Brice Belly Bug


We had a rough night the other night, we all got the"Brice" stomach bug. Without going into too many fun details, some of us were up all night throwing up and some of us were up all night with...well, it rhymes with "spy a tree, uh". Anyway, after 2 hours sleep I got to meet two wonderful people who are very much in love and have their wedding coming up next Spring; Abbi and Martin. We had a great time in Camdenton and the colors were just wonderful. I'll have the whole gallery up soon.

It's Fall

Once again, Mt. Vernon's Apple Butter Makin' Days was filled with color and crafts and carnival food. I had a cheesecake-on-a-stick dipped in chocolate and a deep fried apple fritter covered in cinn-sugar and we had brats and kraut and German potato salad and homemade rootbeer. We didn't win at bingo this year which has to be the first time for that but we still had fun.
Then we had the church hayride and had hotdogs and chocolate-carmel pie and hot chocolate and nachos and everything you can think of. I almost went over on my food points but luckily, most of that stuff isn't on the little sheet of paper so I get to estimate what I think. I'm thinkin I had about 15 points all together, when you include the 3 points for the oatmeal I had to start the day. Being healthy takes some serious math skills.
