Thanks once again to our host Larry D. at Acts of the Apostasy, who is nothing if not good for Death Star-themed humor.
SuperHusband took the relatively healthy contingent to the family reunion [Bethune Homesteaders spared infection — castle residents went straight to our ancestral family’s farm, Curley family kept safe] and I stayed home with the weekend’s victims.

PS: Link day. Help yourself if you are so inclined. Though I can’t imagine there’s anything on the internet to top Barbecue-Zombie-Stormtrooper Day. Post as many as you want, but only one per comment or the spam dragon will eat you up and I’ll never even know.
