Sampled "liver mush" for brekkie, with bacon and toast, a great start for the day. Then we off from Dev's but we will see her again at Andrew's in June.

I couldn't cheat and drive close to the left side of my lane because the traffic was so heavy and I couldn't cheat on the right side because there were potholes just to the right of the white line.
