Yesterday morning, I met with the records manager and a Sergeant at the Mashpee Police Station and with executives from the County about the Saturday altercation at the High School.
Ron drove us to the County to support me and to babble about his life as a lab tech.
Actually, the meeting was quite interesting. The County Administrator, former Mayor of Brockton, is knowledgeable about water treatment, reverse osmosis in particular.
Ron drove to South Dennis to pick up an EZ-Pass transponder at AAA. Unfortunately, he made the mistake of walking into Edgewater on the way back to tell Peter he was there to do the lawn. Peter was understandably upset, and Ron was well-intentioned but should have known better. Peter’s been feeling punk, not sleeping well, and was up early to bring Robert to the airport. Lousy timing all the way around.
Email was out for a while at LaMotte. Didn’t seem to matter, everyone was either traveling or watching the eclipse. I didn’t bother to look, except to notice that the light was similar to a monitor backlit on low power mode, but did find it interesting to track what the eclipse did to the solar output for about an hour and half starting around 2:15.
I was able to set up the Spin Touch over the weekend. Yesterday, the android phone arrived, along with Alpha’s rainbow bracelet and flag. Fortunately, a good soul had posted instructions on getting around Verizon activation, so I have a working device that doesn’t need a calling plan.
Made a heavy vegetable stew for supper; it was good! Corn, tomatoes, basil, garlic, two kinds of squash, green pepper, kale.
Smokey was waiting on the deck at 7:30; he greeted Ron nicely and loudly!
