Well, we're home from vacation. And from the moods around here, we're not very happy about it. But I found my camera cord, Oscar is asleep in the Moby and the rest of them are at Home Depot so I'm going to relive vacation by posting photos of Bodie, California: very cool ghost town.
What, you didn't want to be bored by my vacation photos? That's the wonders of the internet, folks. You can skip right down to the next post in your blog reader. Or, if you want vacation updates from a much funnier/wittier blogger, check out Julia's updates this week. Unless you're my mom or dad in which case, here you go:

The electrical system was pretty amazing. See the insulator up there?
The stuff inside the homes and businesses was really interesting.
