Boring! Well, maybe except for the mosquitoes

Windows had not arrived in Minot!

We stayed overnight, bought $400+ worth of stuff we needed; potato peeler, toilet brush, brekkie cereal bowls, (forgot the clothes hangers), a vice, a 20 ton hydrolic jack to lift the back of the house a couple of inches; you know, all the stuff any decent householder needs to survive in the wilderness!

And because I was exhausted afer all that shopping, we stayed the night at a Comfort Inn - non-smoking room away from the indoor pool smells. When a motel says it has non-smoking rooms, I expect that the rooms ought never have been smoked! Silly me!!

Who doesn't know that the damn fragrance is stronger than any for whichI have paid fifty dollars? The walls reeked!

We headed off to see Brad Pitt in Inglorious Basterds! Since have read several reviews - all mixed - must be a Tarantino! I loved the first thirty minutes and the last twenty. The rest of the film could have mostly been left on the cutting room floor!! But I have a prejudice against lack of focus in any film on which I spend money or time.

Home again, home again jiggidy jig! Mosquitoes are rife tonight. We've run off to write blogs inside!!

No T.V. ONly the quiet chatter of computer keyboards and the humming. :)
