Survival, Field Trip

I survived the week. Had an an appointment on Wednesday that I had forgotten about, but my Monday appointment made my Friday appointment unnecessary, so I keep the vet one and canceled that one. Friday, Joe and I ended up walking to the vet to pick up fluids for the cat. Dave was going to do it, but decided at he last minute that he couldn't make it(surprise) so Joe and I went. But, backing out of the driveway, the Contour brakes sounded so bad I decided not to drive it, so we walked. Well, I walked, but Joe rode his scooter. It was a nice outing for him, and I would have enjoyed it more if I hadn't been so tired.

The field trip Thursday was fun. We went to La Petit Trianon in San Jose. It's a hall set up for chamber music. We saw five musicians playing brass, with one percussionist. They played each instrument separately so we could hear the sound, and then played pieces ranging from Bach to Swing.
Whe we were getting ready to go from the parking garage to the theater, the kids were playing and I notice Jeremy appeared to be eating dental floss. I asked him what he was doing and he said floss was good. Are you eating it? No, he wasn't, he said, but Jospeh swallowed his. Not knowing the extent of my authority, I told the teacher what was going on and she confiscated two packs of floss.

Yesterday, Joe's Cub Scout Den went to the Haunted Miaze at Ardenwood Farms. It's a huge maze in a corn field. We did it in the dark. There were employees dressed in scary costumes who would surprise you as you walked through. http://www.hauntedbay.com/reviews/ardenwoodmaize2004.shtml

Neither of my auctions on eBay got any bids this time. I relisted the window stars. I'll relist the stuffed stars tonight.
