Fortunately, the infection stayed in the skin. Even more fortunately, one of the kids in his class has parents who are both physicians who helped with the pus situation, which developed after the antibiotics kicked in. All I’m saying is that Hallmark doesn’t make cards for that. And.they.should. He’s doing much better now. Practically healed. Antibiotics combined with pus drainage can do amazing things.
Because we go big around our house, the enormous, major, life changing events don’t stop there. Katy Kat has gotten herself engaged to a very nice fella. So we made the practically required trip to Low’s Bridal in Brinkley. And Holy Cow! The girl found what was probably the most perfect wedding dress in the history of wedding dresses. I’m not allowed to show photos. The whole experience was so lovely. I can’t imagine a nicer day.
I gotta tell you, though. It’s stunning how exhausting watching another person try on dresses can be. When we got home, I took a three-hour nap.

A couple of kinda funny, devil-may-care pieces have popped up on my radar. Something about the tone really appeals to me. Thought you might like them too.
- From the Huffington Post: Hillary Clinton does not have time for your games: The secretary of state doesn’t care what you think of her outfit – and that’s fantastic.
- From Gizmodo: Generation X is Sick of Your Bullshit: This is a message from Internet, the generation that became the voice that set the tone for everything you love about the Net. And it’s pissed.
