... out for dinner, but the lateness and the weather...Rats! I just checked back at what I wrote and you already know about the food part...
Anyway, it snowed a good four inches here in K-town, on top of the eight or so inches from yesterday. The motel slept good, regardless of whether it didn't really appeal to Lynn as much as to me. Is this a guy thing, or what??

We drove approximately 290 miles today.
Tomorrow we plan to get massages and relax.
