So naturally the local post office was SOLD OUT of one cent stamps yesterday.  I know, I know, I should have planned ahead!

I went to Costco yesterday and noticed that the price of their 100-pack of the forever stamps DID NOT go up!  They were still $41. :D

That's the title of my next protest folk ballad:  I Won't Be Going to Issaquah...  ;)

Good thing we already rearranged the mini-Seattle-get-together to be next Thursday.   I won't be going to Issaquah until next week.

Yay!  And I suppose that I should actually order tickets for next Saturday's performance! ;)

By the way, for those who are interested, the ION network is showing the Quantum Leap episode that involves "Man of La Mancha," tonight at 9:00 PM.  I've never seen it, though heard about it, so will have my DVR recording it.

That channel is not available in this area. :-\

The first time that I was in a production of Man of La Mancha, this episode was broadcast during our rehearsal time.  I didn't get to see it until many years later.  I loved this episode.  And I didn't know that Michele Pawk was in it, along with Janine Turner and John Cullum, who both went on to be in "Northern Exposure" together.  What a coinky-dink! :D

Colony Records is not showing the Evening Primrose CD on their website.

I wonder what they're selling it for in the store. ::)

NY TIMES

Quote
Italian’s Detention Illustrates Dangers Foreign Visitors Face
 
He was a carefree Italian with a recent law degree from a Roman university. She was “a totally Virginia girl,” as she puts it, raised across the road from George Washington’s home. Their romance, sparked by a 2006 meeting in a supermarket in Rome, soon brought the Italian, Domenico Salerno, on frequent visits to Alexandria, Va., where he was welcomed like a favorite son by the parents and neighbors of his girlfriend, Caitlin Cooper.

But on April 29, when Mr. Salerno, 35, presented his passport at Washington Dulles International Airport, a Customs and Border Protection agent refused to let him into the United States. And after hours of questioning, agents would not let him travel back to Rome, either; over his protests in fractured English, he said, they insisted that he had expressed a fear of returning to Italy and had asked for asylum.

Ms. Cooper, 23, who had promised to show her boyfriend another side of her country on this visit — meaning Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon — eventually learned that he had been sent in shackles to a rural Virginia jail. And there he remained for more than 10 days, locked up without charges or legal recourse while Ms. Cooper, her parents and their well-connected neighbors tried everything to get him out.

After being turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement, he was taken to the Pamunkey Regional Jail in Hanover, Va., where he ended up in a barracks with 75 other men, including asylum-seekers who told him they had been waiting a year.

Ten days after he landed in Washington, Mr. Salerno was still incarcerated, despite efforts by Senator John W. Warner, Republican of Virginia, and two former immigration prosecutors hired by the Coopers.
“He’s just really scared,” Ms. Cooper said in an interview last Thursday. “He asked me if Virginia has the death penalty.”

Luis Paoli, a lawyer hired by the Coopers, said there was no limit on detention while waiting for an asylum interview. But even after officials agreed the asylum issue had been a mistake, Mr. Salerno was not released.

“Now an innocent European, who has never broken any laws, committed any crimes, or overstayed his visa, is being held in a county jail,” Ms. Cooper wrote in an e-mail message to The New York Times last Wednesday, prompting a reporter’s inquiries.

Less than 24 hours later, immigration officials intervened and arranged to deliver Mr. Salerno to Dulles, where last Friday he flew to Rome. Ms. Cooper, who said she was now considering moving to Italy, was by his side.


From mindless bureaucrats and idiotic civil servants, good Lord deliver us!

Good Afternoon!  (I'm going ahead and starting to adjust back to EST time.)

Breakfast has been consumed.  Plane food and snacks have been bought.  And now I just need to finish my last bit of packing.  So.. Until NYC...

-I shall wave as I pass over those who I fly over. :)

Laters...

DR Jose, safe travel vibes!

And they even have a real candy store where you can pick and choose from your favorites instead of purchasing pre-packed boxes. :D :D

Speaking of "missing"...

Where is Lady Jane of Sherlock Manor?

Wednesday mornings I hike, without Sherlock, with a group of friends.  I always took Echo but then I didn't need to worry about her joints if we ended up on steep trails.

Thank you.  We all wish we had remembered our cameras.  It was exciting as the wild flowers have begun to bloom & there was a lovely variety of them.  We also saw a hummingbird with a flash of ruby.  Someone said it was a red-headed something I don't remember.  Maybe DR Laura knows.

Finished addressing packages and re-boxing up books to take to trade.  I'm going to try and do that this evening after my meeting, but it depends on how quickly I can get out of there.  If I can get them to let me talk about my stuff first I may only have to be there for a half-hour, in which case I could make the book store by eight (they're open until ten).  The guy who does the better books isn't there until four.  I could try and take them right at four - it really shouldn't take more than an hour for him to go through the three boxes and make his trade offer.

DR Vixmom-What you describe sounds a lot like the what I experienced when I pinched a nerve in my neck.  I could not move it at all so I'm hoping what you have isn't as bad.
