Omen

Some might call it a bad omen – the van's window crank handle breaking off in the wee small hours just as I was getting set to leave. You know, since I was headed smack into the Mojave Desert and that handle is the closest thing to air conditioning that I own. My resolve to roll held firm though, and I quickly MacGyvered a temporary replacement using a fine specimen from Q's vast collection of vice grips... 


Problem solved for now. As has the problem of sweltering heat, traffic, and all-around megacity vibe...


Because there just aren't many problems in this world that a decent set of vice grips and a well-thinned ponderosa forest can't fix.
