As you can tell, Jackson has taken to feeding the horses apples. I didn't realize it would come so close and accidently took a flash picture, which neither Jackson nor the horse appreciated. Everyone has gotten over it. Labor Day's a bit busier here than normal, but not much. It's fun to spend the holiday doing other things than hiding in our house from the city people or sitting in traffic. We went out to the Hamlin Diner last night, Jackson's appetitite has returned to it's former unbelievable self, it's almost like a separate - and somewhat pesty - entity. It starts hanging around the kitchen around 4 - ish to see if dinner is ready, it actually knows dinner is NOT ready but seems to feel it can nudge the time up if it makes comments. If it wants to go out, it hangs around David because it knows it's chances of getting a pizza or going out are much higher if it hangs around and pesters Dad. So we took Jackson and his Appetite out for dinner and it had a very large basket of shrimp with mashed potatoes. It would've eaten more but had eaten half a dozen Slim Jim's and some potato chips to sustain it until we could get our shoes on. Of course the most annoying thing about Jackson is even eating all that stuff he can barely manage to maintain what weight he's at now. Charger is much better though he still has yucky elbows and they're all scratching much less. I'm back to work tomorrow, I've pretty much resigned myself to the fact I'll be getting up at 4 am for the next two weeks, but I'll be home by 3pm so there is that to hang onto. This is going to be a long two weeks.
