Eoul the Young: I wish her and you the best.

Pontifex/Chirine: Thank you both; I'll pass that along to her.

Hathmet: 2020 can't be that evil. Something good must happen.
Jul 11, 2020 18:11:03 GMT -6
Pontifex/Chirine: Well, I think you're right. We got the tax bill, and we have enough in petty cash to cover it with no problems. And I have figures to paint, and stuff to amaze you and everyone else with.

greentongue: Was the "summoning" successful?
Jul 15, 2020 4:40:23 GMT -6
Pontifex/Chirine: I'd like to think so; it's still very early in the process, but anything would be of help, I think...

greentongue: More offerings delivered. Palms greased to keep the prayers in the schedule.
Jul 16, 2020 11:57:14 GMT -6
Pontifex/Chirine: Thank you - I'll be happy to grease a few palms. She's due in February, so there's opportunities for quite a few palms to be greased.

Pontifex/Chirine: Thank you! She's going to be here tomorrow for our anniversary event, and I'll pass along your good wishes.
Jul 24, 2020 8:52:28 GMT -6
Pontifex/Chirine: We did it! The thing went well, and the 2" of rain held off until later. Third Daughter is doing well, and thanks everyone for their good wishes. Longer report tomorrow...

Pontifex/Chirine: We'll also have photos - Indy, The Hound Of The Hathmets, stole the show as a pure-bred ham. The Missus loved it - she loves dogs - and I was left totally left behind. It made for a great show, though!
Jul 26, 2020 23:26:15 GMT -6
Hathmet: We left at the right time. The Hound of the Hathmets would have not been fun to be around during thunder. But she does feel going into basements protects her.
Jul 26, 2020 23:31:14 GMT -6
Pontifex/Chirine: Yep. Most folks left about the same time, alerted by their magic phones to the weather. We powered down the electrics, moved stuff under the tarps, and retired to the game room. Hot tea and towels were the order of the day, and we had more fun. Did you?
Jul 26, 2020 23:40:46 GMT -6
Glorious_General: Hooray! Wish the logistics had let me be there!
Jul 26, 2020 23:40:54 GMT -6
Pontifex/Chirine: Understood! We missed you both, but that drive is not for the casual commuter. It all went well, much to my amazement, despite the weather. It all pulled together, and I was very happy. So was the Missus, much to my relief!
Jul 26, 2020 23:42:54 GMT -6
Hathmet: I miss the game room. But that was probably crowded!
Jul 27, 2020 13:58:05 GMT -6
Pontifex/Chirine: No, just 7th Daughter, Mir dir Oboe, and Dr. Hannah. Towels and teas were the order of the day. Dr. Hannah was gob-smacked, viewing the House of Wonders for the first time. This seems to be a common reaction; I do wonder why, but I'm used to the place...

Pontifex/Chirine: The tent city has been struck, all the fabrics dried out, and I'm in the throes of stowing everything away. It's like having one's own legion to look after...
Jul 28, 2020 17:02:58 GMT -6
Pontifex/Chirine: My word - all stowed, with a few bits in the game room to be put away...
