Deliciousness is good
No word from my father on how my mother is, so I'm assuming she's still in surgery. I'm sure everything is fine, though I am anxious.
So I'm keeping my mind off of it by enjoying some fantastic fruit. I mentioned that I've been able to eat fairly well so far, but it's been difficult to get enough fruits and veggies. So I bought about $15 worth of produce at a store across the street from the hotel, and have been eating handfuls of grapes and carrots one after the other. Next are the nectarines. Thanks, Nature!
And as an added bonus, I got to have a conversation about the UFC with one of the guys who works there; he saw the T-shirt I was wearing, which says, "Rey Diogo Brazilian Jiu Jitsu" on it, and asked me about it. So that's cool. BTW, Rey Diogo is a black belt under Carlson Sr. who lives in LA now. I'm planning to visit him and his wife and their son when I get to CA.
Now it's on to western KS, hopefully some slightly irregular Russell Stover candy, and maybe, depending on how I feel, the CO border. And most importantly, a call from my father with good news about my mother.
