Indio, California: A crew arrived at 7a to
clean our casita. Being away for basically two weeks, combined with terrible
wind/sand storms, made me super happy I had reserved Maricela's magic team

Mary & Captain Jim came by to restock our fridge this morning. Their kids had
visited over Spring Break (while we were away) and left a basically-full bottle

But a girl cannot live on hot sauce alone, so I ventured on down
to the local supermarket (Ralphs)
to restock. Oh, goodness, how those condiments do add up.
One hour later... I brought the goods (five bags!) back to the bus and then set-out again with
DT to pick up other necessities at
This evening we watched Lisa's alma mater, The George Washington
University, make it into the
final game of the NIT. Though Lisa graduated in
2003, DT and I have remained true to her school and continue to follow The Colonials. How fun to see this team succeed! This girl just can't
get enough college hoops.
And this evening I cooked for the first time since March 17th, when I made Beer,
Cheese & Potato Soup for Lisa and a cast of friends on St. Patrick's Day in
Oregon. (Was that only 13 days ago?) To celebrate returning
to the desert, to the stove, a clean bus, a clean casita, hot water and a working
refrigerator, I prepared an old recipe from this website: Fettuccini
with Asparagus & Lemon.
Until my next update, I remain, your Hail to the Buff,
Hail to the Blue, Loyal to GW correspondent.
