I arrived late early this morning at the dentist's office, but things there otherwise went well. My wife got into a rear-end collision today, but fortunately the car that rear-ended her car caused some property damage rather than drastic, or, so far as we know, any apparent personal injury. I was relieved that she was okay. The work day passed vigorously but without any troubling incidents. At day's end I watched the scissor-tailed flycatchers atop a huge tree.
