I took a walk late Sunday afternoon and then had to pack since I’m heading out to the ‘salt mine’ in Salt Lake City again in the morning. I am pressing a new suitcase into service that I have actually had for a long time, bought it at a sale. Part of the reason for the new suitcase is that I had a melt-down in my suitcase last Thursday while the rental car was parked in the sun all day with our luggage. I tucked a whole slab of chocolate into the side of the suitcase – and of course it was no match for the inferno in the car’s trunk. It liquefied and stained several items of clothing. (I got most of the stains out to my surprise. I used club soda to rinse it, scrubbed it as best I could, and then used Tide detergent and my washing machine’s ‘extra hot’ sanitary cycle).
Monday/ Correction : It’s Montana. With apologies to Steve for not recognizing his ‘home state’ – and thanks to Bryan for pointing out that the outline in the bar sign picture above is the state of Montana and NOT Washington state. I was not paying attention! There is no jagged Puget Sound coastline in this outline.
