Not much posting of late, because El Jefe has been preoccupied with the usual round of work and secret police reports (his agents in Korea have been most active -- seeing that US beef doesn't get shipped away from the tables of El Jefe). Besides the usual, some unusual happenings -- shipping the Heir off to camp, visiting the National Museum of the Pacific War in Fredericksburg, Texas, and getting a new car. More on the trip to Fredricksburg later.
In any case, El Jefe got his new car, a dark, almost midnight blue Lexus ES-350 yesterday, and it is most spiffy. As usual, El Jefe appointed SWMBO the Imperial Plenipotentiary for Car Negotiations, took plenty of Pepto-Bismol and watched as she obtained the typical results (it's almost unfair to the car salesmen). Anyway, SWMBO the negotiator ensured that El Jefe's Lexus has every gizmo possible, and a few that really aren't. The car comes with instruction books that look like an encyclopedia. El Jefe has been much more interested in the car, and in catching up with work, than blogging, but he promises to rectify this soon.
