7.My California readers will have paid attention this week to the presence of the Martin Mars, a BC-stationed water bomber. The news reminded me of watching this behemoth fill up several times within 100 metres of my front deck in summer 2006 -- watching it manage to get airborne is tense and exciting!
8. You know, there's still more I want to tell you about -- I want to show you my photos of the Community Gardens, planted now with winter season goodies; I want to tell you something about Great Expectations and Mister Pip; I have a few observations about teaching that I want to share. (As I quote R.L. Stephenson on my sidebar "The world is so full of a number of things")It will all have to wait. Paul's headed back to face his work week, and I'm on my own again. So after I get a bit more marking done, I'm going to settle down with my next-best-thing-to-a-husband -- my Angel DVDs and my knitting!
