I rode to work this morning, with lights on, even!

I was NEARLY SAVAGED just as I was turning into the driveway at work by a TINY LITTLE BARKIE DOG, with an attached leash, that had escaped its owner. I nearly ran the little hairy rat down! The owner apologized profusely, but did not offer cash to assuage my distress.

Speaking of rats... we will get to that in a minute.

I made this panorama on the Macintosh. It's bike related because I'm wearing my Lycra bicycle shorts whilst taking the pictures...

library panorama

I had an eye doctor appointment at one, so I headed home at noon. It was pretty cloudless and warm, but not too bad.

I arrived home to find out there was a dead rat on the back porch. I wonder if the tail-less cat did it? He was sitting there. I assisted in the disposal of the dead rat. My part was to hold up the lid on the garbage can.

I showered and changed clothes. I watched a little television, then headed off walking to the eye doctor. Along the way I checked my appointment card. Of course, it wasn't for today, it's for another day! I returned home and fired up the computer. Yes, it says right there in the reminder, "Appointment this week, not sure if Monday or another day. Verify day." So much for following up on myself.

I DID remember to see how much that Plymouth was going for, since TWO people asked, but I have forgotten the amount. You remember the Plymouth, the one I said reminded me of my aunt's car? My cousin informs me that her car was a different color, year, make, and model. Well!

I drove back to work, and since I have to drive tomorrow, that's another bit of gas wasted.

Ew...about the rat. Still can't get over how different the library looks from when I worked there.

How did you do the panorama view? I've been trying to figure this out for the longest time. Thank you if you can help
