I don’t normally do a lot for Columbus Day. I don’t think many people do, outside certain neighborhoods in New York City. However, this year I took a little trip over the holiday weekend, but I am back. I was on the road for eight hours yesterday, and, of course, rain fell on this part of the world for the first time in about six weeks. No on is complaining, though. The lawns are dead, and even established shrubbery was beginning to suffer. Today’s oldie is from June of 2011. Disclosure: the dishwasher in my house is more like a “clean-dish hider.” Loading it and pushing a button is easy; unloading it is the onerous part.
