My Castaway Journal #2

The natives invited me to some kind of party. Apparently it is my mother’s 80th birthday.

Visited my brother who showed me his home brewery. He bought some small commercial components from a local bar that closed. We sampled his brown ale and it was very good.

Beer and pizza seems to be the order of the day for this party. Lots of presents were involved and cake was served for dessert.

Sat with Mom’s older brother and his son who is approximately my age. I haven’t seen my uncle in about 20 years, or my cousin in about ten.

Local ritual seems to dictate everyone compares the size of the bucks they harvested this year. This led to talking about guns and ammunition.

Many beer’s later and my elderly uncle showed everyone his medical marijuana card. This seemed to impress the natives.

WiFi is still non functional. I’ll keep this short, because typing on my phone is a pain in the butt. I wanted to write or blog a few things. This weekend is a bust on that front.

I will get rescued tomorrow. All I have to do is drive home through a blizzard.

  3. I may have laughed WAY too loud at this post. Repeatedly. I also may have needed it.
    Safe journey to you, Craig.

  6. It is incredible how dependent we are on WiFi, Craig. Sounds like a great party. My Mom also turns 80 this year.

  8. Where is Lisa and the snowplough? I have visions of her in one of those machines that shoot the snow up into the air…

  9. Well, you’re eking out the wintry feel for your blog by getting all snowed up – it sounds like a great place and time to wait out the big freeze for a few days. 😀 Not to mention lots of heart-warming human interest snippets to harvest when you do get back from the cyber-boondocks! 😛
