I was catching up on the bread coffee chocolate yoga blog and remembered.
These two cats from Denmark camped with us. John and Keil. They brought with them coffee of Gevalia. Maybe you have seen this coffee in upscale magazines. This is some really kicking coffee. Rich and full bodied. Cooked on a camp stove it was tastey. They left me two bags to bring home. Cooked up this afternoon in my vac pot and it was glorious. We had a cup of Folgers on the last day before returning home and were wondering what went wrong with the coffee. We had just gotten used to the good stuff.
John also brought along some good chocolate. Lindt 85% cocao. This is the kind of chocolate that you can only eat one square of at a time. It is not the hershey's wax flavored chocolate. It is pure goodness. Melt in your mouth and savor. Not chocolate for the kiddies.
They also brought some cigarettes. On the package in black and white, taking up half of the box. Smoking Kills on the other side. Smoking causes fatal lung cancer. Still people pick these things up and suck the death into thier lungs.

Back in town. It was a blessing to sleep in my own bed again. A week on the ground with on old tri-fold matress pad was starting to get a bit old. The tent is great and being outdoors is great but going to bed at midnight and waking up before the sun came up starts to wear down the body and mind. The weather in South Dakota was great this year. Rarely does it turn out so very wonderful. Beautiful most every day. Very gental. Everything that needed to get done got done. I cooked about 250 lbs. of buffalo or beef each day for four days. If you need soup to feed about 800 folks just give me a call.
I have a stack of mail to answer. A litiney of phone calls to return. I may just act like I am gone until next week. Angela and I are going to CO to our cabin in the mountains. I am looking forward to rowing across the lake. Catching some trout and just hanging out. Head back through Santa Fe and see my brother who is going to be teaching Junior English there this year. It will be good to have him in Santa Fe again.
Time to write some bills. or go find some ice cream. The ice cream sounds better.
See some of yous tonight.
