Geoff and I haven’t been able to get to Brimfield for the last 3 years. We’ve both missed it a lot. But we were able to come this year. Some things have changed (new vendors, more food options, less parking, more 45 supporters) others have stayed the same (bargains if you know where to look, unpredictable weather, good and bad crazy, nice people).
Per usual I documented some of the odder things we encountered. Enjoy.

I am just now managing to recover from I guess what you might call a flare-up of my old back injury. For a little while, it was pretty bad. But it is getting better. I have been utilizing the collection of canes that Kelly and I got not quite six years ago when I managed, in the space of a few months, to badly injure my right knee and then my back. Probably the worst injuries, at least in terms of recovery time, that I have ever had.
But this current episode makes no sense to me.

Geoff and I are still here. He’s under the weather and I’m recovering from a little surgery. It was minor and I was in and out of the hospital in under an hour. Geoff has a more long term GI issue and so he’s been feeling a bit down for a while. We’ll be back to our more regular posting soon.
Regular visitors around here may have noticed that it’s been quiet for a while. Sometimes life gets in the way and we can’t post, I’m sure you all understand. Sometimes life hands you great material for posting and the first thought one of us has it, “that’ll make such a good post!” Then we might go days without such inspiration.
Then sometimes life kicks you in the teeth and there just isn’t anything to say. That’s what’s been happening lately.

Tonight it took two hours, a bus, and a taxi to get me from my front door to Mission church where I was singing a Holy Thursday Service (that’s Maundy Thursday to you non-Catholics out there). Normally it’s a 45 minute trip at most. Now things are about to get worse.

Because if there is one thing that the Internet needs, it’s more pictures of cats doing silly things. These are from when Scratch was still in his “Ooo, it’s that special holiday cat perch! Just for me!” phase.

And it has nothing to do whatsoever with the storm.

This past week Kelly and I ended our service with our satellite provider. Kelly had been a customer with them for some six or more years, and she loves them. But we have been unable to get them to fix our problem for us, and so we ended our service. No point in paying for something that isn’t working, especially when you are as poor as us.

I came across this on Boston.com this afternoon. I’m not one to generally put much faith in medical studies because one is generally the exact opposite of the next one to come down the pike. This one, however hits home for me.
