So what does a guy do when his wife is away? (Carol and her daughter, Catherine, went to Barrie yesterday to visit Catherine’s daughter. Her daughter, Bailei, is two-thirds of the way thru a 3-week cadet camping expedition.) I know what you are thinking…..camera……binoculars…….trail walking. WRONG!!!!!!!!! Instead, I stayed put. Buried my nose in my book. (I’m reading a story about Gary Gilmore. He was convicted of murder in Utah back in the 70’s and executed for his crimes. At the time, it had been 10 years since anyone had been executed in the states. Gilmore accepted the sentence and wanted it carried out as scheduled without any delays. But politics got involved and there was a stay of execution. This did not go over very well with Gilmore — an interesting story written by Norman Mailer) Listened to WCMU public radio streaming over the internet. And worked on my gardens, weeding and playing in the dirt.
A very productive weekend. Back to work at the plant tomorrow night.
