Blogging our recent US trip day by day, a month after the event.

5th December – Naked and Afraid

Skulls ahoy!Off to a small craft fair in Oacoma, which turned out to be a lot like an English one save for the occasional jewelled animal skull for sale. There we ate Indian Tacos for lunch, and I bought a very pretty “Chamberlain” hip flask for use during chilly half-times at Gigg Lane.

Janine’s family visited for a splendid evening of fun and food, some of which – cheese scones and ginger biscuits – Mary and I made. TwinsThere was a ‘buffalo cheese dip’ that was the finest* buffalo cheese dip I have ever had. I had a lovely conversation with Janine’s Mom, and was ‘adopted’ by five-year-old twins Ella and Rayne, and had a lot of fun playing daft games with them. I learned to tell them apart that evening, but looking at the photos now I have NO idea.

Naked and Afraid and BlurryAfter the fun was over Janine, Mary and I watched Naked and Afraid – “One man, one woman, 21 days with no food, water, shelter, or clothes.” Also a film crew, severe editing, and extremely blurry genitals. Interesting programme, though, watching people challenged by nature and having the bejasus knocked out of them by tiny flies and such.

    hahahaha…I watched Naked and Afraid several times. It is actually sort of addicting. It amazes me the things people will do for money. Your trip to Janine’s sounds so “homey”. You got to meet her family and how neat is that?
