Very cute. I'd go crazy watching over all those little guys until they got adopted, though.
Adopted? I would move to the country and raise my pack of adorableness.

Google Ravinia and Goat Rodeo. Consider this a written invitation if you two want to come up for it. A number of us have met IRL- we don't bite. Housing could be arranged.

Thanks! I wish it wasn't such short notice or I would actually consider that!!! And it would be fun to meet the Chicago posse IRL!!! Maybe at some point I'll make it up for a long weekend! Several of us have met down here and, trust me, RACE *is* as scary as he seems! J/K

There's a duck race that's going to be held in Cook County. It's for the Special Olympics.

Rubber duckies.

I was thinking of buying some ducks to be in the race.

You buy ducks -- then I am assuming -- they give you their race numbers. Then they put the ducks in and whichever duck wins, if it's yours you win.

I don't know what the prize is. I just think it's fun to have a duck in the race and it's a good cause.

Right. Also a lot of people don't really get that it's the WHOLE thing, not *just* the guitar, or *just* the drums, or *just* the lyrics. Ah well you and I babe will be amongst the chosen few who will take down the priest of the temple and show the world a better way through real music.

Well, my lovely children have gotten me sick again. I spent all afternoon, a long hot sticky afternoon, snuggling on the couch with them and thought we were in the clear. Everybody was feeling better and asleep until 12:45 when Nunu woke us up to inform us she had to throw up.(Why do they do that?!) Barely made it to the bathroom but not quite to the toilet. <sigh> Now I've woken up with the same feeling, however *I* will make it to the appropriate bathroom fixture.
