McCain mentioned “Joe the Plumber” almost constantly throughout the final debate — even tying him into an attack on Obama’s health care plan. But the move led to a “deer in the headlights” moment for the Republican.
Well it has been a long time since my last post. So I have a lot of new pictures as well, so while they are loading up over the incredibly slow dial-up, I fill you in.
My birthday has come and gone. We had a great day, At Stonewall Jackson’s house(yes the confederate general) there was an apple festival. WE had fun seeing cider being made, there were crafts and games. Bobbing for apples when they are hanging on a string. It was hilarious to watch and impossible to do (without a little shoulder action). On the walk home we played in some leaves(since I hadn’t done any raking by that time).
Also Mom and Dad came down and we met them at Williamsburg. The kids had a pretty good time, although there were the obligatory times we wanted to throttle them. I mean can’t you just try a new food for once? McKelvey loved being in a rented costume. “I just want to live in olden days forever,” she said.
We also went to Historic Jamestown. They had a re-creation of Powatan village as well as the James Fort. pretty neat. They had ‘interpreters’ to explain everything from the houses to how they made the moccasins. They even had a deer hide you can scrape the fur off to get leather. Let me tell you that was really gross. It really made me look at my shoes in a whole new light. We got to go on reconstructed ships of the period, which seemed to be a little bigger than Vicenni’s on the Princess Bride. I don’t even want to think about having to hang out below decks for a couple months as a passenger on one of those suckers.
I’ll post more soon, (or at least in less of a delay) in the meantime, go back up your computer.
