I had hoped to jump in tonight on Martha's new photo meme, "Strange Shots," but nothing much is jumping out at me in my archive. So here's a down payment on that, with hope that I come up with better stuff later, preferably after sleep.
The big news at 6:30 AM Tuesday was that I lost my phone. Disaster! I had only been to the dog park and Safeway, but I searched the house and the car to no avail. John dialed the number, twice, in the hope we would hear it ringing. He got a busy signal the first time, dialed back, and let it ring until my voicemail picked up. No sound in the house of a ringing phone. Arrgh!
I have to have my phone, because it's my contact number for recruiters, prospective employers, medical folks and a smattering of friends. So I got dressed and waited for 7 AM so I could go to Safeway and Reid Park to try to track it down. About five of, I went out to the car...
...and there it was, upside down on the floor on the driver's side. But I had looked there! Really! But at least it turned up eventually. I had been about to go to bed when I failed to find it, but was too upset afterward to go to bed for two more hours.
When I was awake again, I called my recruiter about last Friday's job interview. There is no definitive answer yet, but it's looking good. There's a licensing rigmarole to go through because of the specific industry (and no, I won't name the industry if I get the job), but I hope to be gainfully employed by the end of December.
And here's a semi-strange shot by way of an update on the current attempt to make the blocked off half of Miko's Corner Playground dog park greener. They've been soaking it for a week, and now I think they've added grass seed. At least, that what I assume dozens of pigeons and mourning doves are feasting on!
