Bug Glasses

I just got back from my trip where Mum and I were moving nonstop the entire time. I was able to see a bunch of my relatives and visit some of my favorite stores. While Mum and I were at Picos, I spotted these silly bug glasses. I slipped them on and tapped Mum on the shoulder. She spent the next 5-10 minutes laughing. Other customers also laughed as she tried to stifle herself. (A few days later she expressed interest in ordering coffee while wearing the glasses. I expressed the same amount of interest in pretending not to know her if she did that.)

On the knitting front, did I:
A) Finish the vest
B) Knit up to the arm holes
C) Knit 5 rows
If you guessed C, you would be correct. The only time I had to knit was when I was waiting for my turn in the bathroom. I spent all the car rides enjoying the view.

We were so busy the entire trip that I only took five pictures... at a cemetery. Mum and I visited the Oddfellows/ Masonic cemetery in Grants Pass that we have passed by on the freeway many times. For years I have wanted to visit. I found this pair of markers rather interesting. It was in a family plot. These two individuals died a week apart. I was curious if there was some sort of illness going around at the time.

Over all it was a good trip. I did, however, spend the car ride home with a sore jaw. It's been two weeks since I've had my wisdom teeth removed and I have moved backwards in regards to recovery. The sore jaw during the car ride got swollen by the end. It was like the Godfather Part 2 and the right side of my face was playing the part of Brando. It wasn't any better this morning, so I made a quick appointment and had it looked at. I'll spare you all the gory details, but I am on antibiotics again and have this rather bitter tasting dressing in my mouth. (Turns out I am one of the lucky 10%-15% that this secondary infection happens to. Lucky me.) Even though I would rather be completely healed by now, I'm just happy that this happened at the very end of our trip, I was able to get an appointment today, and that I have a few days to recover before going back to work. Thank goodness for modern medicine.

I asked the 16 yr old if he'd like some bug glasses too. From the way he walked away from the monitor, I'd guess the answer is 'no'. I think I'm on your mum's side - they're very cool. :D

I'm glad you enjoyed your trip, and even gladder you have medicine for that worrisome jaw. Heal well!!

Oh no! I wouldn't quite say your are lucky but I suppose that is a positive way of looking at it. I'm sure that you weren't feeling your best during the trip, and I know that I prefer to watch the scenery in that case. You're wrists probably needed a little rest too. And those bug glasses are genius!

Love the bug glasses Audrey and it sounds like you had a wonderful trip! The cemetery pictures are cool! I sure hate to hear about your infection though! I will be praying for a speedy recovery for you Sweet Girl! Take care of yourself.

P.S. You got about as much knitting done as I usually do on a trip!

I love the bug glasses, so funny! And I'm sorry to hear about your infection, but it sounds like you caught it early, which is always good.

Oh, so sorry about your mouth problems! I was also one of the "lucky" ones and ended up with all sorts of fun complications :/ Nice glasses, though :P

Now don't get me stated on the bug glasses. I would wear them everywhere! Grocery shopping, to work, driving in traffic. Love them!
