ice cream: There is a nicely stocked grocery store (/bait shop) in a nearby town. I don't drink root beer, so I'll let Nick pick that.Red-
How are you going to get the ice cream up to the cabin? Which brand of root beer will you get?
Is it better or worse that you are up there with people you are not related to?
FWIW, I was reading the Al Jazeera website about the state of healthcare on Indian reservations. They cited the Department of Justice for statistics on rape on the reservations as 1 in 3 which was more than twice as many than the general population. CDC cited the general population rate as 1 in 4. I am still checking.
It's not so bad. I just limit my time spent with his sister. Enjoy her while she's pleasant, after she chews out her husband (always in a weird patronizing voice but she thinks she's using therapistspeak) a couple of times, step away and get a drink and something to do or read.
She's so annoying, when she fishes with us on the boat I bring my ipod and earbuds. She was kind of mad/insulted when she found that out on the boat, but Nick and I both try to limit conversation when fishing. Voices carry, it's a time to reflect on other things or on nothing. If Nick's mom were on the boat, I'd have to do the same thing.
Nick warned me to never agree to watch a movie with her. She talks through every movie, asks questions, makes comments, etc. She will warn you about what's about to happen if she's already seen it!
