08:31 pm - What in the World?
Ely was visiting this weekend. He mysteriously disappeared for a while after asking me where the flashlight was. I was talking with Maya in my bedroom, and in he walks
"What in the world??" I asked him, "What happened?" He said he had been crawling on his belly through the attic over our studio looking for some lost movies of our family. We've all been grieving the loss of these movies for years. We were fairly sure that they had accidently been taken to the dump, but Ely wanted to check out the very back of the attic, just in case. It was so incredibly hot and dusty and dirty up there that when he finally got out of there he looked like "Pig Pen" from the Peanuts cartoons! I had a flashback of him and Nathen as kids running into our farmhouse in Indiana completely covered in dark, sticky mud from the cornfield. You couldn't even tell if they had clothes on (I think they were just in their underwear) the mud was so thick! Well, Ely wasn't that bad, but he was a sight to see, so I grabbed the camera. Thanks, Ely for trying! (No, he didn't find the movies.)
