sisters, sisters ball

Drive Up the Columbia River Gorge!

I'm writing this from Spooky's in The Dalles, Oregon, which has WiFi, I'm happy to say. I'm sipping a Bud Light as I type. (grin)

Sister Sue suzy_qp, Marilyn mistressmarilyn and I left the house around noon-ish to head for a long SUNNY ride. (The sun was a must-do -- which is why we're not down at the beach, by the way...)

We went to the Maryhill Museum -- but not to tour (we are members, though). We went to feed the peacocks! And for the first time ever we saw BABIES!!! I have photos to share, but that will have to wait until I've downloaded them.

I think I'll try picking up my home email (via Qwest) while I'm here. It's so weird to be offline. (yikes)

We've ordered a couple of pizzas -- that should go well with the McDonalds ice cream cones we had earlier. (grin) Soft vanilla in little cones. Marilyn bought one and was eating it and suddenly EVERYBODY was ordering them! (grin)

Well, time to eat!

voracious reader

Finished Reading "The Lost Symbol" Yesterday.

I'm happy to report that I finished reading Dan Brown's "The Lost Symbol" yesterday. (Now I'm loaning it to Paul. Then Marilyn mistressmarilyn wants to read it and after her Sue suzy_qp...)

I really enjoyed it and loved the end! Because it's set in Washington D.C. -- which I adore -- I found it really fascinating.

It did drag just a little at one point (right before the end), but that's no big deal. The end totally made up for it!

I think the book is uplifting, by the way -- so if you've been feeling depressed, this is a marvelous read that will make you feel better.

And, as always, I'm on to the next book!
