Let me just start by saying that I had good intentions. I went out in the yard today to collect all the branches, limbs, twigs, etc. that Hurricane Katrina left in her wake, and as I started collecting them I kept noticing all the pretty lichens and other fungi on the limbs that had fallen. I went in and got my camera and the limb removal ceased. :D Oh well...they'll still be there tomorrow.
My Scoot (Brooke) is coming home this weekend. Unfortunately gas will probably be about $4 a gallon, which is just INSANE. It doesn't matter though, because if she doesn't come home this weekend she won't be able to come home for a few more weekends and there's no way I can handle not seeing her for that much longer. Hopefully traffic won't be so bad and she'll be home in time to see Touk play ball Friday night. He'll be excited to know she's there.
