Rock pile

Here’s a teeny little man-made pile of rocks right in the middle of a whole bunch of big rocks. Plus, some added bonus running water! See if you can spot the rock pile there, Loyal Readers. Great Art courtesy of the exclusive iPhone-cam, taken during our visit to Zion and Bryce National Parks in September of this year, and part of my famous Vacation series.

Pretty good day. Went to the automotive upholstery shop for about the fifth time today. They still don’t have the right material. He called another supplier while I was there, but the right guy wasn’t there. So he sent me back home yet again. On the positive side, he’s knocking forty bucks off of the price. If and when he eventually does the work, that is.

LRN4 is doing okay today. Her infection doesn’t seem to have started healing yet. Antibiotics take time to work. We just need them to start working Real Soon Now. She needs to start healing up right now. Her fever has been kind of bouncing up and down all day, going along with some chills. Hold on a second, I’ll check it right now.

I’m back. It’s not good – 102.8 degrees. I’m calling the doctor tomorrow morning. If she needs to be in the hospital for a few days to get the infection under control, we really need to get that going now. We’re still scheduled to fly to Houston late Sunday night. It won’t work all that well for me to go by myself.

Did a little bit of work on the app for my brother today. I think we have it pretty much buttoned up and ready to submit to Apple. He’s taking a little time to test the actually functionality – it would be really embarrassing for him to release a cool little tool for people in his industry, only to have them find out it doesn’t work right. That goes from cool to very damaging, reputation-wise. So he’s running some test cases. After that, I think we’ll submit it. It’s been fun working on it.

Now I need to update my business website to kind of split it into three different parts – tools for forensic medical people, tools for teachers, and freelance iOS/Android development. I’ve been looking at options and I just need to dig in and get it done. I feel like I’m trying to do too many things at once, and I’m pretty sure it will come back to bite me.  Maybe one of them will take off and it will be clear where my post-Lockheed career is going. Or maybe not.

We just learned that our California doctor’s father died last week. Very sorry to hear that. We spend so much time with these people that they really start to feel like family. Our doctor is a young guy, so I wonder if it was an expected thing. We’ll probably never find out, which is okay.

And it’s past bedtime (again), so I’ll leave my Loyal Readers with this shocking food violence news: Samurai sword-wielding, knife-throwing shrimp attack!

See you tomorrow.

    I think your brother’s app looks very professional.
