It's that time of the year again.

There's a big Firefighting Conference thing going on in Indy.  Why is that important?  Well-- I have some squirrel friends that  work as volunteer firefighters and attend using their vacation and their own dollars. So every year, my home in Indy, which is now my crash pad, is the docking station, with showers, laundry, food and a place to hit the rack, for one or all.  Barkley used to love these visits as they'd send the coolest high tech, high energy dog toys out in advance of arrival, something to enjoy in my previously fenced yard.

It looks like a testosterone bomb went off in here and Abby is looking perturbed that couch, futon and all extra sleeping spaces are no longer hers.

There's many years of history here, and there will be some tales told under the "Cone of Silence" where a toast is raised and at least one tale will be told about a wrong way tank and a Bosnian goat (a tale that's in my next book but not told here tonight).   I don't have a real little brother of the blood kind, but I really do have my own band of little "brothers", and for that I'm grateful for their presence.

We think we have also lured Tam over for Poutine and Beer on Friday night.

I'll be back tomorrow.


  1. Hey, sounds like a heck of a time and I look forward to hearing some of the stories NOT in the next book...

  2. Enjoy and say hi to the folks for me. :-)

  3. Enjoy your company, B, and maybe they'll help you pack!

  4. Did someone say poutine?!

  5. Thanks everyone - blogger is being funky with comments again. I just got a couple from a month ago, for the first time, and two friends said they didn't see theirs show up. It's not as bad as Window's 8, but there are times. . .

  6. Poutine? I'll show up with fine Irish whiskey if there's poutine involved!!! :)


I started this blog so the child I gave up for adoption could get to know me, and in turn, her children, as well as share stories for a family that lives too far away. So please keep it friendly and kid safe. Posts that are only a link or include an ad for an unknown business automatically to to SPAM..
