after i delivered the latest cd's to client P i came back home to get ready for my adirondack weekend. by 6pm i went over to dan's place. i had about 200 songs on a disc that he transferred onto his ipod for our listening pleasure. we left around 7pm, making a quick stop at the beacon street star market to get some food (including a cheesecake). the traffic flow was surprisingly smooth as we made the almost 4 hour drive to upper new york, to saratoga springs, where john's parents lived. since we were ahead of schedule and feeling a bit hungry, we tried to find a roadside diner but ended up just going to a mcdonalds to get some dinner. we got to john's parents' place by 11pm and john arrived soon afterwards. john slept in the living room, dan had the study, while i lucked out with the guest bedroom. it was nice being in a home with heat for a change. after a shower i went to bed.
