Bonus Weekend

What's even better than Friday, the last day of the work week?

That would be Friday off.

Yesterday, Friday, the 9th of February, was not only the third and final day of M's Boards (can I hear an "Amen!" brothers & sisters?), but also found Dee-wayne Brammage, my oldest friend in the world, in town for a visit.

I had no choice but to play hookey. (Can I get a witness?!)

Dee-wayne's doing book research, so after dropping M off at the test site, we headed up to Prescott, looking for abandoned mines and railroad lines... (throw in a dog named Blue and you got yourself the start to a purty good song).

Later, after she'd finished the test, M and I conjoined at Carly's, then Chez Nous, to toast her success:
The test results won't be back for a month and a half - true - but having traversed the ring of fire with life, limb and sanity* intact - survival is victory!

The fact that we're still talking to each other?


*Sanity is, of course, a relative term.
