baboon on its back looking blissfulMore pictures from the zoo. I saw this baboon or a very similar-looking one doing the exact same thing last year. I guess baboons have habits, just like people.

Saturday had the parents coming over after breakfast and doing a few errands. They mailed their presents back to their house, then helped me get rid of a stupid minor plumbing problem that had been there for months. I didn’t know that the @#$%^ing drain plug could be removed, and a bunch of hair and crud had built up in the space between the plug and the drain hole. Then we went to the mall, which was a bit less crowded than I thought it was going to be. Got a new pair of shoes and lunch there.

Then they went back to their hotel to do something or other, and I spent some more time playing “Dragon Age: Origins”. There are a ton of things to do in that game, and it’ll consume as much time as I let it. Well, I’ll have a little free time over the next week to play it. Then we had dinner, mostly turducken leftovers and bread this time. It was pretty good. Coffee and saying goodbye followed. It seems like they just got here, yet they’re leaving on Sunday morning. Anyway, the plan is to spend Sunday morning at the rifle range with Zach, Nacho, and Jason. . . .
