We have a houseguest here from Great Britain. I haven't had much time to spend with her, due to work constraints.

On the other hand, various things are happening to the house. For example, we've pulled out two pet-damaged pieces of furniture; we've had three pet-damaged screens repaired; we've replaced some moulding surrounding a door that was pet-damaged (are you detecting a theme here?); Stouty came by and finished off a pair of stumps! It all looks much better.

Yesterday was our beagle's birthday. In honor of this, brushette and corveys went to the dog-o-mat, both for a shampoo, and the latter for a shave. They both look fantastic. I don't expect the beagle to stay clean for long.

On another tack, I continue to work my way through a pile of comics gathered over months. I caught up with Battlestar Galactica #8, 9 and Annual. Not so good. Then there's Bushido: The Way of the Warrior #1, 2. This tale is a bit much...a Portugese kid gets shipwrecked in Japan when his vessel is attacked by vampires, and after he gets rescued and raised by a daimyo as a spare son and trained as a samurai, though as a gaijin he'll never BE a samurai, the vampires attack the Shogun and... C'mon! I'll probably finish reading this but I don't expect much from it.

Last night after finishing up some chores, while my wife and our guest went to experience a drive-in theater, I watched The Road via Netflix streaming. Depressing. Post-apocalyptic, though they never really say what the cause of the breakdown was. I guess the point was that the director wanted to make was that people are vile and evil. Not a pleasant film.
