While I was there tonight, I came across a post which mentioned a store which was across the street from my intermediate school. I suddenly felt one of those mushy nostalgic journal entries coming on, so I got out of there. Still, the image of the place is stuck in my mind now, so I'll probably end up writing about it soon. Luckily, there isn't enough time tonight. You are spared, for a while.
I do want to post a couple of pictures, though. So far, none of my picture posts have been replaced by a little red "x", so I am compelled to further test my bandwidth allowance by posting two pictures at once. These were taken a couple of weeks ago, in a field about half a mile from my house. This is not the best time of year to be taking pictures in this particular location in the late afternoon, because the sun is low and the best views are to the southwest. Thus, there is lens flare (filters are not available for point-and-shoot cameras, as far as I know.) Since I took the pictures on a bright, cloudy day when a rainstorm was ending, I just pretend that the lens flare is a rainbow. Again, cut because of their size.

Now, there is a blue-grey twilight heralding dawn. I think we may be in for another grey day. Might we hope for just a little more rain? I don't know. I'm going to be sleeping through most of it, anyway.
