I woke up late today because my alarm clock was set to the wrong time. I guess traveling through three time zones in five days can add some confusion. We had some Huckleberry coffee I had bought in South Dakota and the consensus was unanimous: It was disgusting. Huckleberries are basically like a really revolting blueberry, and should never be eaten in coffee form.

Storms rolled in again after breakfast and we were treated to all the thunder and lightning we would want. We had a joint dinner out on the picnic table with more crab, salmon and corn. Larissa called, and if I get a chance, I will try to stop by her place in Chicago on the way down to Arkansas.

We saw the bats leaving the attic again and counted approximately 53. Later we set up Cecil's projector to see some pictures and started with Jeff's pictures of Hong Kong and Bangkok. I was up next and only got 1/3 of the way through before everyone was too tired to continue.

My Grandfather, Cook (on the right, with the "far-away-eyes") and his brother Everett. Apparently, this was at their homestead in North Dakota, USA, where they were both diagnosed with tuberculosis. They were advised to move to a drier climate. Soon after, my Grandfather packed up his belongings on his horse and rode to New Mexico. Everett had affairs and obligations to wrap up and planned to follow his brother in a few months; Everett didn't survive the winter.

The items on the table and wall are some interesting details in this scene.

Circa 1905.
