My friend and excellent fantasy cartographer, Scott Blume, drew a dungeon. My contribution was the name. 😀

I am sure that some day a character of mine (or a dozen) will encounter a nasty end there...

My friend's not quite pet deer. She has two fawns nearby. That's her third set of twins.

A panorama from my friend's deck in Wyoming. My phone made it from a number of other photos without my asking it to do so.

Oh, my God! One problem... I would want to wear this daily... and even sleep in it!  Haha. I love this. Maybe I could find (make) an apron like this for when I do my baking, too!  Cool!

Sharing for a certain Canadian person. 😀
 
The Canadian model for trade deals http://econ.st/28ZqElf
It might look appealing to Brexiteers, but requires patience

Another seemingly alien landscape. :)

I hardly ever go into Fry's any more. The only reason to go is if I already know exactly what I want, and it's such a simple item that can't possibly make a mess of selling it. Today's trip is a fine example of why I don't go there. My headset broke, so I thought I'd get a new one at Fry's. First, I had to find them. The idiots put a sale sign over the sign on the end cap that would have told me which aisle had headsets. Fine. I find headsets, sans help from anyone at the store. Then I find one that might suit me, but I can't tell if it has a USB connection. So I find someone (admittedly, a nice, helpful person) and he runs off to find out if the thing does USB. The folks who supposedly know don't know, so they open it. We could have done that in the aisle and saved that ten minutes. In the meantime, I've found another one that has a USB connection and is $10 less. (I''m sensitive to the price of headsets, because previous experience tells me I'll have to return the first two before I get one that works worth a damn, and I may not be able to return it, given the wonderful return policy at Fry's.) So I get to the checkout counter, and the clerk tells me it's twice the price I expect. The sign on the shelf doesn't actually correspond to the product placed directly over the sign. Now I'll buy a headset online, which means that my friends will just have to put up with me not having a headset today. And that was my last trip to Fry's. Misleading pricing, a return policy designed purely to penalize customers, and a general air of "We just want to take your money, not actually help you" is the trifecta that will send me shopping anywhere else.

At first, I had a very poor experience with a seemingly uncaring and bureaucratic agency. Then some good people who work at Austin Energy stepped up and took care of my issue. So there are good people there, and I'll adjust my rating accordingly.

I ordered a pizza. The driver took it somewhere else and tried to give me someone else's pizza. Then he went and got my pizza (which had been in the hands of someone else, of course). I refused that, since who knows what may have been done to it. Then I called the store to reverse my credit card transaction. I waited on hold for 10 minutes and 53 seconds, only to have the phone system disconnect me. In the next call, I got someone who was clearly not too versed on the system. Who knows whether the transaction was actually reversed? So now I'll have to watch my credit card account for a couple days. Given that delivering the right pizza to the right address is more than they can do, I can find somewhere else to buy a pizza.

I called at 10 AM. They said they'd be along between 5 and 7 PM. I called again at 6:30 PM. They said they'd be along between 7:30 and 8 PM. Now it's just about 9 PM, and I haven't seen or heard from them. And now I'm calling someone else. Get service anywhere else.
