Sorry about the cold baths, First Guests. And the lack of air conditioning. And the lack of furniture. Oh - I see you brought your own spot for lounging!
:::giggle::: For having such weird circumstances, I must say this was a pretty fun week, all in all. I'm glad my sister-in-law and her husband live just two doors down. We enjoyed lots of yummy food (thanks to stuff thawing, but also thanks to a gas stove to cook it on). We enjoyed watching The Sound of Music on a battery-powered DVD player. We enjoyed watching the cats and poodles being silly. We enjoyed working on a puzzle in the daytime (puzzles by candlelight can make you feel a bit blind). We enjoyed a few nice, cool nights thanks to the gift of a loaned generator and window a/c unit from my dearest of friends who drove an hour to bring it to us (along with two cases of bottled water and 20 gallons of precious gasoline for the generator).
Even in the midst of a disaster, we are so very blessed.

But where is she?
Right now she is at Starved Rock State Park in Illinois. She and her grandmother are visiting with relatives and they took today to do some sightseeing.
On their way, they stopped to eat at Lambert's, Home of the Throwed Rolls.
Brooke made a new friend, Marley. He belongs to Aunt Louise and Aunt Georgia Lee. Marley decided Brooke hung the moon and I am told he follows her everywhere. That's my girl - the Animal Whisperer. She also got to do some volunteer work at a local no-kill animal shelter.
But you guys were really wanting to be down here in Louisiana. Enjoying the steaming weather. Without benefit of air conditioning and lights. Yeah. I know. You guys are jealous. Terribly, terribly jealous. What, with all that nice fall weather and everything. Umm hmm.....
