We're back from the expedition to rural Boyertown, PA, and not a moment to soon for Yuri. The place was quaint-ish, with an old main street, moderately historic architecture and a bunch of new McMansions taking over former fields. Yuri's family were all happy to see him and treated us very nicely, but the weight of oppressive memories got too much and I saw Yuri really sinking on the last day. Add to this the snow blowing on the wind without sticking to the ground, the trip to Zern's market where we saw an auction room full of genuine toothless hicks, plus stall after stall of crap to be bought by hopeful patrons, then sold at exactly the same place a few years later. Recycled detritus, the only new things being available the same strip mall stores seen all over the country. I'll be happy not to return, and Yuri is relieved for the same reason.|

Poor yuriverse has been a very sick boy - food poisoning or stomach flu or some such hit him last night and laid him out for today and probably tomorrow.
More woes - we still need a home for Weensie and Dax for the next six months. So far, no leads have been useful, either due to not being able to keep them indoors or not being able to keep them for the whole time. Fingers and toes are crossed. If you can look after one or both of them (inside only), please let me know!
