Wednesday Midday, July 25

1) Back porch coffee this morning yielded the unwelcome vision of a rat (no, not a squirrel, a rat!) scuttling along the base of the back fence. Faugh! I rose as it turned toward the house, the filthy thing, causing it to make a sharp turn into the big black rat trap box against the fence - from which it kept emerging to see if I was gone! Faugh!

2) Today's Shakespearean insult (from my Daily Shakespearean Insult calendar, a Christmas gift from Oldest Nephew Who Must Not Be Tagged): "There's no trust, no faith, no honesty in men. All perjured, all foresworn, all naught, all dissemblers." - Romeo and Juliet

3) Whoever brought the fried honey cookies from Korea into the office, thank you. I had the second-to-last one in the box, and it was OK.
