Well!! that was "Dawson Creek Ripple No 1" and a bit scary at the time but no harm done once he'd figured out reverse in the automatic car and got out of the road. He didn't say that right angles to the road was also tettering on the edge of a fair drop...
Shopping in Grand Praire is challenging. All the large stores are widely separated and you must drive a distance between each one. We were looking for clothes to wear to Caroline's wedding. I finally found a great, silky, many gored skirt - each panel a different fabric as befits a quilter. In orange, brown, red, sage, cream, khaki. I also got two silky singlets, one in red and one in khaki and a white jacket and white belt. I still need shoes and bag and jewellry. Terry didn't get anything that he wanted but intends to try again in Frankfurt.
Home to a lovely salmon dinner and some pinot gris. Anne has got three bottles of pinot gris in for us and the first one is gone.

Dawson Creek Ripple No 2: Anne has an espresso machine, well she HAD an expresso machine. Its different to any I've used before and it doesn't have an instruction manual, well, not that I've seen. I managed to explode it this morning - glass and coffee grounds spread over vast distances and as the house water tank was empty we were unable to clean it up with anything more than paper towels. So Anne says, well, I've never liked it, I'll be able to buy a new one now without feeling guilty!
Dawson Creek Ripple No 3: When Terry parked Anne's car last night in the garage he parked at a slightly different angle than Anne habitually parks. When Anne backed out this morning she turned the wheel as she normally does and backed straight into the side of the garage. We are still debating whose responsibility that one is - I think its probably one all and therefore we are all even - so need never mention any of these little ripples again - ok Robert?
