day 15, thirty days of thanks continues

today i am thankful to be here in Nevada visiting my father, whom i haven't seen in 3 years. we stopped for ice cream on the way to his home in Fallon, Nevada (outside of Reno), stopped for an eggnog latte at Starbuck's (he's been reading my blog!), went for a walk around his property so i could take pictures and look for junk (found a really cool vintage nevada license plate that i promptly announced i was taking...)
we just had a nice dinner of fajitas, chitchatted and i even got a crash course on how to do Soduko! (don't think i'll be very good at it!)
