Right now I am reading Old SF (part of the John Grimes Saga by A. Bertram Chandler), keeping up here, and enjoying an ice café au lait with crème de cacao.

I'm happy to report that the pineapple was very sweet and delicious. I'm thinking I may as well stick the top into some soil rather than just pitching it out. That "may as well" thing is a slippery slope -- all set about with leftover tomato seeds, avocado seeds, melon seeds.......and little pots of dirt to keep moist.

it must be nice to be able to grow your own pineapple, tl. doesn't it take a pretty long time (or so i've heard)?

has anyone seen a guy named androcles?

i need to find someone to help me pull a thorn from my paw, er, i mean foot. as we shot off some bottle rockets last night, i managed to step on a thorn from a rose bush that was pruned earlier in the day. i shouldn't have gone out barefoot. now it's all red and swollen.

i have a brand new pair of mini wirecutters that might do the trick.

Tweezers! Your wife has some. Wire cutters will cut the thorn and make it shorter and harder to pull out.

I find the easiest way to remove some skin for removing splinters, etc. is with a needle or safety pin (safety pins are easier to hold). Be sure to wash the foot and sterilize the needle first. You can sterilize the needle with a flame, just remember to let it cool off before using it. If you have some medicinal hydrogen peroxide, that's good stuff to pour on the wound. It might even bubble out the thorn.

Soak your foot in warm water first, then the thorn should be easier to pull out with tweezers. No skin hacking!!!

Otherwise, I have a hatchet...

We're getting ready to go on a two-week trip to Michigan to visit family and head up the western shore to Sleeping Bear Dunes. Lots of cleaning and packing today.
