1. Mom and Carol and Christy and Molly and I had breakfast at the Silver Spoon in Kellogg and had a nice chat, as we left, with the regular morning coffee guys, many of whom I go back forty or fifty years with.
2. It costs more but is so worth it to fly to Eugene instead of Portland and to park in long-term parking. I arrived in Eugene, walked out of the airport, drove my car home, and it was easy and put no strain on anyone.
3. Patrick fixed smothered pork chops for dinner and they were superb.
