My friend Jeff got off OK this morning, apparently. At least he's still not in the basement. (Darned ropes. I knew I should have used chains.) I heard that he scared the bejeezus out of Ericka's helper this morning, who was unaware we had a house guest. (Heck, we didn't know we had a house guest until last night.) But he turned on his natural charm and was later reported to be "a very nice young man."
I still need to get my taxes done. Grump.
