(So boring without pictures! Just one more day.) I woke up at almost 10am, this morning, just as Dennis finished preparing an amazing breakfast of smoked salmon omelet with zucchini – it was wicked good, and I usually don’t even like fish! I called the Port Angeles branch of Bank of America, to verify my credit card had indeed arrived, and I also arranged to have a new ATM card forwarded to the branch in Aberdeen, WA, so I could pick it up there in a few days. Paula drove me the 13 miles to Port Angeles, and I got my card. We also stopped in at a bookstore, so I could get Dennis a copy of my favorite astro book, The Stars: A New Way To See Them, by H.A. Rey. We also stopped in at Swains, the local “general store,” which was jam packed with all kinds of merchandise, to get a $1.34 coin purse for my new fanny pack. We went back home after that, and I continued loading phone numbers into my computer and phone. Then we had a wonderful vegetable and chicken stew that Dennis cooked up, and chatted away. Pamela went to bed, and Dennis and I watched the movie, “The Green Mile,” because I was reading the book – cool movie! I’d only gotten about one-fifth of the way into the book, and it seemed like a “regular” story, without anything weird happening. True to Steven King, though, a definite paranormal twist showed up, and was deftly worked into the plot. After the movie, we both retired – he had to get up at 5am, and it was now 1am(!)
