My travels were followed and "like"d

Just before I drove away, Evalina stepped to the window of Metro Cafe to say hello and welcome back. She had followed my travels online and had made a few "likes" @evilgergilevich and commented too.

One more before we leave Daylight Savings Time behind

When she arrived, she found the FAA closed down as part of the government shutdown. The House of Representatives had prevented her from taking her test.
