We’re vacationing up in Yellowstone and Grand Teton this week. The food is nothing special: ham & cheese on homemade sourdough (my wife and mother-in-law have a killer recipe), pasta salad, and some peppers. We’re picnicking here next to Leigh Lake in Grand Teton National Park, staring at the Tetons, actually. And yes, that’s bear spray we had on the table just in case. No, we didn’t try it on our food.

I hope and pray the reader and his family escaped without a Sasquatch assault. “But there’s no such thing as Sasquatch,” naive people say when I try to warn them. Oh ho ho, I say, that’s what they want you to think!
