Even if you leave home early, arriving at work when there is only a rumor of sunlight above the horizon, a farewell luncheon in the middle of the day sort of tears a hole in the schedule.
In case you can’t read the sign – it reads either Alte Feuerwache or De Nico’s (depending). I am not sure of the significance of the naked young man with the frog that stands just on the other side of the front entrance, but he is kind of cute (and the restaurant is Italian without frogs on the menu.)
One of our great SGTs is leaving in a week for Walter Reed.
Catching a picture that doesn’t have name tags is a real challenge. She has a great sense of humor and will be sorely missed in the lab.
Me? This proves that I actually come out of my lair on special occasions. Because the SGM really wanted to try my camera, I turned him lose for a while. The unfortunate result is that I actually was captured in pixels.
Books and Audio Books
Blood Orchid – Stuart Woods – has finished on the CD player and The Big Four by Agatha Christie has now replaced it in the car.
In print – I read Killer Weekend – the new Ridley Pearson thriller from the library. Plus Three is a Crowd by D B Borton. While I can’t say that I really appreciated Cat Caliban as a sleuth, this book was obviously well researched with the plot relating to the past anti-Viet Nam war era being all too real to someone who lived through it.
(and no, no knitting today either)
