It has been a continuum of the previous few days of bleah weather.
So for entertainment, a write up on one of my toys was finished. Sturdy Stead now has a spot in OFMDetails for your entertainment. Keep in mind my equipment gets used and maintained. It has the character that comes with adventures. If there are any questions on Sturdy, please leave a comment and maybe my feeble mind can come up with some kind of answer. Truth is optional.
As the walls were about to squeeze the life out of me, an escape was made to the library. From in the depths of the TEXAS section a couple of books were brought back to the Castle. The first time that a TEXAS section happened to me was a couple of years ago. A book was listed as "in" on the computer card catalog. It was not to be found. Finally the attendant was asked about it. He came over took one glance and asked “Did you look in the TEXAS section?” A really intelligent answer emanated from me “HUH”. He explained that they had moved all the books about Texas to a special TEXAS section and on the screen it had a spot that noted Texas. That means the book is in the TEXAS section. It still does not seem like a great thing to me, but at least the system and I are communicating now.
One of the books is an old book from way back in my past on Texas fishing by AC Becker. It has been on my list of books to read for years. Now it will be enjoyed.
The second book is about shells found on the Texas shores of the Gulf of Mexico. Little did I know what all those shells on PINS were leading to. This is the condensed pocket edition of an expert’s big volume for shell identification on the Texas shore. It still has hundreds of shells in it. It only took an hour to totally over whelm me. Too much detail for my head. My knowledge will stick with things like there is a pretty orange one or WOW look at the striped one or check out the spirals on this one. That is good enough for me. Of course a few pictures for my readers is required.
A question in my mind could use some help. Would you prefer a coastal climate with 45-50 degree damp weather (Rockport) or a desert climate (Terlingua) with 30-35 degree dry weather??? Which would be more pleasant for going out and trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM
