Last night the Garland clinic of the Dallas Volunteer Attorney Program had but 4 volunteer attorneys and 37 clients. Though I usually finish between 8:15 and 9 (it starts at 7), last night I was there until 10:20. Then I fell asleep rather late. I did watch a fascinating
Jane Goodall documentary at a holy but unheralded hour. It was no suprise at all how lovely she was as a young woman, and unfortunate, as ever, that some folks treated her looks as if it were her only currency to offer. The world is full of folks over-obsessed with appearance.

Today I got a lot done at work. I was taking bluebird pictures in the park at lunch,when
suddenly bluebirds, finches, and other sundry small birds all rose up and flew in a grand alarum. I looked around, and, sure enough, a kestrel had flown into the area.

Tonight we ate at Silver Thai. I had spicy bahmee soup with chicken. Then I listened to a cloudcast about CPU chips on a show called This Week in Tech. I have so many gaps in my tech knowledge.
