Hey Tater,
I don't know if this is an issue or not, but apparently both Davcarv and LarryC think they have reserved site number 56...

They both might want to go check their reservations and make sure they've reserved the dates they think they have.


-Red, working towards conflict resolution...

The teenage brain is still bubbling with development more or less I am told by my friend who is a phD neuroscientist...apparently for women they get smarter quicker and their pre-frontal cortex (or some such) is fully developed by like age 23 or 24...men are more like 25.

I have a number of teenage family now...some neices and nephews and such in my family that I get to converse with.

It is interesting. Often they lack perspective as protaganist eluded to. More often they are much more interested in assimilation with their peers, however they often question authority and are highly confident of their assertions despite at times being unable to support them with much of an explanation or with any sort of evidence.

I had a discussion with my 12 year old neice a couple months ago...she kept using the term "literally" over and over and over in a way inconsistent with the defintion of the term (as I understood it at that time). I asked her why she kept saying "literally"...then asked her to define the term...she could not...then we discussed the definition. Then she argued that its ok to use the term in this way because thats what everyone does...then I invited her to think more critically about the logic of such a statement....etc....eventually I think she was just annoyed, lol

Interestingly, 1 week later, I was writing a facebook post about the use of the term "literally" and in doing so I went to pull the dictionary definition....it seems that in summer 2014, merriam and oxford added an informal new defintion for the term making it as a general "intensifier" and as such can make it's use informally correct such as:

"I am so angry my head is literally going to explode!"....let that simmer for a while, lol.

Anyway...point is...I think I will annoy the hell out of the minds of my future teens...

(PS, I am by far not a highly qualified grammar nazi, but do try and listen to those annoying people to learn )

So, literally, we can't take the definition of "literally" literally...

-Red, who literally just can't even...

Makes sense. That's about how long it takes males to learn to think with neurons rather than hormones…

I know a few males in their fifties who still think with their hormones...

-Red, neuron driven, and proud of it...

My husband and I will have a 15 year old along with us. The angst hasn't reared it's ugly head YET, but we all know it's coming. She is quite the entrepreneur though and mentioned that she'd love to skim a few $ off of you with smaller children who would want a little elbow room during the rally. Typically, we just call that babysitting.

We will have five teens and a couple of preteens with us, also some great babysitters for extra cash.

Heck, for extra cash, I'll lay off the bourbon infused peach glazed brownie cobbler for a few hours and babysit kids myself...

Ok, I lied, I'm not that interested in the extra cash... BRING ON THE BROWNIE COBBLER STUFF!!!

-Red, becoming confused on exactly what it is we'll be eating...

And, if your kids will take money to watch a Boston Terrier with tremendous flatulence issues, we might be able to work up a deal.

-Red, not kidding about the dog gas...

We didn't anticipate many older kids in attendance so knowing there will be some is great news.

She is the sweetest, most personable, awesomest dog in the world, but she literally (and I'm using that word correctly) can clear a room...

We don't bring her camping very often. You think it's bad in a house? Wait until you're locked in the camper for the night...

-Red, happy to meet other Boston's people....

Well, I will be bringing my teenager in an 8 year old girl's body, my old man in a 4 year old Boston Terrier's body and my 15 year old boy in a 37 year old grown man's body so I'm not sure if we need a babysitter or a therapist but either way I'm looking forward to it.

Melissa - truly hopeful there is bourbon in something
