Who could that be knocking on my door at this hour but MI5?

It seems to be British night on American Cable television, and on PBS. Our local PBS station ran a Masterpiece (grossly overstated in this instance) Theatre re-run of a sentimental melodrama called "Bertie and Elizabeth," which is one of those collections of snippets of fictive moments in the lives of rather dull real people. To goose it up with a bit of drama, a great deal of it was about (again!) the affair of David Windsor and Wallis Simpson.

Summery Day, Dull Post

This is one of those days when it would be nice to have a pool to just float around in. There is a public pool in town, but it is full of screaming kids. Some places are not suitable for relaxation. I'll make do with the shade in the front yard.

I haven't had time to go out walking for a couple of days, and I hope my back doesn't get too stiff from the lack of proper exercise. I've been doing things around the house and yard, but those things don't help. Sometimes they make it worse. But at least everything is fairly well cleaned up, now.

Brief Poll

What kinds of birds do I not want nesting in my yard?

Blue Jays

I had coffee today. I think I had too much. I can't concentrate.

LiveJournal is behaving very badly. Very badly indeed.

The edit function seems to be weirded out about something.

Now I have two copies of a post.

The one without the poll is supposed to be gone.

Pretend it isn't there.

After much putzing about, gone!
