Almost midweek update

You know that LJ Crush thing? well it seems someone has a public crush on me, but I'm not shelling out $4 to find out who, so if the crusher wants to fess up, they can, I won't bite...hard.

Saturday when Iwas in Abingdon for the rendezvous/reenactment thingy, a house exploded. At first they thought it was maybe a Meth lab but now they are saying natural gas explosion. Anyway, ti was loud and shook he whole town. It killed a small infant and injured five others. The house was flattened, the roof came to rest on a neighbors house and two houses around the site caught fire. Big freaking mess. Not a pretty sight ether. Kinda took the wind out of all our sails for the rest of the day. I did have a good time catching up with Cougar and Russel and the rest of the reenactment crew. Cougar and I got to trading beads and I actually made $50 from him because I knew he would want the chevrons I had. Cougar has been spending alot of time down at Fort de Chartres which he pronounes Fort Chart. He wants me to come down for the Winter Rendezvous on November 1. If Deb is doing OK by then, I just may. Bill and Nona had out their dulcimers and tiny had a picolo and they were playing tradional music and we were all dancing. Bill broke out the brown jug and we all passed around the Apple Pie (cinammon schnapps, Yukon Jack, apple juice and cinammon sticks) though I only had a small tin cup full since I had better than an hour to drive home and it was raining hard. I may make some of that stuff to keep around for parties, that was good.

Sunday was spent canning again and helping thefolks get ready to head back to NC. It's a record. They were here for 3 weeks and not a single argument! i'm not complaining. Plus Dad bought a new (for us) 4 wd truck for the farm, I'll be having fun as soon as the corn is out of the fields. I was productive on the canning. I got 9 jars of grape jelly, 14 pints of Tropical Terror and 2 quarts of spagetti sauce and used the last of the ripe tomatoes. That's it for the tomatoe stuff for the year though I still have about a bushel of green tomatoes so I may look around for another recipe for green tomatoe salsa and make that. Beyond that, I still have some more grape and plum juice, some starwberries and some raspberies so it will either be a multiberry jam weekend or a wine making weekend coming up.

Deb has appointments all this week. I think we may be dumping the epilepsy diagnoses in favor of paroxysmal tachycardia which sounds more like her symptoms anyway. The depakote has done absolutley nothing except make her more tired. We are also going to see a homeopath and get started on some natural treatments I think.

Fols just called and they were going through Alamance County, NC on their way home. Of course Dad has already devised a whole list of stuff for me to get started on before Xmas when they come out again. I'm just ready for a quiet weekend at the farm and maybe get some fishing it or a walk with Jake in the woods. Of course if anyone wants to come visit me, I'm up for it.

Wow, Deb was diagnosed with Epilepsy? That's what the doctors here are trying to diagnose me with too... As far as the crush thing, I don't find that hard to believe at all that someone has a crush on you, bro. You're a great guy. My thoughts and prayers are with your wife and I hope she get's healed soon. I will be picking up some new stones today to purify and use for healing...I'll send some energy Deb's way.^_^ People often ask why don't I jsut heal myself, and I told them that I see it as a selfish act on my part, that I set out to do this to help others,not myself, but that's just my own odd logic.^_^; Take care.

I find it harder to treat those really close to me. hard to be objective where you need to be.

Not me because I am more bonded with the person, all of us will be pulling for her and you.:)

Dude somebody has a secret crush on me according to that thing. I'd pay the $4 to find out who but it'd be aking to signing their death warrant when my woman found out.

Yeah, I'm kinda inerested, just not interested enough to pay $4 for it. Cheap bastard ain't I?

It's not that your cheap, it's that $4 to find out useless information is a bit steep. It's not that I don't care, it's that I don't care $4 worth.

I got the same thing! I thought it was an advertisement, but it was one of those ads saying someone had a crush on me. It isn't worth the $4 to find out who, so I must be cheap too.
