Went to Timmy's down the street a bit for a midafternoon cup of wake-me-up. It's a very Taranaki winter day out there - rain rather than snow. And a Taranaki feel to it as well, although the landscape is proportionally opposite: whereas that lovely spot of New Zealand has one mountain and a large body of water, Vernon has many mountains and a somewhat smaller body of water.
Sneaking in this quick note to pass the time. Would also like to pass on a new favorite blog - hope I've got it right without my personal bookmarks in place (I'll list it soon) called Panopticon.
One more sleep and then wingward north.
