal wreck came to rest in their back yard some 30 ft from their bedroom a bit after 1am last night/this morning. Brian and the driver tried to cut the girl out of the car since there was a small fire underneath. Authorities then wouldn't move the girl's body because it was part of "a crime scene." The brightest thing to be said about the night in TX was that the dog wasn't asleep in his normal spot.
