Comments: So, I stayed wide awake since the MidEvent Survey! Immediately after posting, we packed ourselves up to go find some place to eat supper. After driving around for a little while—during which I was navigating and couldn't really read—we settled on Carmela's Mexican Restaurant in downtown Arcata. The food was good, though the chips & salsa weren't as good as our favorite local restaurant back in Texas. I'm still reading A Face Turned Backward by Lauren Haney. It's a mystery set in ancient Egypt, second in a series of eight, and I am enjoying it very much. I have a couple of other books to choose from as the night goes on. And, on the way back to the hotel from supper, we stopped at a convenience store and I picked up 4 diet cokes to help me get through the wee hours of the night. And now, dear friends, I'm going back to reading.
