Cats have their own priorities, and so do we--starting with Gov. Dean!Off to Sandy Eggo in the AM; first time I am to be billeted at a pet hotel (that permits humans). [Hotel Indigo, Gaslamp District].On eBay I scored an interesting slide rule for my small collection. [That's my share of what I am earning in San Diego, I figure.] One of the major old German makes [Faber Castell], construction and markings seem to indicate early 1950's manufacture [I will be able to ascertain the date when I get it--from Lima, Peru--from the serial number]. The particular basic design was very popular outside the U.S., and this has something quite unusual--a built-in addiator. That's a sort of very compact adding machine operated with a stylus:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AddiatorTTFN

Back safely from an enjoyable trip. More details as I catch up.
Bill, nice to have you back.Alan, you dog you, enjoy yourself. Adventures of all varieties are good, eh? Made it rain yesterday, lol! Watered Cooter's garden. Just as I was finishing, the thunder started rolling. Made it home just in time. And finally, we got a somewhat decent rain instead of just a dust settler.And I got my first harvest: two zucchini. Lots of tiny cukes (looks like they're gonna be picklers; and LOTS of pumpkins.
Well howdy all!Alan...good response about the dog! LOL!!!Welcome home, Bill. Can't wait to hear more.puddle...I've been watering the gardens all week, but we still haven't had more than a trace of rain. We again have a 60% chance tomorrow. I'll believe it when I see it. Yesterday our storms went both south of us and north of us! I thought of you!
I think it has to be hand watering to work: dipping into a bucket with a pitcher and carrying it to each plant. . . .
The baby cats meet their new vet in the morning.Wish 'em luck!
Hi, Cat. And bye. I'm about ready for bed.
Still in catch-up mode. Will just say that while Alaska -- Juneau and Skagway especially -- were cooler than I would have preferred, it was better than this stifling heat.Glad to be back. Still hoping to catch up on the news.
