    My car repairs are finished and it looks like a new car! I had the repairs done in Mt Airy because no one in Winston-Salem could do them before October I was told (called 5 different places). The body shop in Mt Airy got it completely finished in 4 days.

Very clean, nice porches/balconies, view of the lighthouse. (sigh!)
    There's a big hayfield up near Buxton… one in particular. It's got a long rock wall with a big oak tree at the north end. It's like something out of a Robert Frost poem.

    Look. It's not my fault he didn't have a counterfeit detection pen. The way I look at it is I didn't take advantage of this child. I taught him a lesson in loss prevention. He should have taken one look at me and thought there was no way this loser has a $100 bill.

    He learned a valuable lesson. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.

    Exactly what I was thinking. And then SR was on BBC Americas last night.

    full quote. sorry, 'buxton' triggered the memory.

    There's a big hayfield up near Buxton...One in particular. It's got a long rock wall, a big oak tree at the north end. It's like something out of a Robert Frost poem. It's where I asked my wife to marry me. We went there for a picnic and made love under that oak and I asked and she said yes. Promise me, Red. If you ever get out, find that spot. In the base of that wall, you'll find a rock that has no earthly business in a Maine hayfield. A piece of black, volcanic glass. There's something buried under it I want you to have.

    Ah! I remembered most of the quote, but apparently forgot the Buxton part. Haven't watched it in a while. I saw it was on BBCA last night, too, but had already missed most of it.

    years from now they will still be reviewing academic papers about my Costco visit today. Out the door in 20 minutes, spend $557. Who doesn't love five and a half pounds of filet mignons?
