I've been a bit remiss about posting for the last couple of weeks. I've had things to ponder and things to say, but my muse was on vacation, I guess, and the words really didn't flow.

Where to start?

A while back, we went to a Bat Mitzvah in one of the beach communities near the Hearst Castle. Since we drove there, we took I-5, which took us through the Grapevine, and we stopped for gasoline as we broke from the pass. I professed an acute chocolate deficiency, and walked into the gas station's store to pick something out. While in there, I found that they had a box of bars I'd never heard of, French Vanilla & Caramel Milky Ways. Huh? I picked up a couple to try out, and subsequently found that I liked them. So? Well, when we got home, I researched them to see if this was an up and coming release, to discover that the bars had been and gone already! Obviously the candy at this gas station doesn't move well, and this might be one of the last boxes in Southern California. A couple weeks later, we're heading north again to visit sekl and I pick up a bit more; then on the way home I bought nearly the whole box. Just weird, I guess...

On the Netflix front we've watched the entirety of season one of Black Sails, and I find it visually astonishing, and the economy as described makes sense. Not all the character interactions do, though, but in general I like the series. I know that season two's been shown, now to wait for it.

We've watched a few comedians via their streaming services, and one, Russ Ballard (I think???) comes to mind as a standout.

Dungeonmaster finishes its season today at a stage area in Griffith Park...called the Old Zoo. See you there!
