Dead Dog Cat

And a couple more:

First was These Are the Voyages: TOS: Season Three, the latest volume of this heavily-researched series discussing the nuts and bolts of the production of the original Star Trek television series. It goes deeply into the archives of memos and notes to give a different take on what was going on at Paramount. Interesting.

Then, Osprey Weapon #40: The Gatling Gun which goes into detail on the development and use of this weapon. Slightly more technical than I was looking for, and less documentation about its use in combat than I would have liked. Not bad overall.

Sunday was a busy day. I had cooking to do in preparation for Thanksgiving. I have a recipe for spiced pecans that I make up; I usually shoot for doing two pounds, but my wife usually tries to force me to do four. This year she was pressing for six, but I made four. It takes hours, with multiple steps. They're pretty tasty.

In addition, we sat shiva with my friend and his family Sunday night. It was very good to sit and chat with him and other friends and aquaintances into the evening. It just doesn't happen much anymore.

In other news, Dungeonmaster is going on this weekend, huzzah!
