I have the day off today, so I'm going to go hiking with my music buddy mike around a local reservoir. Maybe we'll get a little jamming in as well. What are you up to on this sunny and warm (but not oppressively hot) Thursday?

It's bath day for the dogs. Blue escaped the tub and got water everywhere. Luckily, he was the last dog to bathe. As I was cleaning up water and soap, I saw that the small book/towel cabinet was wet. It's used to store "reading material" for time spent in the restroom. I was cleaning it up and ran across a reproduction of the Fall 1900 Sears, Roebuck and Company mail order catalogue. I had forgotten that I had it. You could buy just about anything from that catalogue. Scary stuff. Medical devices. Questionable medical devices. Horrific medical devices. I'm still paging through it but I smell fodder for new discussions. 72 and sunny here today.

I wonder how valuable that catalog is!

@TheHorse The reproduction was published in 1970. I doubt it holds much value but I've never looked. You would be shocked at what any customer could order in 1900. A quick check shows this book selling as low as 5 bucks. I paid a nickle for it twenty years ago.

Confirmed by other reporters in the field in Florida. Did the rain cool things down?

@RasmaSandra Do you often get Summer rains in the afternoons? That's how I remember Ft. Myers Beach.

It's in the low 80s here. That's a bit hot for me. I went to get my hair done and then did some shopping. Resulted in lots of walking. Tired me out. But at least I was out of the house, which was a good change of scene.

Glad you got your hair done. If it's done, does that mean you never have to go back to that pace again?

@TheHorse I had to color my roots. Since I was already there I got a haircut and a blowout. I have to go there in a month or month-and-a-half to color the roots again. Man, it's expensive. $120 for roots, cut, and blowout. Not counting tip.

Here in Florida it was boiling, but since we went shopping today, not so bad. When we got home, it stormed. Chilly hid under the bed, but came out when George or I came into the room. I watched a little t.v. with him, to provide a distraction while working here. So, that's my day so far.

I am removing myself from the world around me with my headphones on and youtube videos playing on my second monitor screen.

Sounds good. I planted some corn. I have to remember to bring some to the preschool tomorrow.

@wolfgirl569 Is Monsanto paying degenerates to buy up all of the corn seeds out there? I have never had this happen before.

Not too long ago we were at one of our local parks . . . 2 guys were jamming - Celtic music - sounded pretty cool with the mountain acoustics. I hiked Costco earlier!

That would be pretty to hear. I like Celtic music. A lot.

@TheHorse To hear it outdoors in open space, amongst the hills was quite lovely!

@much2say To hear it anywhere makes me happy. To hear it in that environment would make me extra happy.

I did nothing at all yesterday. I just wanted to be sure that my husband rested, I avoided to make noises, he looks better today.

Glad to hear that. Are you pampering him a bit? And preparing heart-healthy meals?

I woke up in Japan this morning. It was really strange because I know exactly how I got here. My friend, Dr. Jill, asked me if I wanted to go to Tokyo and I said, "Sure." And here I am.

@TheHorse I bet she can. She has a pretty nice plane that seems to be able to go most anywhere.
