Back East

It's about 3:20AM and I've been back home for all of 2 hours now. California was nice, but I didn't have nearly enough time to visit with people (or Janie Sparkles). Still, it's nice to be home with my sweetie, who woke up enough to say "happy birthday," and my own precious little snorty dog, who gave me lots of kisses. There shall be a better post later, once I have a chance to upload more photos. And sleep. Meantime, here's one of me chugging delicious hot chocolate at the Scharffen Berger factory, where I showed far less fiscal restraint than David was likely hoping.
