[ Father in hospital update: he's still feeling fine, and had even more visitors today with a friend from Connecticut driving down to see him and watch the Giants game. Still projecting the catheterization for Monday, and a return home Tuesday. ]
For Friday of bunny_hugger's visit we ... slept in longer than we expected. It's understandable she'd be exhausted after the rush of Christmas events and the long trip. For me, it's less so, except that I probably need more sleep than I'm getting even with my better sleep schedules of late. I can't much help that.( Collapse )
On the way back bunny_hugger noted a Windmill restaurant, a hot dog franchise which has popped up in the area without my really paying attention to it. I hadn't noticed there were so many hot dog options around.

Currently Reading: Bloom County: The Complete Library: Volume Three: 1984 - 1986, Berkeley Breathed. I had been making a joke along these lines to bunny_hugger before, but, wow, how many Bloom County strips do end with one character having a loaded gun pointed and cocked at him? Also, was there any time that wasn't really funny?
