No response. The bowling alley was closed til noon so I walked. There was a small bookstore with a book about Buster Keaton in the window. That was enough to get me inside. It was a cute store with a lot of old books.
Can I help you?
Yes, I would love to see that Buster Keaton book in the display window.
Would you also like the Harold Lloyd book?
I missed that! Hell yes! In fact, I will just take them.
I walked out smiling, posted a photo of my find on the social medias and checked for a response.
New text to Chantel: I'm going bowling.
I can be there in about an hour.
I walked over to the bowling alley and sat down in the restaurant to eat. Half an hour later she shows up.
We eat. I show her Scott's comment about Powell's.
Fuck bowling, as she takes a fry from my plate, we're going to Powell's. Then I am showing you my Portland.
Then she handed me a jar of mushrooms for the boys in the band.
For their day off.
And that is how the best day of the tour began.
