Thu: Pokey and I had a pleasant quiet day catching up with online stuff at the local library (residence to Frank) and Panera Bread. Both places rather slow on their networks, but better than none!

Interesting Ghost Tour of HP by Rick Garland at 3 of the most haunted houses there. Highly recommended and well worth the US$14.

Happy Father’s Day to all fathers. Fond memories of my own father and thank you for life.

Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow,
That I shall say good night till it be morrow – Shakespeare
