Dead Dog Cat

#6

While the laundry was percolating, yesterday, I finished reading Jarhead: A Marine's Chronicle of the Gulf War and Other Battles. I found it to be a powerful book, though it bounced around from the author's youth, to his service pre-war, to life afterwards, and to Desert Storm. It's not a pretty tale of honor and glory at all.

With forestcats out taking a quilting course, I kicked around the house, yesterday. I did some laundry, I wandered the Internet for a bit, I finished reading a book. I also put on a Netflix disc: Captain America: The First Avenger. Not too bad, though it played fast and loose with the history of WWII. I also dabbled with streaming. I tried Wild Target, but I didn't care for it, and stopped it not too far into the film. Later, once my wife returned, I played us all the way through the episodes of Stephen Fry in America which was a nice, low-key trip through the States, with some terrific photography, and amusing situations.

And now for the week's work.
