August Update

I kept meaning to update all through July, but I somehow never got around to it. Part of the reason is that I had quite a hectic month. For example, right before I was going to be off work for the weekend, I was told that I would be going on a job training trip to Seattle bright and early on Monday, so I had to rush around making reservations and getting my trip expenses approved. It proved to be an interesting trip, and I got to see a little bit of Seattle while I was there, including the Science Fiction Museum.

My impressions of Seattle:
  • It's COLD in the morning, even in July.
  • There are far too many people who just stand around smoking on the sidewalks.
  • I didn't find any money on the ground the entire time I was there. (For reference, I found 6 cents in downtown San Francisco the day before I left, and I found 4 cents on my way to and from work the day after I returned.)

My schedule will continue to be irregular as I have yet another out of state training trip coming up this month, and next month I will transition to the K9 schedule so that I can shadow the other canine handlers to learn how they do things.

Otherwise, I've mainly been working on harvesting the various items growing on my balcony.
