Distant mountain

Here’s a picture of a far-off mountain taking during one of our recent camping trips. Doesn’t it look like part of the scenery from a model railroad? Part of my famous Camping series.

Nice day. It did indeed cool off, as predicted yesterday. It’s just after 9:00 in the evening, and it’s already down to 64 degrees. Big change, and it feels good. We might even need to use our blanket tonight. Predictions are up to the lower- to mid-90’s for the next ten days, with nighttime temperatures down to the upper 50’s. And sunny every day, of course. Zero percent chance of rain. I’ll take that weather anytime.

Lardville is a great place to plan a picnic in the summertime. It simply doesn’t rain. I have no idea where the water comes from in our numerous rivers around here.

Otherwise, situation normal. Work is going just fine – did I mention that my boss is leaving at the end of this month? Probably not. I think (hope, actually) this will be a good thing for me, giving me a chance to manage the group without her help. We’ll see what happens.

The pickup continues to run smoothly. I just need to figure out when to bring it home to detail it. I need to find a weekend when Loyal Reader Number Six, the Official Morrowlife Auto Detailing Services Provider, is available. He’ll be here this weekend, but with Loyal Reader Number Three’s visit, nobody is really sure whether this will be a good time for it. I still have a good 48 hours or so before a final decision needs to be rendered, and I plan to take pretty much all of it.

Apple announced some new iPods and a few new services in the iTunes Store today. They were accompanied by a new version of iTunes, which I downloaded this evening. The jury is still way out on the changes. I’m not a fan of the new Album view yet, but maybe it will grow on me. I’ve never bought any TV shows, so I don’t care that NBC is back and HD TV shows are available. I’ve never bought any of their movies, so I don’t care what’s going on there. I don’t have an iPhone or iPod Touch, so I’m not interested in the changes there. I did turn on Genius mode a few minutes ago. It’s still inspecting my library, so I have no idea whether I’ll like it or not. Initial media reports are not encouraging. I’ll keep you informed, Loyal Readers.

Today’s Morrowlife controversy: What would they have done if he told them he cleaned sewers for a living? My answer: Free plumbing work!

Time for bed yet again. See you tomorrow.
