The Thrill of Living

Still resting and recovering from another week at Hotel California. But it's a great weekend to just hang out and do nothing, so I'm doing lots of that, plus a little housecleaning. Oh, and finally getting back to the gym.

Tentatively planning a short visit to San Francisco next month, maybe around May 17-22.

And I think that's about as much as I can handle for right now.
