Thursday, February 28, 2013      0 comments

Back on the routine! I. A. 'Millennium': "Covenant" ... set in Utah with a family that was likely Mormon but not listed as such. It was a very 'Law & Order' sort of episode, and slow and methodical. Ms. S., smart as she is, called it e... Read more

Recap, packing, computing -- in that order. I. The bowling ... 142, 130, 103, 143. All far below my old average, but since I hadn't been to the lanes in nearly a year, I can't complain that much. The three of us split the first th... Read more

Saturday, February 23, 2013      0 comments

Dinner at Palenque in Kamiah ... blackberry margerita to get things going. The daily special was pollo fundido and I didn't want something too large, too heavy. It was reasonably sized and delicious in a trashy sort of way ... the cheese sl... Read more

Friday, February 22, 2013      0 comments

Maybe we'll stop and make a snowman. It's weird being in a different time zone (again) or a little while. It's only an hour, so not a huge adjustment, but it's ... just enough. On the one hand 6am here is 7am 'for me', and so I alread... Read more
