I won't be able to write much today. Everyone is up and the t.v. is on. My head is snotty and I can barely think. They ask me a question every few keystrokes. The weather is shitty, cloudy and cold, and so they've decided to head back home today. I guess I am, too.
Bummer all around.
The good news is that I got out of the house, and I will again. I went out yesterday with camera, but the light was not good at all. The shots will be dull and flat. Selavy.
Aieeeee! They narrate every move they make!
"Well, shit. . . I was gonna sit down and now I can't find my glasses."
I went to an island I'd never been to before. I parked at the far end of the island next to a long pier built in the early 20th century to allow steamships full of potential buyers to come and look at the real estate. Across the street was an understated restaurant. I hadn't eaten and wanted to get a fish sandwich and a beer. There was about a ten minute wait, so I put my name on the list to get a $25 sandwich and a $10 beer. Man, I thought, those must be good. A couple came in behind me and asked if there was a bar where they could wait. There was, and I followed them in. Oh, my, it was the best bar I've ever seen, small and beautiful. But everyone had apparently just had a seat and had not yet received the food they ordered, I guessed, because they had napkins spread on the bar before them. God, I wanted to eat at that bar. I wanted to take a woman to the bar to show off. But my table was ready. I declined. After seeing that bar, I was not going to sit at a table alone.
I'll go back.
But now, I need to pack. Not much of a trip, but it was something. I'll tell you about it sometime.
