Robin's words were meant to be rhetorical, but Belafonte's reply was phrased oddly enough to get Robin's attention: "How are you feeling?"
"Much better, thanks," Robin said, and rushed off down the hall.
Well, I'm delighted to say tonight that Tuffy is much better, thanks. She greeted me at the door tonight as usual, and ate a bunch of the watered down canned dog food, and seemed happy to be petted and scratched. It's clear that her tongue still hurts - she's mostly drinking her food rather than eating it - but she's definitely more chipper tonight, and I was able to get her pills inside her. Hooray!
Supposedly we'll be able to tell that the tongue isn't quite straight, but frankly I'd rather not look!
I got a couple neat photos tonight, shortly before and shortly after sunset, but not really during. The cloud photo above is not lightened or darkened or saturated in any way. The dusk photo is lightened a bit, but that's all.
The novel editing and any short story I might attempt will have to wait for another day, but I did accomplish something tonight. Tae - The AOL Mail Blog Guy left a comment on one of my recent entries, assuring me that AOL mail can be accessed and saved through a number of mail client programs. He mentioned POP3 and IMAP protocols, but not specifically how to set them up. Good enough, though: based on that hint, my Google search box suggested the appropriate search terms with very little prompting. It took me a few tries to get the account set up correctly, but the key info was found on someone's unofficial FAQ about it:
The AOL IMAP and SMTP server addresses are:
- imap.aol.com (port 143)
- smtp.aol.com (port 587)
