Most all my friends have this quality – the ability to grumble with charm -- and now I’m seeing it in my kids.
L.A. has none of the qualities a guy like me needs: affordable housing, decent diners, bait shops and old bookstores with ratty couches.
Visited the liquor aisles of the Midwestern supermarkets, the best liquor aisles in the world. They go on for about 300 yards.
We stopped by Mt. Rushmore for a peek. Gotta say, Jefferson’s nose looks a little big.
We are seeing these wide-open spaces of the American West, appreciating the majesty of the landscape, “a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture."
The Tetons were great. As I told Smartacus, they don’t call them Grand for nothing. These weren’t just any old Tetons, I can assure you that.
We’re hitting the road now because daily routine has reached our bones, and we’re feeling cranky and isolated.
My son Smartacus and I still haven't figured out “what now?” After "The Wedding," a long summer awaits. Blueberry pie, anyone?
