Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

Work gets me out of the house much earlier most days, so having a chance to simply sit and formulate posts is something that I have less time to do. Thus, these weekend catch-up posts...

We've recently rescued a beagle who we've called Sleepy; older dog who ended up pretty sick with pneumonia. She's recovered nicely. She's intended for the Luebke boys up north, unless they don't get on with her, then I guess she stays here. She's got a few more weeks before she will go up their with forestcats to test the household. In the meantime, she's been a source of amusement.

In what might vaguely be called an adventure, after going out for dinner last night, we found ourselves by Ayala Park in Chino, where the mobile Vietnam War Memorial has apparently set up for the Independence Day weekend. We walked along the simulated wall as the sun set. A very touching display. IIRC, Chino does their fireworks tonight at that same park. Fitting.

I read fewer books this week than the last couple, as my workload increases.

First was Preacher: Book Four rapidly followed by Preacher: Book Five, the graphic novels of the comic series that's turned into a TV show recently. There's one more book to go in this saga.

Then, Osprey Men-At-Arms #15: Foot Grenadiers of the Imperial Guard, a lot of detail about these French soldiers in the Napoleonic Wars. Unfortunately, I didn't find this particular one all that engaging. Too bad...
