Lessons on being sick

I learned two things when I was sick with the flu last week:

1.  Buy a new mattress before you get sick and have to spend a week in bed.

2.  Sometimes you crave weird stuff to eat when you've been sick.  If that happens to be cinnamon graham crackers, and the only ones you have are stale, there's an easy fix.  Put a cracker, one at a time, in a toaster oven for about 30 seconds.  Then eat it just as soon as it comes out.  They are hot and soft as though they just came out of the oven.  When they do cool, they're not as good, but still better than when stale.

I ain't afraid uh no snake...

It was amazing to go out in early March with clear skies and no wind. What a bummer for all the kite festival folks who got up early to beat the crowds parking. For the lucky ones like us, the winds did pick up enough around lunch time for a few hundred kites to get up.

Of course, the 'people watching' is the most interesting part of an event like this, and thank goodness for pictures.  I didn't even notice the expression on the ladies' faces in the background of this shot until now:

There was a lady with a pet pig there as well, but we elected for some good shots with the Austin skyline and kites instead.

...and a nice lady took a picture of all of us.  Emma and Clayton are much better photo subject than me, but one of these days I'll get the "junk-yard-owner" look down.
