It’s going to be quiet on the site today because I’ll be gone for a chunk of the day eating delicious unhealthy food with the most important people in the universe, my descendants. After all their relationship to that strangest of all human beings, me, ensures that I find them infinitely fascinating. I will impose myself on them and assume the role of “one of the boys.” Whatever they want to do I’ll join in.
And I’ll be a charming guest for their parents too. But it is a well known fact that grandchildren are much more fun than children, especially after they become parents. So that won’t be as fruitful an activity to my mind. And I’ll be nice to Camera Girl. But really that’s her children’s job today. It’s right there in the title of the day. But I’ll still be nice to her. She deserves it.
The day has dawned and it is sunny, butterflies were fluttering by and the stupid blue birds are complaining that once again they were dispossessed of the houses I built for them by birds with more grit and verve. I intend to go out now and perambulate in the Fields of the Lord and restore my faith in creation as a whole if not in the so-called pinnacle of it.
I hope all of you have a good day with your families and I’ll contribute something today when I can.
