I, too, am sad for you Munky. The warm memories you have of him will get you through the tough days.

Yes Alix! Thank you! Everything looks so spring-y and fresh. Nice deck, too.

I am recuperating from a trip to Costco. I forgot it would be crowded before the long weekend. The parking lot was a zoo. At least they had all the cashes open, so the lines weren't too long. I only got ~$200 worth of stuff, 'cause I don't want to be dragging more stuff up the stairs from the underground parking. I really, really have to make a habit of going more often for smaller loads.

Nursing a headache. Maybe I should be nursing a glass of something strong to get rid of the headache.

Is this your way of practicing Masochistic Self Punishment for something you may have done in a past life? Once I went shopping on a Friday which just happened to be the Memorial Day weekend. They had folks stand outside in the freezing rain waiting for someone to come out and get their cart as they unloaded it. Just after I got there, the whole store filled up to capacity and they had to stop letting in customers. They ran out of carriages and had all 32 cash registers open. Never, ever again. I now go at 7 am even if I have to wait a few minutes until they open the doors. A couple of times I have been the only one in the store along with Spike.

Spike and I like to watch the new immigrants shop. When they get to the register, they think they can haggle the prices like they do in their own country. Wouldn't that be fun to do when the lines are nice and long.

Okay, I'll be waiting to order my meds on Sunday to pick up on Monday, I forgot it was graduation weekend and Costco will be a real zoo. Not too excited about riding my bike over the weekend, either. The traffic is already nuts.
