10.14.12 Prairie Fire Marathon

Took this same photograph last year but it never saw the light of day because my card failed me (the only time that's happened and I wasn't able to retrieve it with software). I was glad the same thing didn't happen again.

10.03.12 corneal abrasion

My sweet Mara did some kitty acrobatics on my head at 2 a.m., lost her footing when I moved and her back paw landed in my left eyeball. The abrasion is the green hourglass figure on my eyeball. I hope never to get another corneal abrasion for as long as I live.

10.02.12 I forgot my earplugs

Covering one whistle-filled machinists rally = more ear damage than playing the drums for 15 years, or at least that's how it felt.
