Here are a few grandkid pictures from earlier in the week.
The Boy picked up this cat condo thing off of Freecycle. It needs a little work, but otherwise should give his cat another thing to destroy. Darci is helping to remove some of the rope that a previous cat shredded.
She managed to get a big enough chunk of rope off that her and Riley could have a tug of war. (Actually, I believe they were trying to do a jump rope thing, but have some issues with the concept.)
The next day Mrs Notthat took them to the San Mateo County Fair. There were a number of good pictures, but these two really captured the highlight for them - riding the ponies.
In other news, Mrs Notthat and I are flying to Miami on Sunday so that we can get on a boat and test my ability to avoid getting seasick. We are going as part of a class reunion sort of thing (35 years!). Here's a map showing our route.
We will float from Miami to Key West to Cozumel and back. The red asterisks indicate predicted points where I will have issues and will be producing chum. (Yes, I know - these massive cruise ships are as smooth as a California freeway and I won't even know we are on the open sea. I'll let you know on Friday how all that worked out. And I know how "smooth" our freeways are.)
So you might not hear much from me after tomorrow.
Unless you are in the cabin next door.
That's it - move along...
PS: Actually they have an internet plan on board that involves me handing them a large sum of money and them hooking me up to a 9.6KBaud dial up modem. I probably won't be able to resist.
