Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

Since returning from Portland, I've finished two books, both electronic.

First was Osprey Men-at-Arms #122: Napoleon’s German Allies 5 Hesse, which is another of those miniature figure painting items, but there's a reasonable amount of background hinting at what Central Europe was like, divvied up into small principalities. Better than some others of this same general topic...

Second was Osprey Campaign #11: Kaiserschlacht 1918: The Final German Offensive which dealt with the events late in WWI, as the US forces started to arrive. Generally, WWI isn't the era that most interests me; that tends to be WWII, or ancient eras. This book did do a reasonable job of retaining my interest, though; can't pinpoint why, exactly.

I managed to get through yesterday's work with some efficiency, luckily enough; I had (and will have, most of this week) a lot of house calls, and they burn up time pretty handily. Still, I got home pretty early, and put on the TV.

I dozed through Wallace and Gromit's World of Invention, which had a few items that were of interest, but I think fatigue played a solid part.

Also, somewhere in the last week, I forgot to mention that I'd read a couple of comics. First was Warehouse 13 #5 which was not bad; second was Fairest #2, which was also not bad. I guess I expect more from the latter than the former. OTOH, I'd rather see new episodes of the former than see the latter on TV at all...
