    Yes, the pandemic has kept us apart for nearly two years now, and caused multiple fun expeditions to get cancelled. Fingers crossed this time.

    The PCR test I just took so that I could fly may not be done in time, because WA State is backed up on testing, the results might not even be back in time to be "current". There's allegedly a popup testing place near the airport where you can hand them a bale of cash, and you get 60 minute turnaround, we shall see what happens. And when her mother tried to fly out last week, someone had hacked the UK's traveler-locator system, so she was unable to travel for several days until that got sorted out, which of course also required an additional covid test as the first had expired.

    Fun!

    Creemees are a Vermont ice cream thing. They're the same as soft-serve ice cream anywhere else. Not sure why they're called creemees in VT.

    Cool-look what I found when I googled it:

    "









    So, Why Do Vermonters Call It a Creemee? In the past, ice cream in Vermont was made with a higher butterfat content, which gave it a creamier texture, so "creemee" comes from "creamy." "

    Bae: I know someone who did Hadrian's Wall and that absolutely sounded like my idea of a good time, so enjoy!
    I am on vacation this week and today we visited a wonderful botanical garden, and some great museums may be in our near future.

    That's right--there is definitely more butterfat in creemees! So good.

    I am not sure there can ever be too much butterfat in anything.
