1. Christy, Carol, and I piled into Mom's Malibu and headed east to the wilds of Wallace, Idaho and the Silver Valley's finest brewery/restaurant, The City Limits, and met up with our lifelong friend, Kenton Bird. Kenton was in town to make a donation to the Wallace District Mining Museum. Christy and I enjoyed the in house (North Idaho Mountain Brewery) raspberry wheat ale -- a refreshing and tart fruit beer -- and my French dip was delicious. Our conversation with Kenton was wide-ranging. It was especially fun getting caught up on Kenton's new administrative post at the U of Idaho and, as you can see from this picture, straightening out all the world's many ills:
2. Christy invited Mom and me over to her new house next door for petite sirloin steak, corn on the cob, green salad, and fresh raspberry pie. Our dinner was awesome and it was fun to have such a good dinner with Mom's most excellent new next door neighbor.
3. Everett arrived back home from his trip today to Christy and Everett's on the market house near Kettle Falls. He did some cleaning up at the other house and, most importantly, he was able to get the up until today elusive cat, Junebug, into a carrier and bring her to Kellogg. Coming after many futile efforts, Junebug's capture was the source of great joy for Christy and Everett -- and now their family of cats is all accounted for and living safely in their new home.
