I have a furry here to enrich the day and it's sunny. Can't do better than that.
I loved my meeting of colleagues Wednesday both working and not. As always we were bulging out the walls with noise. I called a dear friend so she could hear that cacophony--- but she wasn't there. Her husband answered and I shouted that I just wanted Mary to hear the noise. :-) He told her later that it was pretty impressive or words to that effect. :-) had the best time! Always do.
Meanwhile, as it is sunny (OH..imagine! SUN here!) I will have outside things to do. But to do that, I must get up from the keyboard and get dressed. I must do my little housework and get ready for the day and I must play with the Mistress of the house. She is in there by her tunnel waiting.
Reading again today the mind bursting dragnet the N*S*A has out for us (yes gov guys, I am talking about you. I know you're reading this) it is enough to make you throw out your phones, both kinds. Disconnect the computer and do the following: Tin can and string network to communicate with friends. (Sorry...no long distance). Use a typewriter, and hire your own pony express to deliver. Oh and throw out all the little tags (if you can see them) that manufacturers put on clothes and other durable goods that track where said goods are.
Meanwhile, time to get up and be about doing the business of shopping and camera toting. I will smile at all the cameras watching me as I walk along.
This is a view of my deck with a privacy fence on the street side. Ready for Fall? This picture was taken last Fall.
