Oh blllllleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeah

Yesterday I drove to far Eastern Oklahoma, did not plan well (I forget there are still places where you don't have 10 restaurants per square foot) and ended up breaking my road rule-Never buy Chicken at a Gas Station/Truck stop.

I vomited for a full 100 miles, came home, went to bed, and vomited for half the night. It was one of those mysterious illnesses where output far exceeds what went in in the first place.

I brought home a new animal, who is nameless at this point. Yesterday I called him "hyena" for all the wailing he was doing. A few minutes ago he started again and Oliver screamed "AWK MURDER!!!!" which made me laugh till I cried.

Today liquids are staying down so I am calling me on the mend.

Oh poor you. No fun to be that sick from food poison. Take care. What kind of animal?

I think we'll wait till Wednesday for the unveiling. He is both common and uncommon. Obviously not a snake because he's noisey (although my burms are hissy babies-I call them my little hissy pissies).

I probably won't break the no chicken at gas stations rule ever again. To get that sick that fast mean that had to be some pretty potent germies.

icky chicky

shall we begin guessing what the new critter is who howls like a hyena and hails form Eastern OK?

a skunk?

Yuck-of the worst kind. That chicken must have been germy, but nice to know your immune system kicked in.

Hmmm....perhaps an owl? Hurt and found by the side of the road and needing help but thinking that you are going to eat him?

Or perhaps a new puppy, lonely for it's mom?

or a baby bobcat? too young to be on it's own? but wailing?

Oliver sounds like he has it right, good giggle there.

Looking forward to animal Wednesday to see the new member!

eeeewwww, on the chicken thing. I know what you mean by more comes out than went in. That IS a phenomenon! Glad it's out of your system.

Hyena? Hmmmmm.

a kit of homeopathic remedies on any trip can be of great help...

thank God you throw it up... your strong body could fight the germs...

me too very curious to know about the new amimal...
