1. No hurry. Take our time. Talk to the neighbors. Chase Maggie after she escapted. Bring her back to the car. Let adrenaline settle down. The Deke, the dogs, and I are ready to drive to Kellogg.
2. Spectacular sky and cloud variety between The Dalles and Ritzville: clear in one direction, fingers of dark rain clouds in another, puffy cotton clouds in yet another. The stunning skyscapes made it difficult to concentrate on driving.
3. Remember that prime rib I roasted back on Sunday, January 20th in Kellogg for Mom's birthday? (Ha!) Well, Mom turned those bones into broth and make a tasty beef and vegetable soup, a perfect dinner after the long drive.
