Favorite surfing album:  Annette Sings Golden Surfing Hits!!!

I especially likes it when she sings "Surfer Boy" a riff on "Surfer Girl"  -  and paints the word picture as follows:

"And if my woody breaks down somewhere on my surf route,
  I'll strap my board to my back and hitch a ride in my wet suit!"

And this one:

Once at SEA-TAC, I just kept hoping that my bags would make it off the conveyor belt in time so that I could catch the last Light LINK train into downtown Seattle... And they did, and I did!

I stared giggling as soon as I got out of the Westlake Station. All the storefronts were closed, but I could already tell that this was no longer the Seattle that I viewed through my nine-year old eyes. I can't wait to see it in the daylight.

Alas, I just unpacked my bike, and it looks like it banged around a bit, and I'll need to get the back tire adjusted. Thankfully, there are two Brompton dealerships in the area, and I'll take it after I grab breakfast. Hopefully, they can take care of it on the spot.

Have you give me another reason NOT to go back to Seattle?

I left there at age 22 (1963); have visited several times since.  The last time was in 2004.  It had changed so much by then, I got lost.  It took me an hour of driving around to find the house I'd grown up in.

Nice after-effect of the recent rains here. (I did not take the photo.)

That's a stunning rainbow, DR John G.

The best (largest, most complete) one I ever saw was just this past May, driving from Columbus to Cincinnati.  There was no place at that moment to pull over and get a leisurely look, let alone take a picture.

Tuesday morning greetings!  It's definitely feeling like fall here in SW Ohio today.  I have some book group work to do that dovetails nicely with some Middfest work and it all involves reading about France.

This one is a "chamber orchestra" arrangement that, as well as I can recall now, I found imaginative and tasteful, better than many reduced orchestrations.  A couple of things irritated, but I'd have to go through it to find them.

I checked out my bike this morning, and it look likes the rear rack just got "crushed" a little bit which is making it rub against the rear fender. It should be an easy fix. I hope.

In the meaning, it turns out that my hotel has bikes for their guests' use. I may or may not take one out later. There's a lot around here I want to check out on foot.

Thanks for all the Travel Vibes.

All in all it was a good flight. The crew really tried to get us out of the gate ASAP and make us comfortable in the air. And my row-mates were quiet and freshly-bathed. ::)

DR Elmore - Glad to hear your meeting went well.

I guess you had dinner in the Pasta and Pizza restaurant in Eataly? My favorite is still the vegetable one. However, I do wish there was more crossover between the in-house restaurants.

And then there's the one with Frederica Von Stade. Or is that the one?

Just found out my cousin in Switzerland is due to deliver today. She doesn't know if it is to be a boy or girl. Or if the baby will actually arrive today. Since she's not in labor is it's much later there, it's doubtful.

Really??  Are they actually reading 100-200 books a year??

They do actually read 100-200 for sure. But that is how many they probably buy. Many of them also got a ton of books for free.
