New News from B-Town

Q: What's new?

A: Oh, not much. Once you live in B-Town for three weeks, you learn something. It's a slow town. The kind of place where the weather is a real and often invoked topic of conversation. Typical conversation at grocery store (stranger edition):

-Hot today.
-Yep.
-Sposed to be cooler tomorrow though.
-That right?
-Yep.
-Oh.

This may sound boring. It's not. Weather patterns can be quite fun.

Q: So, how's the weather?

A: Actually, quite pleasant. It cooled down quite a bit, which means one can cover one's self with a sheet at night without feeling as if one is swimming in an ocean of night sweat.

Q: That right?

A: Yep.

Q: And the jobs, how are they?

A: Amanda loves her's; it's fantastic. Andrew has begun "The Search."

Q: How about cooking, how's that coming along?

A: Now there's a fun topic of conversation! As it turns out, Andrew is quite the little cook. Why, just last night he prepared a tasty Tuscan Zucchini Pie, and the night before that, Morrocan Fava Bean Puree with homemade bread!

Q: He needs a job, doesn't he.

A: Yes!

Q: Have you seen any wild life yet?

A: Yes! A rare Idaho Dragon. It looked like this:
