Aggggghhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's the sound of thousands of fans' hearts breaking - and one hand. Yesterday some &*$(#*& rookie pitcher broke the finger of my beloved Chutley, who was on his way to an MVP season and along with Howard was going to drag that ding-dang flawed team to the post-season. But he's out for a month now at least and I fear that won't happen now....

Oof - I am so distressed.

Anyway, back to our regularly scheduled posting. More fun in Boston:

A boy who is such a good sport for tagging along to yarn stores with his mom deserves a treat. A treat like......Cathy!!! Yes, mighty Cathy lives just outside Boston and picked us up at the hotel, and we spent a warm and wonderful afternoon at her lovely home with her lovely self and her lovely boys (4 out of 5!). Because she is the Hostess with the Mostest and a Certified Boy Expert, Cathy knows one of the sure-fire ways to a 7-yr-old's heart: Ice cream.

But not just any ice cream! Check out what she had bought for him. Breyers BUBBLE YUM and Breyers REESE CUP ice cream! Yowsah! I was intrigued by the Bubble Yum flavor, as was Gus:

It was.....interesting. The bits of bubble gum inside the ice cream didn't really maintain their gum-like integrity, but it was ice cream. Nuff said. Gus is in swim trunks because he had just spent an hour splashing around in the pool with Cathy's three youngest boys, who were a little older than Gus and thus cooler-than-cool. The boys spent the rest of the afternoon lounging in front of the television and discussing the finer points of Pokemon, so that was pretty much Gus's definition of heaven: Cathy, a pool, hanging with cool older boys, bubble gum ice cream, television, Pokemon, and, after all, Cathy.

I'm so jealous! I'm glad you and Gus had such a great time -- Cathy is a treasure! (Although I almost didn't recognize her...)

...with the bare shoulders and all.

BRING THE BOY BACK! He is the best. The "angels" (or very loud boys) thought he was pretty cool too. My little duckling attorneys LOVED HIM!I show them his pictures all the time (compliments of a favorite aunt) but they loved seeing him in the flesh.

You should write travel your spare time....when you aren't working on becoming the MOST FAMOUS PATTERN MAKER EVER!
