I've decided that after going a few days without smoking anything, starting back up with a cigar called 'PSyKo Seven' was probably not the smartest way to ease back into things.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

I'm back.
How was the food?

Not that I care, of course.
Dishes that we loved last year were meh this year (e.g. the loaded mac and cheese - half the serving size and not as well seasoned). Last year we did several seminars, but we skipped all but two of them this year so we could hit all the food kiosks in the passport. Five days and thirty-nine food stands later, there was much rejoicing. These were my favorites in no particular order (and where we got them):

Coastal Eats - Lump Crab Cake
Chocolate Studio - Liquid Nitro Chocolate-Almond Truffle
Australia - Grilled Sweet and Spicy Bush Berry Shrimp (even better because it was so spicy that nobody else (other than my wife, who doesn't like shrimp) would touch them. I got them ALL!!!
Hawaii- Teriyaki-glazed SPAM Hash
Greece - Taste of Greece
Morocco - Spicy Hummus Fries
France - Warm Goat Cheese Pudding with Spinach
Canada - Filet Mignon

There's a leek on the kitchen counter. Every time I walk buy I want to tell someone to take the leek somewhere.

By chance, are you of Welsh blood?

I peseech you heartily, scurvy, lousy knave, at my desires, and my requests, and my petitions, to eat, look you, this leek. Because, look you, you do not love it, nor your affections and your appetites and your digestions does not agree with it, I would desire you to eat it.

There's an outfitter that guides rafters on what will soon be my home river in Colorado that stations a photographer in the canyon to capture action shots of the rafts. Then they put the film (or memory card now I suppose) in a custom back pack on a homing pigeon that flies it back to their store so they can have the photographs ready to sell when the rafters arrive back in town.

The Poudre. The outfitters shop is on the very north end of FC. The city seems to be spending a lot of money to spruce that end of town up. Like many guides and river runners, this place employs mostly long-haired stinky hippies. They live in tents and abandoned buses out back and I s'pect there's a party every night. Not a bad way to spend a summer if yer a 20-something river rat. My kids have gone out with them a few times, but it's not really my cup of tea.

I was sent into the store for milk, but returned with five very nice honey crisp apples as well. I just couldn't resist.
