BUSY BUSY BUSY
- Heading to Richland, WA for back x-ray and check-up with neurologist today
- Going to Portland to see Wilco tomorrow, coming back on Thursday
- Going camping on Imnaha River Friday through Sunday
- Going to work Monday, getting ready for school year
- Going to Portland again on Sunday of Labor Day weekend to see Spamalot
Adding to all of this is that one of our two computers has crashed, and it's the one with all the photo software, printer and other things installed.
This past Saturday we took yet another trip to Portland and got ourselves a nice spotting scope for birdwatching. We will be learning to use it during the coming weeks as we save some money for a camera mount so we can (hopefully) use the set-up to take some professional quality pictures of wildlife.
I will have a camera along throughout much of the above, so maybe I'll post some pictures soon.
The usual ecstasies/miseries:
Michael Vick may actually have to do some prison time.
General Petraeus will give us the "progress report"... when else... on September 11!
The ugly specter of a Fred Thompson presidency continues to rear its ghastly head. He is active in Iowa right now, even though he hasn't declared his candidacy.
Obama would like to ease some of the Bush restrictions on Cuba to allow Cuban-American families to see each other more often and for those in America to send more money to families in Cuba.
Bloomberg says he isn't running for president but would like to "influence the dialogue".
And best or worst, depending on how you choose to look at it: 517 days left. I look at it this way... at least that number continues to decrease!
