So, as you might have surmised by now, I have not had any big news about the astronaut candidate selection. With January 2013 in the history books, it looks like that door has closed for this option for now. I have thusly pivoted to investigating other fruitful, professional opportunities, and it has been interesting seeing what all is out there these days. In general, things seem more hopeful than years past.
The weather remains dry here in Kansas with 104 of 105 counties being declared drought disaster areas. Allegedly there is some rain in the forecast for tonight, but who knows whether any will really materialize.
With no dog here at home for several years, the critters have certainly made themselves more at home. Last night we used a live trap cage and relocated the first of several opossums that have taken up residence in a burrow under the concrete slab of our driveway. There are several more to deal with, but hopefully we’ll be able to remove them permanently without much trouble.
