Morticious Thrind is a weblog with an interesting option for a theme: a CLI (Command Line Interface) that looks similar to a bash shell. The commands “last,” “prev,” and “next” can be used to navigate through the blog posts. Jack would love it.

I saw this magnificent Texas Longhorn steer at the National Western Stock Show in Denver yesterday. Few of my photos turned out, due to my reluctance to use flash photography without warning, so go see Connections and look at her photographs in her blog posts Reminiscing!, Cattle Judging, and Hats, Hardware and Humor. She used to exhibit livestock herself, and writes about her memories.
I had been avoiding Stock Show and similar events for several years, since I didn’t know how strenuous I would find it considering my heel problems. However, although I was exhausted when I got home last night, I rated my pain as a two this morning. Since most mornings these days I rate the pain as two to four (on a scale of one to ten) I was quite pleased.
Jack arrived home from Scotland on Friday. I was unclear on the details of his itinerary, and was very happy when I found out from the airline that his flight was direct from Glasgow to Chicago, avoiding the mess at Heathrow. He has been spending some time writing up his adventures, so check out his account at exempli gratia. The first thing I asked him when he got back was whether he got to play the Old Course.
