Here's Your Hat, What's Your Hurry?

This morning, Mrs. Robbo, together with the Llama-ettes, set off for the vast, secure compound of Fort LMC. The point of their visit was to come and see the baaaay-bee.

I, too, was to be part of the mission, but when I awoke I found that I had a distinct touch of bronchitis and other symptoms of the bug that has been hovering around Orgle Manor for the past week or so. Thus, in order not spread the infection, I elected to stay home. Mrs. Robbo, I believe, was deeply suspicious of my ailment, but there it is. Cough. Cough. (Also. starting next week I have a positive bear of a remainder of the month, with multiple out of town depositions to deal with, and I need to rest up before taking the plunge.)

Anyhoo, there is still some question as to whether this is going to be a one or two night visit. Before she left, Mrs. Robbo was wondering out loud just how long she could stick the rich mixture of a not-sleeping-through-the-night-yet newborn, the Future ROTC Scholarship Recipient, his little sister the Princess and our crew of Llama-ette howler monkeys, and whether Mrs. LMC would understand if she cut short her stay.

"You know," I said, "Mrs. LMC is probably having exactly the same reservations as you and may end up wanting to throw you out as much as you want to leave."

I have a feeling there will be an amicable meeting of the minds on this point.

I have been suffering through some sort of head cold this past week. My boss was understanding of my desire not to spread it around at work. It's nice to have 400+ hours of sick leave saved up.

This is the time of year when my sinuses are attacking my head. Not fun.

If you're in OH, stop over!
