this week i

flew west, fourth of july 33% longer.  this is my dad.  he gets all pissy when i put button-down shirts in the washing machine.  love him anyway.

spent as much time as possible in the suburbs..

..a whirlwind hello, goodbye at work, some meals with some friends, coffee deliveries, gouge sharpening, etc. etc.

found this behind the couch.  from ten years ago.  mom painted that cactus behind her.  here, i'll zoom in.

blinked and next thing i knew i was in the salvador airport with an open flame on the tv.  and a lone clapper when we landed.  a dying breed.
