First order of business this morning was to get the auto air-conditioning repaired. The problem had been diagnosed in Great Falls but since they didn’t have the part they arranged for the Spokane dealer to order it for us. Then we got a haircut for Steve, got tea and fritters at at Starbucks, and wandered around a wonderful local park, Manito Park, for hours. After lunch we went to the UPS store to pick up our mail only to discover we were at the wrong location! Found the right one, got connected with our mail and took care of a few more little details. This evening we had a wonderful dinner with Chris, formerly of Jacksonville and Tampa, now a brand new resident of Spokane and friend of Greg and of CJ. We enjoyed food and brew and great conversation at O’Doherty’s Irish Pub then continued the conversation as we explored the Spokane River Falls and the Riverfront Park. We were expounding on the delightful mix of urban environment and small town feeling when someone drove by in a convertible with top down and the Mayberry theme playing on the sound system. It just seemed to capture the spirit perfectly!
