1. Ed came by for a quick visit and astonished Mom with the fact that the USPS leases out post office space from private building owners.
2. After a brief tour of the Silver Valley looking for Idaho tax forms for Mom, I settled in at Mom's kitchen table and slowly and methodically computed her taxes. I got them done. I did them right. H & R Block, however, did not call with a job offer.
3. With the taxes calculated and finished, Mom, the Deke, and I sat down to a comforting oyster stew dinner with crackers and cheddar cheese and then hustled over to Carol and Paul's for a Harry Potter Citrus Sandwich Cake for dessert. More laughs!
