Random Pictures and Jetticisms

For reasons unknown to all three of us, Jet has picked up an Outrageously bad British Accent. He's clipping his words and turning them and he's doing it without even being entirely aware of it until we start giggling.

I'll blame the Monty Python Fluxx and the fact that we played it with three different groups during our trip and whenever the "Outrageous Accent" card came up folks would enthusiastically bound into doing really, really bad accents. *laughs* But even Jet says he has no idea why he's doing it.

Should Be Done

The Boulder firefighters only lost two structures, no homes, but 11,000 had recommended evacuation notices, and about 1400 acres of mostly grasslands burned. All to the south of us and it stayed south as the winds were going southwest.

There isn't any smoke in the air today, and they're hoping to have it all out tonight. The winds died down this morning, and picked up again this afternoon, but the resulting small fires were quickly contained. Folks are going back home. A lot of stock was taken to the Boulder County Fairground for the evacuation, luckily they have the stalls and everything for cattle and horses and sheep. *grins*

So we're good and safe. *hugs folks for worrying* Thanks!
