sweater done2

I accomplished my goal for the weekend and finally finished this sweater! Of course, it's made of wool, so not suitable for wearing in So Cal for another three months . . .

Even though the holiday was yesterday, the office is deserted today which amplifies my lethargic work ethic.

I'm starting to totally dig the eReader on my iPhone. I finished Tarzan of the Apes and started a Miss Marple mystery while I was getting a pedicure. Tarzan is one of those books that you have to keep reminding yourself was written before anybody had heard the terms "politically correct." Now while I'm no expert on babies raised by animals, it seems to me unlikely that such a baby, when he had reached his teens, could stumble upon some books and teach himself to be a fluent reader and writer. It also seems unlikely that a child who had never spoken except in his native ape language would develop a fluent and charming way with French in about a month. (It's unclear what species of ape he lived with, but it seems to be some sort of missing link). It also seems unlikely that the spawn of a British fop and his wife would grow into a master hunter and fighter.

All that being said, the book did come free with the eReader.

Oh, and I did get a chuckle out of this cartoon my cousin sent me . . .
