Back to the Futile

We're back from a week-long visit to Seattle, city of rain. To be fair, there were days that it wasn't raining, and I did detect a patch or two of blue sky at one point.

Leaving obligatory observations on the weather aside, the week was for business, not pleasure, but with the help of the good friends with whom we were staying, we grabbed it by the throat and wrung a fair quantity of good times out of it. There's nothing quite like cooking shows - both real and dramatic - to raise the spirits.
