Curses! Swamped again

In the woods at dusk In the woods at dusk

The swelling in the lymph node had gone down significantly by the morning. There is still a slight lump, but it should go away eventually. I really should stop checking on it.

Made an order at the Bearhands website last night. Then this morning, I got a call from Jeff, who wanted to make sure that I meant to order the Large size, because apparently their "large" is larger than the usual large. (That reminded me of a Thai restaurant somewhere in Woodbridge that claimed that their "hot" is hotter than the usual hot.) There wasn't a sizing guide on the website so I really didn't know how large Large is. I do know that I have trouble with most regular gloves that have a size of large. Anyway, he's going to send a Large and I can exchange it for a Medium if Large is too large. (Not that it's necessarily a problem, depending on what you're using the mitts for. Unless they're large enough to flag down a plane.)

Discovered this afternoon that the right front turn signal had a blown bulb so I went to get it replaced. (Mileage = 201,836)

After that, I went for the Curse of the Suburban Jungle: Redux geocache in a wooded area in Norwood. The "curse" part of this cache is probably that it is located in a rather swampy area. There was a layer of ice on top of the water. Unfortunately, I broke through the ice and got wet anyway. There was also a precarious stream crossing, but I did that the easy way by sitting on the log and scooting over. Overall, it was a decent adventure for a Friday.

Sold my first download at ShutterStock today. (20 cents... we're in the money! :) )
