SO and I, a lifetime friend of mine, and Bingo are headed to the farm this afternoon. Monday is a holiday, so it will be a long week-end. Ferb seems to be better at the moment and has completed college applications. He is back at school and work. My step-sister is in charge of the teens for the week-end. Tomorrow night we are going wassailing. For the uninitiated, wassail is fermented apple cider. Wassailing is when you go to the orchard and perform chants to dispel the evil spirits. There is a fabulous cidery in the town near the farm, and they are sponsoring this peculiar event. We had a terrible snowstorm last week-end, but it has warmed back up and now everything is muddy. I expect there to be some mouse carcasses in the farmhouse. We have an influx of the tiny critters, and I put out a lot of poison before we left last time. I hope my friend isn't scared of mice. What are your week-end plans?
