NCIS has mentioned Cumberland several times and had one victim's mother living on in a farm here. Gibbs and McGee "came" to Cumberland as part of the investigation. Episode didn't actually show any of the town, though.

My BFF back east - one of her SILs just found out she has breast cancer. No details yet. She had found a lump under her arm so went in; had yearly mammograms. They did a biopsy and found cancer. I guess she sees more people on Monday.

So you all send some good vibes to the Fairfax, Virginia area because that's where the SIL lives.

Greetings from snowy Blacksburg. The snow started right as we drove up to the building where check-in and chair auditions were being held. So the kids auditioned and then we went for lunch. We got back to the student center and learned the university was shutting down activities after 2:30... so we have to wait until tomorrow morning for audition results and the kids won't have practice until after that.

So we're just chillaxing here in one of our hotel rooms. The kids are playing Uno, one of the other moms is reading, and I guess the other mom is either watching tv or napping in one of the other rooms.

There's probably about 3 inches of snow here.

Nope. There's a chance I could play a DVD. Remember, he got a new receiver recently and has been hooking various and assorted things to it. He just needed an update, technology has changed so much. lol Anyway, could I play a DVD? Maybe. I probably won't bother.


There's Monk on now and Mrs. Doubtfire in a few hours. Just background noise. I've got laundry going and been moving some stuff around in the kitchen cupboards.

We have a new winner in the 'flaming arse hat' category.

Because everyone dreams of working for a raging control freak who wants to twist their every word and keep them constantly on edge.

Holy cow V.

We are not sure how that's going to affect VT Honor Band. I'm waiting on notice from the band teacher about that.

Of course ODS left both Phoebe and Clari at school. Worst case scenario, he would have to take the alto clarinet or YDS's CWNN to Tech.
Oh joy.

We've had freezing rain most of the afternoon. Poor Sonny didn't get to work outdoors today, mostly because one good tug at his end of the leash and I'd be flat on the sidewalk.

Did ODS get to retrieve one of his musical friends?

Oh fun! The table sounds so pretty, Marge! Sounds like lots of cleaning but a great weekend!

Drops in her ears a few times a day and a little antibiotic.

Her ears were in rough shape. Dr said he had to drain them of fluid. The entire head of the bed was soaked. Then he put the tubes in and had to spray afrin in her ear to make the muscles contract. Apparently that burns pretty badly. She had some kind of narcotic spray up her nose and a dose of tylenol. Took a dose of motrin before bed and hasn't needed anything since.

Thanks for thinkng of her, everyone!
SO glad to hear Cinco's doing well, Bo! That sounds like rough surgery but very glad she's come through it so well and that it helped.

It must be so hard to see anyone in pain like that, but especially someone so little. Being a parent must be so hard when you know they need that help but don't want them to have to go through it. It must be a huge relief to both of you--all of you--to have that behind you.

Awwww... and how cool that DD had a visitor so shortly after her arrival!

How is DS doing with all the chilly weather up his way? They sure chose different climates...

I never used to catch that until you pointed it out! Now I always chortle when I hear them put 'the' in front of whatever Interstate. Dudes. It is NOT 'the I-66,' and it's DEFINITELY not the I-95. Lulz. Busted!!!!

The Washington Post had a photo feature today on shows that are set in DC but are shot in large measure elsewhere. NCIS made it in of course!

Funny, I was just thinking how bummed I am that there's no NCIS tonight. My usually Friday evening at Debbie's has been iced out. I'd watch a movie but while I got custody of our DVD player in the divorce, I apparently did not get custody of the remote and it has no working buttons other than 'power' and 'open/close,' so pttthhtppt on that.

I love it when they have an episode set in the Blue Ridge and you can tell all the trees and mountains are different...

...in tonight's episode, the part of 'Fairfax County' will be played by Los Angeles.

Also I will make sure no one from NCIS sends thoughts as they will wind up in Los Angeles or CA mountains by mistake.

Glad to hear you all arrived safely although I imagine chillaxing was not exactly the point of the trip. Sigh.

They did shoot one episode at the Embassy Suites hotel in .. Either Arlington or Alexandria, not sure exactly which but our family stayed there once when DH was working up there for a few days.

Internet connection here is sporadic.

I <3 these kids, though. This afternoon they decided to compose a song to play together. It was pretty awesome.

They decided to call it the first movement of "The Hotel Suite".
