There's a million things around the house that just couldn't get done while my associate was on vacation (or, for that matter, while *I* was on vacation!), but I made a start at getting some of that done yesterday.

I took the car in for an oil change at our mechanics; normally I get there when he opens, but yesterday I was persuaded to just go back to sleep when the alarm went off, so I got to the shop much later than usual. By arriving early, typically I'm out very quickly, as an oil change doesn't require much work, but there were cars ahead of me, and I had to wait for a while. Hanging out there was fun! We chatted, had a bite to eat...very nice.

After that, a quick stop at the grocery store, and then home.

Midafternoon, and we left the house to go to Newhall to see Ben, one of the cast of Dungeonmaster, play in a musical called Return to the Forbidden Planet. Now, forestcats and I aren't fans of musicals, in general, but this one was different. The cast was backed up by a four piece rock band, and they used rock and roll classics to fit into the narrative structure. The show appealed to the Shakespeare geek, the old 50s movies geek, the Science Fiction geek, and the Rock and Roll geek, all in one! Very amusing. Once there, we recognized the bartender in the foyer as a player from DM, and later found out that the robot member of the cast was our new Guardian of the Flame! Nice to support our own in that way!

BTW, before the show, we stopped at a restaurant a mile from the venue called The Hidden Havana Cuban Cafe, and without Yelp, we'd never have found it. The food was fantastic, and reasonably priced. I don't often clean my plate; here I did. Every morsel, every drop. Wonderful place.
