The idea that one, when in law school, can take a "study trip" may have been based on a foundation of sand. Mary won two really nice tickets to the Ohio State versus Texas game to be played on Saturday, October 10. We had scheduled a camping trip but then, as is always the case, work made Mary unavailable on Friday. So be it. I camp with my true friends. Mary and Megan are to arrive Saturday only to leave for the night game. They will return late to spend the night. I provide a hotel.
Back to studying. I'm getting it done but there is so much to do. The dogs insist that the opportunities exist not in promissory estoppel but in promised walks. Fritz has been quite ill. She aches and often cries with what appears to be very bad joint pain. The Prednisone seems to be helping. Always the trooper, she's ready for a walk at any time, for most any distance.
Well, reliance has given way to restitution. Back to what I came to do.
The now cool nights enticed me into opening the windows. Bad choice. Proving again that hounds are stupid, the one up the street began barking at about 7 a.m. and continued until the owners finally corralled it at about 8 a.m. The owners of the hounds were hounds themselves. As I was up until 4 a.m. studying, perhaps tonight I will do likewise only with walks interspersed every half hour or so.
Mom, Megan, and RTR joined us. We took a walk, had a nice cookout, and then they left for the Ohio State football game.
Leaving at about 5:30 p.m. they
didn't return until about 2:30 a.m. Although we lost,
it was reported the game was really good. I worked on contracts,
torts, and legal writing. Woo hoo!
I did have a visitor. A small yellow bee-like bug that seems to
have fallen in love with my yellow highlighter. This bug would fly
suspended next to it mimicking any motion I might make. It sure
seemed taken by the highlighter!
Here it is late morning and the two of them are still far from recovering from their foray into buckeye mania. Eventually, they dragged themselves out of bed. We took a nice walk and had a relaxed trip home. Everything worked great. The traffic was light. The whole weekend was sunny. What more could we ask for?
