Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

While I've been taking these online courses, it's been hard to keep up with reading for fun; I've read some books for the class, and for my work, but the kind of reading I normally do for amusement has been severely truncated. However, yesterday I managed to finish three books in short order.

First was The Martian Chronicles, a masterpiece by Ray Bradbury, read for the Fantasy and Science Fiction Literature class. I had read it in elementary school not long after I'd read everything by Heinlein the school library had, but I can't say that I understood what I was reading. I'll be writing my essay for this one probably tomorrow.

Second was Osprey Combat Aircraft #42: B-29 Superfortress Units of the Korean War, which I didn't find all that interesting.

Then, I finished on my cell phone, reading The Tragedy of Pudd’nhead Wilson by Mark Twain, a tale of exchange of a slave child for the owners' child. A bit uncomfortable by the standards of today.

I've been fairly busy in the office, while the hospitals and nursing homes have been sparse in patients. Yesterday was a case in point. Today, I have some to do, but not as much as usual.

Over the last few nights, we watched Eureka season five, disc one...eerie and uncomfortable... I've also decided to stop watching Agatha Christie's Poirot via Netflix streaming, as the enjoyment that I initially got from the settings has palled.

Last evening we had dinner at the Archers, very delicious meal, and afterwards, Leah, Bridget and Kathy all practiced the Rosh Hashana melodies for tonight's services. I'm sure that they'll do a fine job.

Dungeonmaster tonight, opening a new season. New entry fees at the box office...
