Quick update: internet out at houghton lake This warning has been canceled!

underwaterThat means the webcam can’t upload photos. Seeya later, KW

……aaaaannnnnd it’s back. Not sure why the webcam is still showing photos from this morning. Stay tuned…

Ho hum. No Internet at Houghton Lake? A tragedy? Except that… Not! I was able to *post* that our Internet service at the cabin was out because the Edge was not out and I had my iPhone! And the times, they are a-changing… Everything has been back to normal for hours now. The webcam was out for a little longer than the rest of it because I was working and the GG was taking a little snooze in front of the TV and all of that stuff needed to be re-a-starrrted. It should be back to normal now.

We were “watching” the Duggar family on the toob. 17 kids or is it 18 kids and counting. All biological children and only one set of twins. The oldest child is (as near as I can figger) a year or so *younger* than Mouse, my youngest child, and the show I watched today (while writing a functional specification for work) was getting married. He and his wife-to-be were saving their first kiss for marriage. Yes, that is what they said. I have heard of this family before. I didn’t know they were on TV. I’m sure that many people have opinions about people that have that many children. All I will say is that it wouldn’t be my cup of tea. But if I were a regular TV watcher, I could get addicted to shows like that. I mean, I once got addicted to watching the likes of Dallas and Dynasty. And, uh, er, Love Boat.

I thought I had more to say but we’re getting a birthday dinner ready for the Twinz of Terror and the TV is on loud and there’s a lot of crazy talk about hot flashes and 30-something married guys with children who actually think baggy old 50-something gals that are old enough to be their mothers are date-worthy and that’s all I am-a-gonna say. But. FER KEE-REIST!!!

    So the boys get to celebrate their birthday today and tomorrow. Too bad I didn’t show up because I could have started celebrating mine early too. Oh well. Ya snooze, ya lose! Happy Birthday you two. I’m glad that you are the gift I got for my 4th Birthday. You are the gift that keeps on giving. I could not have asked for more.

    Did I forget to tell you that I saved my first kiss for marriage too? HA HA HA I am kept busy enough with two; I can’t imagine how a family of that size can function except as a small community with older kids helping a LOT and rearing the younger ones. (which I don’t think is fair to them) I think kids should be able to be kids with a moderate amount of responsibility–but also time for themselves and play time and the opportunity to do sports, dance, etc..I don’t see how that would happen with this family, but I could be wrong. Anyway, it’s your blog so I’ll shut up now!! P.S. I compulsively watched Love Boat too–and Gilligan’s Island and Hogan’s Heroes.

    Oh, I most definitely have opinions about people who have that many kids. But this is a family-friendly blog so I won’t go there. Ahem.

    And saving the first KISS for marriage? Huh.

    Like you say (so very eloquently!) — FER KEE-REIST!!!
