I had horrible sleep. We had a 20% chance o rain and got THREE thunderstorms in six hours, with about an inch of rain. Oh good. The gutter cleaning saved us somewhat but ... it was coming in waterfalls, not drops. Yeesh.
Frogs are seeking higher ground. That's how wet it is. I do not exaggerate. Frogs want it to be less wet. Not good.
Meanwhile, temperatures in parts of Europe will exceed 110*F. This is very abnormal stuff. They generally see the 80s. Not 100s. And since they rarely have air conditioning... Oh yeah. Bad bad bad.
Today in 1876 was Custer's Last Stand at Little Big Horn, where he and his men were killed in one of the more dramatized but not terribly unexpected moments in the US Indian Wars. That is, the US wars on indigenous Native Americans. A combined force of Cheyenne and Sioux and Arapaho wipoed out over 200 US soldiers, and given Custer's hubris... Yeah. Dude was a walking time bomb of ego since the US Civil War, where he fancied himself quite the cavalry genius. He had good PR. His widow especially kept him shiny posthumously.
But, realistically, you take 200 or so men up aainst what you think are 800 (and even that's not the best idea) on the assumption you can whump 'em, and then you run into evidence that the enemy knows you're there... Your support column isn't supporting... And it turns out that you don't fully credit your Native scouts when they say this is one big freaking gathering... Yeah. Ouch.
Speak of flops... Today in 1998, "Windows 98" debuted. Yeah. Hurrah. (note: Sarcasm) It hasn't gotten better since. Other than XP. IMHO, of course. Some people loved 98.
OK, my arm hurts crazy (human barometer!) and today is one of thsoe PTSD days when I reallllllly wish sleep happened to me. Alas.
Purrs and furry cuddles and so forth! :-)
Ok no full answers yet, but he does NOT THINK its cancer. I need more tests i cant get until the 22nd of August but hes not real worried only slightly. A hystrectomy at my weight with diabetes and my other health issues is risky and about a 6 month recovery because of the diabetes and my lungs and heart issues. So IF we can avoid it its better but when i lose 50 more pounds he would do it then....
