From the Last Straw Department: We hadn't eaten in one of our former favorite restaurants in over a year because we had been so disappointed the previous two times. We decided to give them one more try last night. Three strikes, they're out. Mine was pretty mediocre and fairly expensive. Patsy's was a little more than fairly expensive and inedible. She was hungry when we left. Unforgivable.
From the Where The Hell is The Rain When You Want It Department: I tied up the tomato bushes and got in a round of fertilizer last Saturday in anticipation of rain last weekend. It has not rained here since I did that. Somewhere, someone with a leaky roof is wishing they had my power.
From the Next Project Up Department: Clean up the garage and make room to park the tractor inside. Long, long overdue. Will probably have to throw away some
of our most prized possessions junk.
From the Fine Line Department: The lawsuits being brought against the NFL by former players are walking a fine line between compensation for injury and gold digging. Not sure when or if the NFL had and withheld information on concussions from the players. IMO, only players playing between the moment that information was known to the NFL and the moment everyone had that information should be eligible for compensation. The rest are just guys who didn't prepare for life after their playing days. I'd like to see the NFL and the players help those guys, too, but let's call that what it is. Charity.
From the Tired But Feeling Good Department: Actually got some things done in spite of having to work yesterday. Replaced the battery and a battery terminal in the tractor and got the finish mower attached Friday evening. Got the yard done this evening even without an edger and lawn mower. Will need to replace the lawn mower soon and fix the edger whenever.
From the Marie Is Always Right Department, Internet is Awesome Division: She suggested last week that my problem might be just the card and not the camera. Since then, I have been too
lazy busy to check. That's all it was and the sunset image below from the CrabAppleLane back deck is the result. Thanks, Marie.

About today's QOTD: Anyone know who Guy Cecil is? I'm getting credit for support. If not lifting a finger, reading his email, or contributing a dime to any campaign constitutes support, I'm thinking I might have done more of it over the years.

Robert — Your support has allowed us to go on the air and defend the first of five Democrats Karl Rove is attacking with his $1.2 million smear campaign.

Blog of the day is here.
Quote from said blog: "In The Return, the writers seemed to fake us out, at first making us believe that August W. Booth was Baelfire, Rumpelstiltskin’s son, and then seeming to reveal that he was not. But could the writers have been doing a double fake out? Could August really be Baelfire after all?"
