Good News, Bad News

The evening clouds have the color of orange sherbet. That makes them the very best part of today. I had a big fight with the Internet. It avoided me for hours. I haven't been able to get my e-mail. Sluggo took the Internet's side, crashing repeatedly. Finally, I got Juno (my backup ISP) to work, so here I am, for a moment at least. Aside from the clouds, the other good part of the day is that thuggish neighbor's car came home piggyback on a truck, its front end all smashed, so I am enjoying a moment of schadenfreude. The way he drives, it was inevitable. I just hope he didn't smash it by running into a deer.

But the very worst news of the day is that mrmustard has announced his plans to leave us. Here it is, only the middle of August, and September is already ruined.

I'm going to go make some iced tea, and dwell on happy thoughts. I'll be back later, if the Internet decides to stop fighting with me and gives me my mail.
