But not me. I am not out on the range or tables getting soaked. Of course, it was not raining when they left this morning before 0800 packed like sardines into the blue bus to bounce over back roads on their way to the day’s adventure.
Instead I hung out, killing off a mandatory on-line course that was reputed to take 2 hours, max. Not in this lifetime. Almost six hours later, I have my certificate and a list three pages long of all the inacuracies and inconsistencies in the lesson plans. Why am I concerned? Someone brilliant idjut just decided that everyone in MEDCOM is going to have to do this course before the end of July. And it is out of date.
Another military requirement for your training and edification. Sheesh.
The symbol of Grafenwoehr, the Tower rises out of the trees as you exit the training area for the civilized area of the military installation. The library sign proudly mentions their former location in the Tower. The architectural style is typical for the region with stucco and external dark wooden beams, carefully replicated on the major buildings across the rest of the post.
I am also a knitting toy
nut collector. I like cases for dp needles that safely store a good quanity while protecting the tips. This particular one came from the Timbertops folks. I obtained it several years ago when they had a booth at the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival.
I also have three that match this lovely little needle case that I purchased in an Oslo Husfliden on my last trip.
Even tho the site is only in Norwegian – if you follow the links for garn (yarn) the gauges for Rauma and the other yarns that they stock are posted. The Butikker tab lists a number of their stores across Norway, making it a good starting point if you are looking for traditional patterns or yarn on a visit. And then there are all the supplies for Bunad (traditional costumes). Lovely pictures those.
James Patternson’s Exile is on the MP3 player and Linda Palmer’s Love is Murder on the car CD player. I am off to listen and knit the second River Bend sock. Picture tomorrow. Promise.
