No Cute Bunny Photos

We were so late getting away this morning, and were detained at enough places and made such slow progress that we didn't get to Santa Nella until 7 PM. With the amount of time it would take to get to my office, Lisa wouldn't be able to get out of the Bay Area (i.e. reach Dunnigan on I-5, where she could stop for the night) until well after Midnight. We decided to give up and stop here at Santa Nella. I can dial in to a conference call I have to be in tomorrow morning, then drive to my office and take another call I have tomorrow afternoon, and Lisa will be able to leave from the Bay Area mid-day, in relatively light traffic, and get far north tomorrow evening. I'll just work late tomorrow evening to make the books balance.

After having dinner at Pea Soup Andersen's, we walked down the street to the Holiday Inn Express. As we walked down the street, on a little patch of grass in front of a truck stop, we saw a cute little rabbit nibbling at the grass. He noticed us, but didn't run off as long as we kept our distance. We confirmed that the hotel had a room. I wish we'd done so before eating because they were handing out 10% off coupons at the hotel check-in. Anyway, we walked back to the restaurant and got the van. Turning in on the street where the hotel is, we saw that there were lots of cute bunnies running around the area. But we didn't take any pictures. We're too tired.
