The various and sundry children have returned to their respective parents. forestcats is returning from northern California, stopping at a quilt store or two en route to make the day. corveys is moping. brushette is feeling OK, but misses the lady of the house. I watched Hyde Park on Hudson last night off Netflix disc (thought it was going to be historical, about the visit of the Royal Couple of the United Kingdom with FDR, but discovered that it was really a romance/adultery/secret history of FDR's philandering. Damn marketers!)...not my cup of tea. Tried to stream Hugo this morning, but I didn't care much for it; clearly, it's supposed to be a breathtaking 3D experience, and on a 2D TV screen, it's underwhelming.
