Just a T-shirt? (posted by Lani)

I have to admit, as I looked at those pictures and read the story I kept wondering one thing. Well, two things. The first thing was, how the hell can one kid eat that much pasta, much less come back for seconds? Of course then I remembered Jim, and how he ate at that age, and I scratched that question. The important one, though, was: Who cleaned up? 76 kids, some adults, enough pasta to feed a small country ... who cleaned up? Because if it was you, you deserve waaaay more than a stinkin' t-shirt.

While you were slaving away over hot pots and pans of pasta, I was off to Kentucky for a quick visit with Jim. He looks great, doesn't he? A visit to Jim of course also entails a visit to Boo; I'm tickled that he still seems to remember me, he was very cuddly and affectionate. We spent a lot of time talking, we went out to eat at the restaurant (Woody's) where Jim is working now, we talked some more. Friday evening Ethan and I went out to eat with my dear friend Josh and his lovely friend Jessie, since Jim had to work; we went to Acres of Land for a very enjoyable dinner and some surprisingly good wine.

Saturday we all went out for sushi, poked around at some neat places in Lexington, and then I headed back home. The visit was far too short. However, I did manage to shoehorn in time to discover a very neat yarn shop in Lexington, ReBelle, and some a small a considerable stash enhancement may possibly have occurred. Also Ethan had brought back some yarn from his grandmother's estate, not the least of which was 8 or 10 balls of spectacular Italian mohair. Steve just sighed when I walked back into the house with a suitcase full of yarn, bless his heart. I am rapidly approaching SABLE here, and that's AFTER I sent two boxes of wool that I knew I'd never use off to an internet friend. I console myself that (a) I have some fabulous stuff, and (b) I AM being productive, even if I'm not the world's fastest knitter. Maybe next post or so I'll show you just how I'm being productive!

The clean up wasn't too bad, it was all paper and bottles of Gatorade, so we just have a few more bags of garbage than usual. Don washed the crock pots, and the house is almost back to normal. I just have to put back all the tchotchkes.

Jim looks really good, and I love that you are staying with that flattering bob for your hair. It looks great!
