Angel Outpost #6 in the Idaho Mountains

Angel Outpost #6 in the Idaho Mountains

I had a somewhat smooth return to Boise today.  It was such a smooth and direct trip from the hotel to the airport that I forgot to stop somewhere to get gas (that cost a pretty penny).  However, the flight was on time, I had a small row (2 seats) to myself, and the bumpy landing was short lived – I think the runway had some holes.


In all, the trip to meet Oliver and Gloria was far beyond my expectations.  I feel as though I have added to my family.  And the potential for the translation, publication, or archival placement of my father’s materials has taken on a greater reality than ever before.


Jake picked me up at the airport, after he had gone through his own bumpy drive through construction and getting turned around on the freeway.  I took him to his home, and then headed up to the mountain.  It was good to see the cats.  I had been so involved in the research process at Stanford that it almost seemed strange to be home.  That feeling has passed and I look forward to sleeping in my own bed tonight.


That reminds me:  The staff at the hotel turned down my bed last night on the opposite side from which I sleep.  After sleeping all night on my normal side, then getting up, I noticed that the other side was still turned down as if no one had slept in the bed.  My occupying the king-size bed on one side had made no impression whatsoever on the other side.  Odd.


I will be home until September 11th, when I fly to Seattle to visit Daen’s grandmother and father.  The big trip begins September 25th!
