So, Day 1 of my Staycation was fine. I had lunch with my friend Betsy, teased her with the first chapter of The Body in the Loch, and ended the visit with a trip to Dairy Queen where I had a large Drumstick Blizzard. As I commented to Bathwater on 6/8 I love Blizzards.
The rest of the evening was spent in relaxation, not doing anything... well, that's not quite true, I did run the dishwasher, but that isn't really work.
I packed away the medical thermometer given to my by my employer, the large Orange Home Improvement retailer. Hopefully, I will never have to use the damn thing on a daily basis ever again. Unfortunately, I still need to complete the Associate Health Check before the time clock will let me punch in; I can't wait for that to disappear as well.
Here are some of the character names from The Body in Repose: Cookie Lindquist, Raj Beneh, Sheila Caine, and Antoine DeGuerre. Character names are very important. It's not unusual for me to spend several weeks choosing them. I guess, in a way, it's a lot like naming your children, which is odd, since why would you want to give a good name to a character you know is going to be bad?
The harvest has begun on my peaches. Some of them are fairly sizeable, some not so, being the size of walnuts.
