Sitting on the front porch editing some photos from the weekend, enjoying the sunshine and my day off. Vince is still crashed out on the sofa – he came down from Van for a Nissan meet yesterday and Patrick and i kept him up late eating bottemless riblets and playing billards. I don’t know how he’s still sleeping, it’s far from quiet around here. Between Christian and i creaking around the house this morning (this house is *so* noisy), the neighbors pounding and sawing and sanding something in their front yard, garbage trucks rolling by more often than should be neccessary, and my infernal typing in the room next door, well… he must be a really sound sleeper. So i’ve moved out to the front porch (wireless internet is so neato).

We actually had two Nissan meetups yesterday, one down in southcenter (that i have pics from here) arranged by the Maxima guys, and then later in the evening we rolled to lynnwood to cross paths with the 240sx-heavy crew from NWN. I didn’t get to wash my car beforehand, as i spent the morning changing the oil and checking out the Sentra for Justin – he’s going to pick it up today. Actually, i’m going to head up to Stanwood to put tires on the truck at the shop where he works, and then bring him home with me to pick up the car. Anyway, both meets were good, pretty laid back, but it’s nearing the end of the season. It was also an unexpected sunny day after a couple weeks of dreary ones, so i don’t think anyone expected it would be a nice enough day to come out for a meet.

Jason stopped by yesterday to pick up a key, drop off a few things, and then is headed to an outdoor concert festival in nevada for the rest of the week. He will get back monday, Christian flies to Munich on sunday, Mom and Dad get here for a week sunday… the b&b is booked solid this month! 😉 I’m going to miss having Chrisitan around – he wasn’t here very long, and i’ve been working so much that i haven’t really seen him during these four short months other than in passing. I’m pretty bummed that i went to so much work to help him move here and then didn’t really get any quality time with him, and now it’s too late. And he’ll be a hemisphere away again for who knows how long. At least i have someone to stay with in europe again – but it’s going to be awhile, as i still haven’t paid for the last trip…

On a family note, everyone’s thoughts and prayers are with my Grama Polly today as she heads to the hospital for examination, to determine if she needs another heart surgery. I hope her news is good today.
