I'm still not understanding how including the color of a person's skin in a statement as though that skin color is significant (Why else mention it if it isn't?) isn't racist, because racists are people to whom skin color matters.

Right?

Wonderful day in progress. A little breezier, but still beautiful outside. Having turned the corner on the property improvements, I was able to address/resolve a lot of other matters, including throwing away a lot of no longer relevant paperwork. The way things are going, I just might wind up organized before June – the month, not the glorious actress who played mom in “Lost In Space” all those years ago – is in the books.

Dealing with what I'm so far calling a “repetitive stress situation” in the right hand. The pain is less than yesterday, but I'm definitely going to need a week of doing as little as possible with it – which is not in the cakewalk zone for it being my dominant hand.

Prolly finally get with cutting the lawn of the primary property when my shift is over in about half an hour.

I gotta say.. damned good example of a descriptively fun installment of a great life blow-by-blow, AKA blog.

The re-petition of concepts is the essence of this dream.

Yeah. But what a relevant topic just a few installments past some HST reverence! ;–)
