next stop: Bozeman

We are off tomorrow for a week's visit with Cait and Mike (and Ike) in Bozeman. We were going to fly but, as everyone knows by now, flights are v-e-r-y tight, and since we fly stand-by, it didn't look promising. We will drive instead, leaving early in the morning and going as far as Pocatello, ID before calling it a day. On to Bozeman on Thursday, arriving around noon. We try to go every year to celebrate the Patient's birthday out there in the wild west. It's always a beautiful trip, with great hikes, a visit to the Museum of the Rockies, an out-to-dinner or two, and just catching up. Cait has ordered season one of "The Office" for a hilarity break. I'll take along the Maclap and the camera to keep you up on all the doings. I'll also take my trusty reading machine for the drive. I'm now listening to Salman Rushdie's "Shame". I'll take a new John Harvey paperback, loaned by fellow Harvey fan Babz, in case I get bored being a passive "reader".

If you visit this site with any regularity, you know that the Patient's favorite occupation before going on a trip is to vacuum. He's at it right now, and we aren't even leaving until tomorrow. He usually waits until 20 minutes before take-off.

Tonight's the All Star game. Go Nats.
