I've been on a couple of planes (I love flying), hung out at a foundry, and been for a ride on a tourist train. I love the train trip, but it's the people that make it fun. It's so nice to be out of my bureaucratic world and into this world where people make things, do tangible things, rather than deal in paper and ideas.
I had dinner (and drank far too much) with some funny Aussie colleagues.
Came home in time to farewell a fine woman who died too soon, of cancer. RIP Scottie, I'll make sure C and I are at our graduation ceremony at the end of the year, and we'll think of you insisting we get on with the study, every Thursday. We'll aim for the distinctions you encouraged.
I pad around this house that is mine, yet is not mine, trying to figure out how to live this new life.
I'm sitting here a lot
I gave up trying to figure out the can opener. I bought a new one.
