On The Road To Seaside.

Well, Hugo finall showed up at 11:30 — I left him to finish up the rest of the insulation work in the attic.

Headed to Seaside today — ETA is to be checked in with the BagBoy by 4pm. Stopped in Olympia for gas and to hit the markdown meat rack — scored big time:

  • Spiral cut ham half
  • Couple of packs of lamb chops
  • Bacon
  • Bratwurst
  • T-bone steak
  • Rolled skirt steak with spinach and cheese
  • Smoked ham hocks
  • 2# of ground bison

And some salad stuff, but basically it was a meat run. Spent $75, saved $45. Not bad.

Actually manages to pick up the BagBoy, dealt with the front desk, signed up for “owner re-eduation” for $75 (more than I paid for the two nights) and we were in the room by four. Since he had dinner planned with his Uncle (no, not this Uncle) I had to get him back to the house by 7.

A funny thing happened on the way home. Backing out of the parking space, I heard this crunch, like running over a can. Didn’t think much about it — did the round-trip before realizing I couldn’t find my glasses. Retraced my steps and found this by my previous parking space.

Yes, that would be my reading glasses crushed by my car. I now have one lens left, and no back-up pair in the suitcase (rare).

Had a steak for dinner (should have fired up the grill), watched a little TV, and crashed early, tired from the drive.
