11:28 – Barbara gets back tomorrow. I can’t wait. Colin had the squirties yesterday and overnight, not to mention barfing up his dinner on the foyer rug, so I’m running on very little sleep.
Barbara called a few minutes ago. The tour bus had made a stop at a Cabellas, so Barbara was walking around the guns and ammunition section. Geez. The last time I bought a box of 100 .45 ACP ammunition at Wal*Mart, it was something like $29. She said Cabellas had the same box, but it’s now $78. She said she wasn’t comfortable buying ammunition, which was fine with me since I have no idea whether it’d even be legal to transport it interstate on a tour bus. She did say she could pick up a couple of shotguns, but I passed on that as well. I told her about Colin’s squirties problem, and of course she was very concerned. But it seems to have cleared up today, so I told her not to worry about it.
I’m working today on designing an earth science kit. Kit design is always an iterative process, adding stuff tentatively and then taking it out later when it turns out it’s not worth the cost because there are cheaper ways to accomplish the same thing. And the whole time I’m roughing out the lab manual, adding stuff here and removing stuff there.
