Sitting on the couch with Mommy2

I have been absent for a while because I took Her Highness to a major medical center a few states away for foot surgery. She is recovering at home, commanding her subjects with her usual felicity. I am exhausted and still recovering from the trip.

Today I had an opportunity to catch a ride with Lost In Space to Mommy2's house. She took me on her errands, then let me nap on her couch for a couple of hours. After that I have had the blessing of fellowshipping with her family, including Lost In A Dream, my future daughter in law. Right now we are all snuggled in on the couch surfing the web, answering my e-mails and now posting to the bloglet.

I know something on Mommy2 that I am going to blackmail her with (or is it blackblog, in this case?) Right now I am being Her Highness and Mommy2 is making my tea! What a friend. We had a little fun earlier planning a trip (Mommys only). We can't decide whether to take the Alaska Marine Highway to Southeast Alaska to show her my old haunts, or to go talk my mom, Great Grannie, into coming to my house for a long visit. Actually neither of us has any money nor do we have child care, but it is fun to dream.

Lost In A Dream and Techno Guy cooked supper while I was napping and we enjoyed a meal of pasta and deer steak. It is really nice to feel so much at home with my friend and to all be part of the family of God. Our fellowship is sweet, our friendship enduring and our life in Christ, eternal! Woohoo! What a life.

Big Army Man 26, Lanky guy, 23, Another son, Lost-in-space,19, 16 year old son, Mr. Peabody, 15 year old son, Mr. Inquisitive, 14 year old daughter, Shineylocks, 8 year old son, Speed and 5 year old daughter, Her Highness.
