Sehome Sweet Home Again

We enjoyed a pleasant flight on a 757 DEN-SEA yesterday and landed in time to catch the Express Lanes and beat the afternoon rush on I-5 North.

It's always fun to return to our snug home on Sehome Road. Our mailbox was overstuffed with nothing overly important, the most interesting item being a threatening and completely false "collection agency" bill scam from an outfit called North Shore Agency. No, we don't owe FedEx $89.10 and Brian took pleasure early this morning in reporting the fake bill to the police chief of Palatine IL (the p.o. box where the check is to be sent), the FedEx fraud department, and the USPS postal inspectors.

Sad to say, an Internet search reveals complaints about this outfit at least as far back as 2004 as well as a 2007 lawsuit, yet apparently it's still a profitable business.

Today, after a reasonable night's sleep between about 7:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m., it's time to unpack, shop, and refine our cappuccino-making skills.
