It's late, so this will be short. We're having a great week here in Seattle, and I'll fill you in on the details later. R. got sick Tuesday evening and into Wednesday, so J. and I ended up going to the Aquasox game without the ladies, but other than that things have been good.

One bit of advice, though. Never, ever buy a Ford Freestar. We got one as a rental from Hertz, and it is quite possibly the worst vehicle I have ever driven. Now, I drive a minivan at home, a Dodge Grand Caravan, so I know that we're not exactly dealing with high performance vehicles here. But compared to the Freestar, the Caravan is a Ferarri. This minivan handles like a brick and misses a lot of the little touches that make minivans a good ride if you have kids to haul around. This is one of the few times I have had a rental I couldn't wait to give back.

The other thing I'm aggrivated about is the fact that the Sox dropped two of three in Kansas City. I'm sorry, but the defending world champions (I still like saying that) should take at least two of three from the Royals, if not sweep them. Things are getting tight with the Yankees again, as the Sox have only a 2 and 1/2 game lead in the division. They are on their longest homestand of the season, so hopefully they can win a bunch of these games.
