My wife worked late last night. I spent the evening working on a family business matter. My recent hard drive crash destroyed a word processing document. I created a new version, which is almost complete, and found the attachments I needed.

The eBay seller with the flawed listing sent me my money back via Paypal. A different seller sold me a Kodah AZ 521 camera. Time will tell if its lack of an electronic viewfinder proves to be as huge a drawback as I suspect it may be for my bird-image needs. I got some good rabbit pictures, but then deleted them by mistake.

Our backyard bird feeder is a fiesta. Yesterday, 35 Brown-Headed Cowbirds foraged underneath the feeder. while a Carolina Chickadee, Northern Cardinals, Blue Jays, Mourning Doves and other birds sought food from or from below the feeder.

I followed the cross-examination of Rick Gates in the Paul Manafort trial. Jury trials are curious things. We had a good meeting with a lawyer who is of counsel to our firm.

I had a pretty good day at work, though I spent more time on administrative tasks than I prefer to do. At lunch, I walked in Breckinridge Park and had Chinese food from Panda Express. After work, I walked in A.R. Schell Park in Plano. I listened to my cousin Bill's podcast, the Geddie Dunn Show. Bill and his co-host spent part of their careers in television, so they have interesting perspectives.

I used my new used Kodak AZ421 camera. The photos came out looking a little VGA. When I got home, I figured out that the prior owner had set the image size at "email" (i.e., VGA) rather than 16 MP.  That explained a lot. I corrected that.

We ate El Pollo Loco for dinner.

This afternoon the rain fell and where we live rain in August is spelled r-e-l-i-e-f.
