Laura shall soon depart for the Sacramento Airport, where she will board a Southwest Airlines plane and fly to Tucson, AZ to visit her daughter and granddaughter and other relatives. The cats, Zeus and Thor, and I shall miss her. We shall enjoy an exciting period of male bonding, however.

The weather remains chilly. The wind that plagued us yesterday morning appears to be gone, however. It is currently a fairly cool 57 degrees, and the humidity is at 72%. The high for today is forecast to be 79 degrees. Yikes! The sky is overcast, and dark storm clouds loom. Hopefully, the weather will improve for the car show in Durham tomorrow.

Laura spoke with her daughter, Rachel, on the telephone yesterday. Rachel told her that Tucson is enjoying triple-digit temperatures. This displeased Laura, who enjoys cooler weather. If it were possible, I should like to trade weather with Tucson—at least for the weekend.

Here is a logo I created for an upcoming project. Details on this project will be released soon.
