Hello Weenies....

Some pix of firstborn on his way out to a Halloween bash last night as Wolf O'Donnell from some video game I've never heard of.  The mother of all mothers made the shoulderpads and the tail, I made the gloves and the headgear, and FF made the bionic eye (or whatever it is).   Beats fangs and a cape anyday.....

and that's just to fill up the cracks.  Teenage boys x 4 involves some serious feeding. 
Tomorrow I have to bake muffins, plus make meatballs, while the boys load the car.
Then I have to buy fruit and bread when we arrive.
And if it rains, and they're stuck inside for too long, the food/ manchild ratio increases.
be afraid, be very afraid!!

Have you noticed....

that it's getting cloudier by the second.  It's my fault.  Sorry 'bout that.  We're due to head  over-the-border on Monday, so of course it stands to reason that the rain that hasn't appeared in the last 60 DAYS will appear the second we hit Tweed Heads.  Don't wash your car, dong hang out your sheets, and if you see anything going "two by two" head for higher ground, IMMEDIATELY.  That is all.

that I shall be a better blogger from now on.  Looking back over the year to date just shows you how totally preoccupied I have been with everything in the universe except my poor neglected blog.  And I should keep up with it, since sometimes the only way I know what the hell is going on here is to read back a few weeks.  So, based on that principle, I've been living the high life under a large rock somewhere in the far outer reaches of Planet Mongo. 
Which I totally HAVEN'T.  I've actually been crazy busy chasing my tail and trying to re-order the universe in 15 minutes a day.  And,'s going pretty much how you'd expect, really. it is.
