Then we walked back up the staircase to the parking lot and it made my poor legs hurt. I'm such an out-of-shape wimp. Heh.
And then we drove down to Yachats to The Landmark, which Dad said was the only bar in town but we parked in front of another bar across the street. We got there right when "Dad's" band was supposed to start their set but Dad still had time to hug me before they started. And we sat and drank $4 pints of beer and listened to Dad play the bass. After a bit over an hour they took a break and Dad and his friend came down and sat with us for a couple of minutes. 'Twas nice to talk to him. I think he really is sorry he and I didn't talk for so long. I took off my glasses to clean them and he reached out and touched my cheek and said "isn't she just so cute? You're a lucky guy, Cory." It was sweet.
And then I drove us home, after Dad went back up on stage. They were playing until 1am and we didn't want to stick around that long. So Cory slept part of the way while I drove, and we got home at midnight and went to bed. It was really nice to be in bed, I tell ya. Except for this morning when Remmy got off her corner and it was covered in sand.
And now Cory's at work and I'm here again. I'm going to go grocery shopping, and that's going to be so much fun. Whoopee.
