Back home from home

I got back home to Salem yesterday evening only to discover that I lost my USB cable for my digital camera and that my computer monitor had not somehow magically healed itself while I was gone. So, after a short stop at the house, I made a which run to the store to pick up a card reader and a new monitor.

Like I needed that expense.

So, anyway, I'm back home, and today it's back to working in the office, after spending the last several days not being tied to a desk.

Of course, today I still have quite a bit of writing to do to convert all those hand-scrawled notes into something usable from my employer. I will try to convent some of those notes and personal observations on the Pendleton Round-Up into some posts for here too. It was bitter sweet to be in my old stomping grounds. I saw a few familiar faces and the hospitality that makes me proud of the area where I grew up. And sadly I witness some old-fashioned narrow mindedness that makes me sad and ashamed of my heritage.

But it's good to be home and sleeping in my own bed. Although it's frickin' cold in the house. I'm tempted to turn on the heat. It's only 44 degrees outside. I think it's going to be a long winter.

Welcome back! We missed you.

Have I mention to you how much I hate your word verification. I swear, I either need new glasses or a new reading decoding method, because it takes me several tries to get my comments posted. What a cruel trick on an old innocent woman!

Sorry Brat. I'm just trying to avoid spam, and so far it seems to be working. But then again not making many posts seems to cut down on the spam comments too. By the way, when can we expect a new post on your site?
