Staying brief because LJ was down yesterday/today and still not working for some people.

     Nice to have some cooler days and mornings over the weekend and actually get to open my windows! Sunday was just delicious.

I was at least the second American to see it: had to pay brokerage fees to get it from Canada, and the US Customs folks had to open and inspect every single box and envelope inside the big box, those snoops! I think I want their job. ;) Anyway, more on that later...
