Good weekend  
A vacation that I really needed. A good time with Kyna.

The drive up was blessedly uneventful. A stop in Bellingham for lunch, no trouble at the border, barely touching Victoria rush-hour traffic, and torrential downpours to greet us in the mountains. A good early start on fall, even though we were a bit more soaked than we had planned. Dinner at Earl's, a few drinks, and an early night after a quick prowl through The Village.

Sleep in until noon, watch some cartoons while munching on breakfast, then up to the top of the mountain for a hike, to remind us how out of shape we both are. We stopped by a little cafe for lunch, then wandered back to relax for a little while. Mongolie dinner, followed by a visit to the "Irish Pub".

Sunday, we made a token attempt at shopping for gifts, some more walking, more relaxing, and a nice dinner at the Bearfoot Bistro (delightful decadence!). That left monday for a lazy morning, one last stroll over to my favorite little bistro for breakfast, and a pleasant drive back to Seattle. I've been driving far too much in the past week or so, but it was worth it. Stopped by to get some cider, Canadian Coke, and Cadbury chocolates.

When I was buying the cider, the man at the liquer store pointed out that my signature on the sales slip had no resemblance to the signature on my driver's license. Kyna went to go get my passport, while I chatted with the nice man, who seemed very surprised when I told him that this was the first time in my life anybody had actually compared signatures. He offered to let me "try again" to duplicate the signature on my license, but I thought the entire idea was somewhat silly. By that time, Kyna returned with my passport, which contained a signature much closer to what I commonly use these days.

I was telling my Mom about this weekend with Kyna, and she commented, in a very Blakey-subtle way, "Did you propose to her yet? Hope so.". I know that I tend to be about as subtle as a train wreck; sometimes it is good to see these little reminders that it runs in the family.

I guess I don't have to hurt you yet. ;)
