People keep telling me, "I've been reading your blog." It's like they think they'll see something of substance here.

So, it turns out that spilling citronella oil on a quilt is a surprisingly poor mosquito deterrent. I woke up with more bites this morning than probably any other time since mosquito season began.

Curiously enough, mosquito season seems to have begun the very day tha Bob arrived. I'm trying not to hold it against him, but it's not a problem I've had to deal with before, so...

The girls (aside from having a lot of mosquito bites) have had a good week. They've been happy to go about their usual routines, but have also jumped at any chance to include Bob in them ... or run downstairs for a couple leaves of lettuce, or ask a question or deliver a cup of coffee, etc.

We shared a couple of meals and an afternoon or two, and everyone got along splendidly.

Now they're off for a week including, I understand, a trip to the beach. I've got a couple of days off this week as well, which will be nice.

For now, we have a pizza and a couple of beers and San Rafael's only Monty Python movie (The Meaning of Life), which is about my speed for tonight.

This is so encouraging! Well, except for the mosquitoes. Oh, and Bob has lettuce? What gives?
