We are Family

R:tAG's parents and sister are visiting us, and it is lovely to see them again. Of course, we've had to modify our standard visitor routines a bit* but it's a good challenge to think of new things to do, or new ways to do old things.

I've also had to pretend to not be a complete slob, but that's probably all for the best.

On Saturday we went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row, briefly down to Carmel, and on Sunday up to San Francisco (Fisherman's Wharf, the Golden Gate Bridge and the Golden Gate Park** to see the Gee's Bend quilts at the De Young museum). And during the week, R:tAG took 'em to the Winchester Mystery House, Santana Row, Los Gatos and to other shopping opportunities. And tonight they're going to a Giants game (I won't be home in time to join them). So I think that makes up for not having TV for them to watch.

And R:tAG's mum still found time to make us a huge batch of perogies. Yay!

And it's time for me to clear out my bookmarks:

A new Halloween idea
High Fashion - I think it's official, fashion designers are flat-out insane.
The Cultural Role of Apologising - very interesting

* Turns out two-hour hikes up and down hills aren't so attractive to the over-sixty set. Who knew?

** Which is not actually contiguous to the Golden Gate Bridge, mysteriously enough.

    Did the new TV have a meltdown or gravity-induced fault that we have not heard of yet?

    If that had happened, you'd have heard the weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth all the way in Tokyo.

    We just don't receive broadcast signals on our TV (haven't for about seven years now). We use it for DVD watching and gaming. And not many of our DVDs were to the taste of R:tAG's family.
