“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”

"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

Starting the weekend

Managed to survive the election without any EOD calls, surprisingly - figured on at least one suspicious package somewhere with someone going stupid... Then made it through a long day of teaching at the academy. Plus today managed to assist some in getting the old spare room/new office painted at last so we can shift everything over tomorrow. Add in a long morning in court, a few administrative tasks, and helping out with a solo release board for one of the new guys tonight & it's been a long few days.

Fortunately I have the next few off. A chunk of house stuff to do, more schoolwork that I've been horribly neglecting, and a brisket to cook. Plus time with the kids and wife in there, and maybe even some sleep.

Not as exciting as some weeks of posting, but I'm not complaining one bit.

Mmmmm, brisket. Enjoy.

Thanks! It turned out quite yummy if I do say so myself.
