May 13, 2006
We're celebrating Mother's Day a day early. Deena met Kathy and me at Home Depot at ten this morning and Kath (The Designated Mother) picked out two ocotillos and a Baja Fairy Duster (Calliandra californica, $30 cash), and we brought them home to plant. We fixed lunch, leftover munchilada from Pita Jungle dinner last night with the Wonderfuls, plus three cheese crisps, jumbo shrimps (three) and avocado. Deena went over financials and how much we should be putting away for retirement (hint: more than we're putting away now!).

I backed out the '49 and got it limbered up for an off-road race.

Not really.

Quite warm out. Must be close to 100. May go swimming this afternoon.

Been trying to post the Isaiah Mays Medal of Honor painting for a week, but it keeps falling through the cracks. Here it is, finally. This is from the forthcoming Wham Robbery Classic Gunfight which is at the printer in Kansas City even as you read this.

Deena got an iPod for her birthday last week and she and I are going up to Kathy's office to download some cool tunes (and delete all of those damn Steely Dan tunes Tommy loaded me up with!)
