Saturday - Hot.
Went to yard sales with R&S, then Miso Sushi afterwards.
I wasn't actually feeling all that well in the morning, and the afternoon
was miserable, between the jaw hurting again and massive intestinal
Somebody has been eating the cat food I've been putting out.
Almost certainly Zeno-II, but I haven't actually seen it. Could be
squirrels or another cat...
Friday - Hot and humid.
Looks like my brother is buying a place in Carson City. Which suggests we'll
be selling the house in Martinez soon. I'll have to check on the
status of all that at some point.
Book #32 was Young
Man's War, by Rod Walker. It was sort of an alien
invasion/zombie/survivalist story, well enough done but rather short.

personally, but she sounds like quite a character...
Afterwards went to Lee Esther's in Palmdale and ordered some nice

Tuesday - Hot and humid. Had a real

done in Power's wondrously strange style of realistic fantasy...
Sunday - Hot.
Did some shopping in the morning, and various non-hand related chores around
