Here’s a picture of a random grasshopper I took while I was in Norman, Oklahoma over the weekend. It was on the front of a store in the old downtown section of the city.
Libby and I traveled to Norman for my nephew’s wedding. I’d never been to the town before, though I have been to Oklahoma a few times, so I can verify that the place with such an unlikely name actually exists.
I’m still having troubles with iPhoto, and all of the discussion I can find online about it doesn’t make sense to me. One thing I saw over and over, though, was how it was a mistake to upgrade to the latest version, which I had just done hoping to fix the problem. So I’ll get an appointment at the Apple Genius bar this week and see if they can straighten it all out. What’s odd is that I can export some pix but not others, and I can’t see any difference in them.
Also, I found that missing post I wrote about on Friday. By then, though, I had already rewritten the post, and the second draft was better than the first (which is usually the case with these things).
Finally, I did an eight-mile run on Friday (before driving for nearly six hours to Oklahoma). That’s double my best so far. I’ll confess that I did stop at the halfway point to rest for about 15 minutes and suck down most of a bottle of Gatorade. And as I noted before, by showing myself how much I can do, I rob myself of my excuse for slacking. Also, my legs felt just fine the next day (Saturday). Usually they feel tight and angry for about two days, so I hope this is a sign my body is adapting to my new normal.
