I love forget me nots, fluffernutters, sugar pops

Tomorrow we're leaving for Yellowstone, but you need to not steal stuff from us while we're gone. First of all, we don't have anything nice; second, even if we did have nice stuff we've hidden it where you'll never find it (and no, it's not in that pot right there); third, stealing is wrong.

Yellowstone is a magical place. It's incredible to see so many natural wonders in such a small area. Boiling mud? Smelly geysers? Pools of scorching hot mineral water that will melt the flesh off your bones? Bears chasing bison? Yes, please! I'm normally a very "hands off, government!" kind of girl, but I enthusiastically endorse our national parks. If Ulysses hadn't grabbed Yellowstone you know some Rockefeller or Carnegie would have snatched it up and strip-mined it and we'd never have seen it. Jerks.

Remember the Bog of Eternal Stench in Labyrinth? That was cool. David Bowie's leggings make me feel uncomfortable, though. He looks like he stuffs.

I'm with you. Yellowstone is awesome, except we Montanans (at least the Bozeman variety) call it simply, "The Park." Have a great time and if your cool boots and trampy-yet-vogue tights aren't in the pot when you get home, I had nothing to do with it.

Have a great time.

Ugh, those leggings. (But then I believe that leggings are the bane of most humans and forget about it with Mr. Bowie and T-shirts. Eww..)

Hope to see some pics when you get back.
