Bob and I had a funny and very sweet date tonight. He's been holed up in the house with his sore back and I've been working long hours, so this evening he was feeling well enough to get into the comfortable car and drive around and we both wanted a change of scene. He picked me up at work and we first intended to get takeout and go sit at the high parkinglot at Pedernales Falls State Park and have a picnic and wahtch the stars and talk, but the sky was all hazy-cloudy and we figured it wasn't worth the gas to get out there and see no stars. So we cruised the Half Price Book Stores, found three more of the Orson Scott Card Alvin Maker books, had our picnic in the Town Lake parking lot, felt like kids out on a car date.
