Mellow and Yellow

Saturday, jason_brez came over and basically cooked dinner for us. If only more of our friends would cater to our needs in this way! I fired up the grill and considered my culinary input over. London broil, greek salad and taters, precious. Wine and conversation flowed in a mighty synergistic confluence.
Sunday, Becca and I painted the kitchen 'sunshower' yellow, while I kept a distracted eye on the ebay auctions that finally totted up to about $1,100. Some of the coins went for way less than they were worth, but other things went for more than they cost to buy new at amazon. So the total amount is not too much less than I hoped. Beyond going out to all corners of the US, shipments will be sent off to the UK, France, Germany, Italy and New Zealand.
