A Hasty Departure

Our plans have changed ever so slightly. A storm is coming in in Sunday which could potentially make it difficult to land our plane. Because we're on a charter flight, we have the luxury of bumping it forward 18 hours or so, The current plan is to depart our location at about 3:30 p.m. tomorrow and to land in the State of the Desolate a couple of hours later.  My croup isn't quite at the stage that my doctor had hoped it would have been but he says I can make the trip. He's not really concerned that I'll  share the illness with my pseudoaunt, as croup isn't highly contagious, particularly when it is medicated with both antibiotics and antivirals to covers as many bases as is practical.

We will be hanging out not far from the Cedar Hills area, which is the same neck of the woods where Donny Osmond's son was caught illegally discharging firearms.  This is actually old news, and only recently received press coverage, maybe as an afterthought following the Connecticut tragedy. Still, Jeremy Osmond's less-than-photogenic mug shot has been plastered over tabloid covers and on front pages of Utah newspapers.   Perhaps we will have someone other than Daniel Kretchmer, the legendary  serial polygamist kidnapper from  Pleasant Grove, about whom to be concerned.  While it's true that the legendary  Krtechmer usually makes his raid down from the hills in the immediate hours surrounding February 14, with the young Mr. Osmond purportedly encroaching upon his territory, Daniel Kretchmer  may choose to hasten his escapades, as he surely wants the brightest and best of what's out there to add to his harem,  and not merely his pick of the litter among the survivors of Jeremy Osmond's most recent target practice.

I'll let you know how it goes.


  1. I was sad to see how Jeremy Osmond looks these days. I recently saw a video of him with Donny and Debbie from back in 1981. He was cute as a kid.

  2. I hope you're enjoying your vacation. I did get your e-mail and I replied, though for whatever reason, I have the nagging feeling that it ended up in your spam again. I do not know why this is happening and I might contact Google about it, or whoever, because I use that e-mail to contact Dr. Boyle, who happens not to be very good at e-mail communication, and I'm beginning to think that it's more me than it is him. The banes of the interweb, I suppose. But, I just wanted to let you know that I did respond, if it did not end up in your general inbox folder.

    I hope that you're busy having a lot of fun in Utah and that's the reason, but I wanted to let you know, in case that it's the e-mail again.

    Hope you're good.
