For my first couple of laps this morning, the finger that I snipped a divot out of hurt like a sonofabitch. It really did. Was I going to have to stop swimming now because of a hurt finger???? I kept going and after about 5 laps, the hurt started to ease up and after 10 it was gone, so whew.

But the big news this morning is that the new exit is open. So now, instead of getting off the bridge and going through 10 blocks of stop lights on a city street, I can get off the bridge and take a divided highway with zero stops until I get just across the street from my building!

It's a great option but the exit off the bridge is one horribly scary 360 one lane circle down to the highway and it's a killer. It may be a show stopper for me. Maybe when I try it in daylight, I'll be able to start getting used to it.

The other good news is traffic. At 6:30, when I come home, there wasn't any. And, in fact, the blog that covers traffic there the best just now reported the first clog didn't come til 8. Wow. and wonderful.

A while back msconduct mentioned that she was coming to Seattle on a vacation and I offered to help her with any questions she might have. This morning I got a delightful note taking me up on my offer. She, helpfully, listed a great selection of things they want to do and see so making it way easier for me to give them info they can really use.

I'm having a delightful time checking on this bit and that and thinking about where they might stay and what they might want to see and what to recommend. Seattle is really a great place to visit, plus, they, wisely, want to get out of downtown to see stuff in the surrounds.

Coincidentally I just got an email from my other friends from New Zealand and they are coming back next summer - 2020. Kiwis and Summer. A good mix.

I need to make a Costco run and I'm thinking today might be a good day for that. I might glue some stuff and then go while it dries.

We lost another Susan Dennis. This one in Bournemouth on the southern coast of England. I have Google set up to send me an alert at the mention of "susan dennis". Sometimes, it's this journal. Sometimes it's a restaurant reviewer in Florida. Or a photographer in Savannah. Or a conservationist in Australia. Never fails to shake me a bit to see "Susan Dennis funeral details" in bold when I open a note.

Ok, time to get dressed and get crackin'!
