Little Lucy

This is the news today, fitting in with my theme from yesterday. A new human ancestor fossil found. Now, I don't know how they can find fossils 3+million years old when, according to a large portion of the population of Kansas, the earth is only 6,000 years old, but I still find this interesting.

I haven't had a chance to read and make any sense out of it yet. Our household is currently passing around a late summer cold/flu, and my head is pounding so hard that I'm having trouble even walking straight. I feel hungover, without the benefit of having enjoyed the drunken reveling that usually preceds a hangover.

I was looking at the pictures of her in our local newspaper, and Guthrie came up, curious. I tried to explain it to him, but he just asked, "Is it sharp?" and then closed that section of the newspaper, telling me it was scary. Okay, no little budding paleontologist there.

I glanced at that article too. Interesting.

Also have some kind of crud. I think we caught from Amanda.(She blogged about being sick too.)

Damn her and her germy gauchos spreading colds and flu around the blogosphere. :)

Computer virus? :P

I must confess to having briefly owned gauchos. My class reunion was this summer, and I was just 6 weeks postpartum, so couldn't wear my old clothes. The only thing I could find that was flattering, not too expensive, appropriate for the weather, etc., was a top and a pair of brown gauchos. I only wore them once, then donated to charity. Kept the top, though - it's still cute.
