We flew out of Vegas at about 6 o'clock Friday. I'd never taken a laptop though security So the TSA was a little peeved that I left it in the case. But they were very professional about it. Just took it out, checked it for explosives, x-rayed the case, and beat the crap out of me. Well okay the last is a bit of an exaggeration. Okay a lot of exaggeration! We landed in Spokane which is a nice little airport. Mark had left us his car in the parking lot, so we drove that to Post Falls. I was surprised at how close that was. Coeur d'Alene on one side and Spokane on the other.

The temperature here in Idaho is only nine degrees cooler than the temperature in Overton! According to the long range forecast it will drop down to normal (low 80's or high 70's) next Monday--after we leave! Yesterday Mark and I went to Wal-Mart and saw a few A/C units on the shelf and I thought surely we could find better units somewhere else. Nope--sold out. When we went back to Wal-Mart and sure enough they were all sold out. So we're dying here. It was nice to go to church today. Three hours of air conditioning! It's supposed to slowly cool off over the next week but won't be bearable until just before we leave. We did buy a fan. I put it in the window last night and it actually got cold for a short time early in the morning. Mark has his Dad's van but the (you could see this coming, huh?) A/C is out. We tried to fix it but it looks like the compressor.

We just ran a neighbor boy off who was peeking in the window. Valery went ballistic on him. Another neighbor just peeked in and wanted to play with the girls, but Valery told her it was Sunday and the girls couldn't play.
