Janto, I hope this fits the bill. I wrote it up in the Foothills.

“Completely? I don’t believe it. I’ve got places to go, people to see.” The man pounded on the counter and with his fist and the desk clerk looked more annoyed than frightened.

“Yes, sir, an avalanche has closed the road. It will be at least a day, possibly two before it will be cleared enough for safe travel.” The desk clerk repeated himself yet again.

“What about unsafe? I’d help him travel unsafely.” Napoleon murmured, his eyes never leaving their traveling companions. Illya didn’t bother to hide his smirk.

“I heard dog sleigh is the new trend.” He flipped the page of the book he wasn’t reading. “At least we don’t have to worry about the THRUSH agent skipping town.”

“Unless he favors the freeze dried approach, I fear he is as stuck as we.”

Close to the entry a woman sat, looking small in her sweater. Two children sat nearby, arguing and bickering, pausing in their shouting only long enough to hit one another.

“Knock it off.” The man, their father, yelled. “Gladys, make your children behave.”

“Wouldn’t they also be partially his responsibility?” Illya asked. Illya turned another page of his book.

“Well, if you are being old fashioned about it, that’s a safe assumption.” Napoleon sighed. “Did you ever fight like that with your brothers and sisters?”

Day 17 - a family

Hmmm, I think it has to be the family from My Neighbor, Totoro. While their mother is recovering in the hospital (we think she had TB), the family moves closer and start on a huge adventure. The love and, more importantly. the respect that the father has for his children is so huge. I can't even imagine how tired and scared he must be, yet he is never too busy to share a moment with his children.

A colorful quiz

Do You Accurately See Everyday Colors?

You are in the 1% of the population who can see all of the colors across the spectrum. You have an eye for beauty and see colors in all their intensity and richness much like Picasso and Matisse. You have a unique sense of perception that is different from other people.

I think they are pouring it on a little thick here because the answers seemed pretty straight forward to me. Of course, I was the paint mixer in the scene shop and did a good job of being able to match colors.

How did you do?
