Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

At one of the hospitals, free lunch was given to visitors and staff in honor of the holiday; while chomping on my food, I finished up two more Ospreys:

First was Osprey New Vanguard #181: Yangtze River Gunboats 1900 – 49, which dealt with the odd fact that European powers were permitted to have river craft of their own navies in the inland waters of a sovereign nation. Very strange.

Second was Osprey Campaign #143: Caen 1944: Montgomery’s Break-out Attempt, which dealt with the battles to break out of the Normandy beachhead off the British landing sites through the town of Caen. The landings were important, but being bottled up on the beaches would have been disastrous.

I was out and working just a little later than I'd wanted to be, yesterday, and I would have been home rather early, but I stopped at the grocery store for a restock of one thing or another. My beloved took my advice and napped, so when I got home, I did a few chores, letting her sleep. She looked cute on the couch, with the pack of dogs guarding her.

We had a delicious dinner, prepared by her, once she was up, and then a relaxing evening.

Today, I feel at about 95% of normal, which is the best I've felt in about ten days, so thank goodness. Hopefully, my wife feels similarly improved.
