Big plans

Well. I went through my first week at my new job, and I think it's a good fit.

Today is a beautifully sunny day in Lynden, Washington, my home town. (What was it Garrison Keillor would say? "Well, it's been a quiet week in Lake Wobegon, Minnesota, my hometown, out there on the edge of the prairie.") My plan is to attend the Home & Garden Show at the fairgrounds with my dad and mom, including having lunch at one of the food booths. My dad and I usually have bratwurst. My favorite part to visit is the gardening section, where all the local nurseries and landscapers have beautiful displays set up and flowers are blooming all over the place. It's a little foretaste of heaven, I mean, spring and summer gardens.
