Pretty worrying. The entire northern hemisphere on the glob is in a heatwave. For the past few days, we’ve seen temperatures hovering around 40°C. Lytton, BC, has stolen the North American “hot spot” from Nevada. Lytton, unfortunately, is now gone. The fire season has started already. Fire ripped through the town, and 150 people evacuated. No one injured, so they think.
I’m quitting coffee!!! No more!
Actually, I ran out of beans. We’ll see how long it lasts.
I woke up at 3:30am to a fire alarm.
Okay, so it wasn’t a fire alarm but, rather, an alarm clock. It was F‘s. He’d had it for several years but no longer wanted it. It’s one of those folding travel clocks, wind-up, of course. Because I collect old pre-antique things (vintage, you might say), it was a nice addition to my collection of clocks and other such devices. I had no idea I had set it for 3:30am.
If I were a wild animal, I don’t think I’d want to be in an enclosed area. But in Parkbridge, deer come in in the morning and leave at the evening. They spend their days meandering around the park, eating what they can, and sleeping the rest of the time.
I saw this one on the back way home from shopping. We just stood there looking at each other. We, as people, personify various animals. The deer is obviously thinking, “Why is that guy outside of the enclosure? Doesn’t he know the dangers?”
Reversing that, would the deer be personifying (or, rather, deerifying) me? The human is obviously thinking, “It’s too bad that fence is there. I’d like to kill that deer and eat it.”
My new router, the DeWalt 611, is coming. But when? I ordered it on Amazon on Sept. 15, 2020, but it apparently still hasn’t left the gate yet – not yet en route. (En router? Get it? Route(r)?)
