HBO — to Truthseeker & Bob re: The Sunshine

Truthseeker: “For any newly arrived transplants to our area, do yourself a favor today and do not shut yourself in a warm house, get out and experience this day. Drive up to Farragut State Park, go down to Lakeshore Drive, even CDA City Park, in Spokane, try the County Park in Liberty Lake or the Finch Arbortrerium(SP?), but bundle up, get out and experience this facet of North Idaho. (and don’t forget the thermos of cocoa and marshmallows!) Me, I’ve got a secret spot that the dogs and I will head to for a romp in the sunshine. And bob - peace brother, we’ll get back to it later!!”

Bearable Bob: “Oh it’s too early and too Saturday to fight to argue to vex and annoy. Nope, it’s sunny and outside you can take a deep breath and taste the polar sky. You can breathe the bite of the arctic…share the air that whistles over the tundra and down the rockies. It’s sunny and clean and days like today are why July afternoons shine so brightly. They are being polished now and put in the drawer until later. ((((Pacific Northwest))))
