Mom off to Albuquerque late this morning after a three day visit. Had a nice time kicking around together. Envy her drive home. New Mexico beautiful this time of year. 

Not a bad day here, either. Beautiful light, cool temps, and a light breeze. Managed a couple of hours of revisions, then off to the lumber yard to pick up material for a coffin. New prop for the halloween graveyard tableau. Made the styrofoam template when we got home. Looks like it'll work.

New shoulder bag arrived to day from Buffalo Jackson. Cooler than my old Orvis bag in some ways, but weaker in others. Sorry to have to move on. The old satchel had a lot of heart, but it took its hits over twenty years and eventually wore out. Will miss it.

Tired. Never made it to the gym today. Tomorrow.
