Four of My Favorite Things

I got to combine four of my favorite things last weekend: time with Vicki, a visit to Monterrey, bike riding and the Firesign Theater. My favorite comedy troupe from the 1960s is giving what they have said, in at least one venue, might be their final live concert. That alone would make the tip exciting. Those of you who know Vicki may be surprised that she's willing to come to the concert, as the Firesign boys are not her taste. However, she does like Monterey and bicycle riding--and, for that matter, me--and decided she'd just as soon see a comedy performance she's lukewarm about as sit around in the B&B while I see it. The weather's going to be cool and cloudy--just the way I like it. Details upon our return.
