Gray weekend

Yesterday: quiet. Nice. Otis spent most of the day at VM with the family, joining Pater at an extended appointment, so after my morning walk around the lake, I came home and alternately read and did house stuff all day. When Otis got back in the afternoon, we did a little shopping and then headed up to LFP to fix and early dinner for her parents and spent the evening there.

Today: a little busier. Otis had two appointments today, so I am wandering around on foot, having made it to the Wallingford Tully's so far. Who knows where I'll wind up? It's not a bad day for a walk, and the sun is supposed to come put later.

Department of barking up the wrong tree: A few days ago, we got a copy of Field and Stream magazine in the mail, addressed to Otis. The cover proclaimed it the "accuracy issue" and, next to the image of a hunting rifle, said "never miss your deer again." Then yesterday we got a copy of Maxim magazine in the mail, also addressed to Otis. The cover featured a picture of a bikini-clad woman who apparently is "Pineapple Express Bombshell Amber Heard." So, did somebody screw up the mailing list in the free sample department? Or do you think something else is going on?

Hmmmm. Given the cover of the Field and Stream issue perhaps it was meant for me...and for the sake of convenience )and only that, mind you) I'll take the issue of Maxim, too (as it's obviously movie-themed, of course!)

don't see a Maxim, or a Field & Stream.
I haven't been in a room this clean
since they took my appendix out."

Soapy, 10 out of 10 for lyrics recognition, but even for country music, that is one of the stupider songs I have encountered.
