A thorough homebody
Anybody miss me on the net? I'm on a vacation week -- fortunately not a furlough, thins are tough enough in the newspaper business. We were planning to go to Las Vegas for FreedomFest but pain and a necessary trip to the dentist screwed up those plans. So Jen and I have mostly been puttering round outside -- moving pots and plants, rearranging deck chairs, keeping the pool clear and spending time in it, transplanting a few flowers, building a couple of things. The yard is certainly nicer for it, but it's taken all the daylight hours and I haven't even felt like logging on at night until now. Either it's a very good vacation or I'm losing a teeny bit of my obsession with the news -- one newscast a day seems to suffice.
