West Linn Days

Day 2 at the new house was FAR better than the first. I caught up on lots of address changing and checked on my money situation. My student loan was approved and disbursement will be next week. Gavin the gabber took a day off from his telephoning, and I finally got out for a short bike ride to the nearest grocery store where I opened a bank account at Wells Fargo. The lady who helped me set up my account knows a guy who works on Toyotas, so she'll call me with info on him at some point. I also stopped in on a couple brothers that run a computer repair shop, and we talked politics for at least an hour. They also told me that the snow line here is never lower than 500 feet, and my house is about 200 feet above sea level. I didn't make it all the way up the hill to the fufu upscale yoga studio. BIG hill. And my tires were nearly flat on my bike. So I came back down the hill slowwwwwly to air up my tires. Everything sealable among my possessions is suctioned from the transition from 7,000 feet to sea level.
