I stumbled into a Veterans' Day public event today. Various local politicians walked up to the podium in quick sequence, each testifying to having younger relatives in the service if they did, or just offering three cheers to the veterans if they didn't, and sitting down.
Meanwhile, at home, here's TMCI (Too Much Cat Information): Pippin barfed after breakfast today. This is unusual for him; Pandora is the principal cat barf producer in the household. I heard these unusual coughing-like sounds and thought, "That's a cat doing something we'd rather it not do," and went over to his favorite nesting spot to find Pippin sniffing with curiosity at these strange objects that had somehow appeared on the floor in front of him.
