Good morrow…. I’m very late getting up, as I went out last night with my two kids, where we had great fun, watching my six-foot four, 210 lb. son annihilate a “burger challenge” by eating 10 1/3 lb. burgers in 15 minutes, thus earning a t-shirt, and a tummy bulge….. At any rate, it’s way too late to put together enough to post, without excessive cheating, so, we’ll cheat all the way, with a blast from the past.

The one that was completed for posting on the 13th has not made it to the Net, as I haven’t figured out yet whether it will work to edit the old post, or just add a new one with that material….. The title I came up with on the 13th was certainly one of the best I’ve done… “Despite the disaster, yak butter was still on the menu….” Brilliant, if I do say so myself, as it tells a whole story all by itself, without any supportive material; I don’t know about y’all, but I get a mental vision of some poor sap in a dingy kitchen, struggling to chop vegetables, as he worries about the price of yak butter…. perhaps not quite Hemingway, but, maybe Raymond Chandler?…. Okay, Steven King…
