I’ve rejoined the world! We have phone service again, but alas, no dsl. I woke up in the middle of the night with a migraine, which sucked. My migraine medicine also has the unpleasant side effect of making me feel like I have a full body bruise. It sucks, but it’s better than a migraine, I guess.
Charlie made a new friend Kira today and wore himself out playing with her. She’s about half his size, but was kicking his butt until Charlie came upon the brilliant tactical idea of simply sitting on her. He came home and collapsed on the kitchen floor. Charlie and the bunnies have reached a cease fire agreement. Okay, the problem was all mainly on the part of Franklin, who has decided he must kill Charlie. Grumpy seems cool with the new family addition.
I’m still working on the geneology stuff and will put it on my webpage at some later date. I seem to be descended from royalty, including Charlemagne and William the Conqueror, among others.
There will be new federal elections in Germany in the fall (one year early), and it looks as if Schroeder is going to lose. I don’t really know what difference that will make.
