Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

We're in Las Vegas right now, waiting to spread the ashes of my MIL; forestcats brother couldn't get up until just about now, and won't be here for another hour. Feh.

On the drive out, we stopped in Hesperia to eat at a new Sonic drive-in. I've seen national advertising for them for some years, especially on the Food Network. Their foodstuff doesn't hold a candle to Fatburger or even Wendy's, so I view it as another fast food joint that I'll ignore, henceforth.

I did manage to see one meteor while we drove through the desert. I think the car's interior lights might have drowned out others. Still, it's nice that I managed to see one of the Perseids.

We got into Vegas well after 1AM, and collapsed into bed at the motel. I'm now logging into the net from my in-law's computer.

We've gathered up the ashes from several of my MIL's pets as well as hers, and we're supposed to spread them outside the house. I've brought dust masks for protection.

*Sigh*.

Before we even left for our journey, I finished re-reading Hunter S. Thompson's novel, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, on my new Sony Personal Reader System. It looked pretty good, and with that file type, I could change the font to be large enough to comfortably read without difficulty. Not so much when I have a Adobe file, though. Those seem to come through as if they were photos, not files. Anyway, I still find his rants and insanity entertaining, even though it's been decades since his adventures in Vegas. I'd call this a recommended read.
