10:30 – Winter is forecast to arrive here Friday, with highs in the low 20’s (~ -5C), lows in the single digits (~ -15C), and some snow/ice. I’m actually kind of looking forward to it.

Frances and Al spent the weekend up here to celebrate Barbara’s birthday. Yesterday was a pretty miserable day weather-wise, so they decided instead of driving home through the mess yesterday afternoon to stay overnight and head back today. Colin will probably be maniacal today with them gone. He loves having overnight visitors, which means more people to pester to play with him and more people to beg human food from.

Sometimes Walmart.com really pisses me off. I got a delivery from them the other day. Among the items I ordered were:

Rumford Premium Aluminum-Free Baking Powder, 10 oz 4 $2.09 $8.36
HERSHEY’S Cocoa, Unsweetened, Pack of 3, 16.0 OZ 1 $6.81 $6.81

What they actually shipped to me was four 8.1 oz cans of the baking powder and one 16 oz can of the cocoa. This is not the first time this has happened, and every time they make a shipping error it’s in their favor. I’ve made hundreds of orders from Amazon, and they have never shipped less than I ordered.
