My sister’s dog is high:
Aspen apparently feeling uber-relaxed following his latest chemo treatment. Fingers crossed it helps!
It never fails. Every night, Akemi and I work out while watching one of the food shows, be it Hell’s Kitchen, Master Chef, Top Chef, Top Chef Masters, Chuck’s Day Off, Chef Academy, or Around the World in 80 Plates. And, every night, we go to bed craving whatever dish happened to be featured on that evening’s show. The other day, it was souffle.

I need me one of those after-market add-ons they sell in South Africa, built in flame throwers to discourage car jackers and squeejee kids.
Anyway, I was somewhat hearted because, the next day, Marsha sent me an email explaining that, after seeing us to our car, she and Brett stopped by the market. On their way back, they came across this little scene -
The offending motorcycle being ticketed. In retrospect, not running it over was the right choice.
