New companion

Here’s LRN1’s new companion.  See circumstances and description below.  That’s LRN1 there on the right.  Part of my famous Guatemala series.

No posts for a week.  Such a long time!  Fortunately, nothing has happened.

Well, that’s not entirely true.  LRN4 and I had a bit of entertainment this weekend.  It started Friday night, as these things often do.  We went to Modesto to see Madame Butterfly.  Turns out it wasn’t a comedy.  I think it was the best thing I’ve seen done by the Townsend Opera Company, though.  Not that that’s necessarily saying much – they have put on a few stinkers over the years (we saw Romeo and Juliet there in January of this year – everything was good except the actors/singers who portrayed Romeo and Juliet, which seems like the one thing they should have gotten right.  Just saying.)  Not the best attendance, and the prices were quite reasonable.  So that’s a bit of a shame.  But we had a very nice time and enjoyed it quite a bit.

On Saturday night, we went to Danville to see our non-loyal-reader friend Clifford’s band perform.  They were excellent!  They played in a Lutheran church there, which was a unique experience for us, but how nice of them to provide facilities for things like this!

Anyway.  Nothing much else to report.  LRN1 wrote on Saturday, taking us a bit by surprise, since his p-day has been Monday, like most missionaries.  However, he’s been transferred back into the office.  And the office denizens have their p-day on Saturday.  I guess he’s just too good at doing the finances for his own good.  I hope he enjoys his second tour there.  He reports that he has a really great companion, which is an excellent start!  Have a great time in the office, LRN1!  As if you were reading this!

Got the Suburban detailed today.  When they replaced the vandalized window, they vacuumed, but there were still millions of tiny glass shards everywhere.  So the insurance company told me to get it detailed at their expense.  It cost more than three times what they initially told me to spend, so we’ll see how much they end up paying.  I just sent them the receipt and told them to pay whatever they feel good about.  In any case, the car looks great!  I want to get it done to all my cars every year!  Or maybe every month!  Sadly, that would be a bit unaffordable, so maybe I should just hope for one car a year.  Next year: the Honda.  The ‘Burb goes into the shop here in Lardville at the beginning of next week to have its mirror switch replaced, thereby finishing the repairs from the Vandalism Incident.  Weep with me, Loyal Readers.

Anyway again.  It’s 9:00 and I need to start getting up earlier.  Therefore, I need to start going to bed earlier.  Therefore, I need to end this and go to bed.  I’ll leave my Loyal Readers with this shocking food violence news:  grape assault!

See you tomorrow.

    I was trying to figure out how a grape thrown at a face constituted a jailable offense…
