We made it alive and well to NY, the drive wasn't all that bad. For Shabbat we are staying with some close friends, who have twin girls a few months younger than Jonah.

Upstairs from these twins, lives their first cousin, I don’t know how old he. But he is the "villain" in this story. Early this morning we took Jonah over top play with these twins and he enjoyed their toys as any youngster would.

Little did he know of the danger lurking among those toys? See unknown to us, (and apparently the mother of the twins) the first cousin upstairs has hoof and mouth disease. And he also enjoys playing with, and licking the toys of his cousins.

Now he has exposed Jonah to this dreaded disease. (And the girls, but that really isn’t my concern) Seems like we won't know whether he actually caught this mad cow disease, for a week, when we should hopefully be back home. If he got all sick, it would really ruin our little vacation here.
