In Search of Chocolate
Yesterday I walked uptown St. Helens in search of fudge, and found only one measly chunk of Rocky Road, which I left at the store.
I found a book at the used book store and struck up a conversation with the owner/operator who invited me back and said she could hook me up with internet if I needed.
Today I AGAIN had a yen for chocolate, and decided a mocha and a computer session would fit the bill. Unfortunately, this shop, which does not open until noon, does not have decaf! So I may find myself lying awake until midnight, because I just could NOT do without the chocolate today. And it's Ghiradelli chocolate! Yum.
Anyway, I just wanted to make a plug for the Word for Word book shop and it's pleasant owner Susan Conn. She is very gracious, even though we can connect to their network, but not to the internet. Al WAS on his way up with me, but was waylaid by boat buddies who have been playing with their radios all afternoon, inputting MSSI numbers and calling each other--new technology! He needs to get here soon and see if he can diagnose my connection problem!
