I spent five days in Boise last week, celebrating my 50th birthday with my daughters. I had wonderful steak at Longhorn Steakhouse, a short hike (from the parking lot, not the bottom) up to Table Rock, overlooking Boise, some time in Ann Morrison Park with my dog, Scout, and a tour of the Old Idaho Penitentiary. (Fascinating history, by the way. I recommend the tour! And I tried to look very mean in my mug shot — bottom, left). I also lost my phone at a shall-not-be-named frozen yogurt store and, let me tell you, it’s easy to realize when something like this happens that you are not in Idaho County anymore. My oldest, Avery, called twice asking the employees to look for it. They didn’t. It took a drive back there and her looking to locate it. Thank goodness for her perseverance. It was also an eye opener, once again, that no Super 8 is like Grangeville’s Super 8. Seriously, our town has the nicest, cleanest, best Super 8 I have ever laid eyes on. We got Hailey all moved in, she got a job, and now it’s back to business in Grangeville. A pedicure, birthday treats from my co-workers and it’s off and running in this 50th year of my life, and on to start my 24th year at the Free Press.
