Howard Hughes and the Calendar of Lost Days

Yesterday was an idiotic day. There's no getting around that. In the end, after the internet went out and wouldn't come back on, we gave up and went out to Leeds to spend the night at my mother's. That was our second trip to Leeds yesterday. And then, on top of it all, I couldn't sleep last night. No more than two hours, and now I can hardly sit up. I hope to at least get through a few emails.

But there was Rusty's for dinner. And we did have a walk after dark. The cicadas were loud, and Venus was amazingly bright.

We got home this morning, and the internet was back on. Naturally.
