I think I am going out for pancakes.

Found a screen shot of the tornado that hit my home town Sunday night. the damage there was significant, but not anywhere close to Joplin or LaCrosse or other cities. Couldn't find my sister for a couple of days and they have a huge old maple in their yard that I was concerned about...... if it falls... it falls on their house.  She is OK, theri house is ok....

but she is, as a retired teacher, very concerned about their household budget.... thinking of eliminating all 'social services' to her husband as a way to saving money.  I didn't ask further.

Boy Wonder is home for a week.... or at least he is about town, somewhere. Very hard to keep track of.  He is determined to see all of his college friends that are still here.... cause, gees, he hasn't seen some of them for MONTHS!  The other night we sat around at his mom's and were able to view all the "out takes" from the new internet commercial they are filming.  Rather reminded me of his grandfather showing old home movies.  I mean, it was good....... but how much of a 60 second commercial for a rubbish removal service can you watch?  Obviously....... he thinks you CAN spend hours doing so.  Slightly more interesting than watching CNN.

I think I'll go out for pancakes.

Have you tried catching one of those tornadoes in a bottle, corking it, surreptitiously evacuating all the non-politicians out of DC, taking the Amtrak hopefully some 16-hour phone caller won't force an extra stop then uncorking the bottle so all the non-non-politicians get taken to Neverneverland or Oz or the ninth circle of hell? Worth a shot, and fail or no, pancakes!
