Spent Friday doing the little things everyone has to do, like the wash, getting some money for the trip, picking up a prescription, a stop at the grocery and still forgetting to get one item. In the afternoon I turned in my second dose of rental car. Perhaps when I get back from CA the Prius will be ready. The evening was the best part, celebrating my wife Joyce's birthday a couple of days ahead of time at a nice restaurant with good friends. Tomorrow it's pack and go. Next posting will be from California.
