warm weather and sundry whethers

Today the weather crested up to 77 degrees. After a quick lunch of roasted turkey, new potato, and steamed vegetables, I headed over to the little Lake Park in Rowlett to walk a bit. There were cormorants and ducks, not to mention unsuccessful fishermen, and me. Little purple clover flowers

Tonight the Scooter Libby case went to the jury, and we will see tomorrow what the jury makes of it. I puzzle more about how to get a good picture of my little black dog than I do the arcanities of obstruction of justice law.

I have this crush on a synth called Sawcutter 2.0 which, while chaste, serene and non-sinful, brings me over and over to import different samples into the same melody, to see what they sound like. Bells sound like bells, as per program, but sometimes a dulcimer sounds like a piano,and so forth.

I have three solid days of work ahead, which makes me feel grateful rather than stressed.
