Mysteries of Life.
Then I realized I could get many of the magazines I liked digitally, and that would save space and clutter.
I bought a book recently on the Kindle HD, and was horrified to see that even if you marked a magazine "keep", your magazines would only be stored for 12 issues total per title in "the cloud." But I looked, and I have at least a years worth of Shotgun News magazines stored there, about 36 individual issues. So I wrote to Amazon, and they said what the book said, that the HD Fire will only let you keep 12 magazines per title in "the cloud." When I wrote back and said I was looking at 36 issues + of Shotgun News, and was able to select any issue and pull it up, they said that was impossible. This is clearly one of those mysteries of life which cannot be explained or understood by the human intellect.
I bought volume 1 of Paul Hardcastle's two volume smooth jazz collection. Some of his songs that I really like are on there.
Instead of going out now and dragging the heavy extension ladder up to the roof to replace some shakes lost in the big storm, I am sitting inside listening to it now.
I should be out there working but I am tired today. I guess I'll go out in a minute and try to get at least a little work done. Moving that ladder is the hardest part of the job.
Ragnar has to go to the exotic pet specialist tomorrow. It will be a long trip but he needs to be seen by somebody who knows something about ferrets. He has developed a big tumor looking thing on his shoulder. My attempts to treat it with antibiotics and salve have made it better, but I am so gun shy after this past year that I am going to take him to the specialist anyway.
I asked my daughter to check the shelters and rescues where she lives and see if there are any special needs ferrets who might like to come down here and live on the mountain. I always take the one's who are less likely to be chosen , so I get ferrets who have problems off the bat. At least I can see they are well cared for and they always reciprocate by being affectionate and entertaining friends.
