Strange Detail Noticed During Our Annual Quad Listening Session

TSG has a tradition of sorts that we observe on 19 May.  We commemorate Pete's B-day by listening to Quadrophenia from beginning to end wherever we happen to be.  This year was the first time we've ever listened on a computer (with tinny earbuds, certainly a downgrade from for our Koss Pro4AAs!) 

 We noticed that it took a little longer than usual for the album details to come up for CD 2. After a few moments the songs displayed in Japanese!    Disc 1 displayed "normally", so we can only assume that we purchased an inadvertently mixed-up copy from the used "record" store.

Near Disaster At The Breakfast Bar

Word to the wise:
Check to make sure the hot sauce has a "shaker top"  before applying!

Some lodgings have differing definitions of "rustic"!

Good Place To Eat, Considering The Date

One of the few places open on a Sunday morning in Salina, UT.
Unfortunately we had just finished a substantial snack before rolling in to town.

Special B-day bonus content: a quick ride with TSG down the Red Canyon Bike Path. Somewhat less scenic than the major attraction (Bryce) just down the road, Red Canyon has 70%  fewer oblivious international tourists to dodge.  That's a plus in our book.  This footage was taken after TSG took an embarrassing minor spill just yards away from the Visitor Center.  Boosting the embarrassment factor somewhat was our discussion just a few minutes earlier at the information desk. Talking about what kind of rides were available, TSG informed the Ranger that we had been riding bikes "for over 50 years!"
