It was fun, and we closed down Carl's Jr. Not literally, because Carl's Jr. closes around 9 and we left before 5. I say it that way so you see that we had fun and laughed, even though it took Ms. Swank three vacuum carafes of coffee to get one full cup. It's possible it was just a troublemaking scheme, but that's between her and Isobella behind the counter.
[Did you know there's a laundromat in town where you can also take a shower and have your clothes folded for $1.50/pound/ $8.00 minimum (and is there a folding set-up charge? Is it just not economical to fold fewer than 5.333 pounds of laundry?) and sit in the diner (except for today, when the diner closed down just as we got there)? This is to explain why we re-met at Carl's.]
|You may notice that Liz and SW both have purple lanyards. This was not intentional, nor did they phone each other this morning.|
- strong wifi, even from the parking lot
- real milkshakes
- not-bad coffee
- not mobbed like McDonald's
- no outside garbage cans
SW gave me a new expression: Keep your dipper out of my bucket. I feel certain she wasn't talking to me personally, but I did keep an eye on my dipper thereafter, so I know it's effective.
When Darlene & Nicole were still around, we watched a trio of military helicopters roar over our remote location. SW and Liz were in the same area at the same time, although none of us knew it. Seems we would have noticed their vans in such a lonely spot, but no. I told you they were stealthers.
They showed us a great place for 'docking which offers both solitude and solid 3G connectivity. YEEE!
We also met Liz's two cutie dogs, Lou and Poopsie (I am SO SORRY, Liz; I can't remember Poopsie's name! I thought I had pictures of his adorable fatness, but I didn't).
|A picture of my foot. I offer Lou for scale.|
So good to meet you both! I know our roads will cross again.
