We got to see all five burrowing owlets and one parent near Elinor's house this morning, and lots and lots of antelope.  Our day in town was mostly productive (we accomplished a lot of errands in addition to Elinor's pedicure) but unfortunately the doc's office would not refill her Rx of pain meds "until tomorrow". She has been out since before the holiday weekend (the doctor had told her she could take more of them but of course that meant she'd use up the month's supply that much sooner) so she has not been getting much sleep and had hoped to remedy that today. 

I texted Alex when we were in town and I had service, and he called from the airport in Detroit (I think.) He's on his way to Nebraska to rejoin the Taste of Chaos tour, and not at all sorry to be leaving the Slipknot tour where he'd been filling in temporarily. The crew had off the 3rd and 4th, and had planned to spend it at someone's property by a river - but the bus broke down on the way there and their two days off were wasted. 

We had a delicious lunch at Fritz's, dining outside with a park across the street, and after a final stop at Safeway we headed back.  Close to Elinor's house sitting on a fence post right by the road was one of the burrowing owls, so I was able to get a very good close-up look at it.  They really are cute.

Tom and Neil had a good afternoon together, though I suspect they were both glad to see us return from town, around 5:30.  Now Terry's relaxing (!) by cooking dinner.  I just can't wrap my head around that one, but she swears it's true!
