So I’ve been having range issues with my Bluetooth mouse & my MBP since forever, & it finally occurred to me to google it(duck duck go it) this morning, & the first suggestion I came across was to remove the battery cover from the bottom. Bam. Wish I’d looked this up 3 years ago. 🤦🏻‍♂️

Ha, putting your money where your mouth is means digging ditches in Texas caliche all morning. I hope my kidneys survive- I’m sweating out all the fluids.

Here’s a wonderful blog post from an ex-Mefite about the meaning of community:

Cavers are my community & the closest thing I have to brothers & sisters.

Coffee time. Going to help a friend upgrade the living space he’s made available for another elderly, frail friend who had to leave his land in the country because he couldn’t live alone. No real family- cavers are his de facto family & he’s being cared for well by them in his last months. This is a strong community. This guy pretty much taught me mutli flash cave photography 25 years ago.

Goofing around with Prisma - this is the floor at work, where I am waiting for ink to dry. Exciting!

I don't know what this site is, but I'm flattered that they used one of my photos in their article, even though it's not even in the state they say it's in:

More pics from Oakwood Cemetery in Austin. Mostly shot black & whit film, which is off being developed

Big music listener, not much of a movie watcher. We watched Cool Hand Luke for the first time in years last night & I just caught that John Melloncamp totally ripped a line of dialogue from it for Scarecrow.

“Sorry, Luke - it’s just my job. I hope you understand.”
“Callin’ it your job don’t make it right, boss.”

New day, new job, new band, new gigs, change is everywhere & it all seems good right now.

I don’t have a picture to add, but the bread went really well with the beef stew I made today. Nice to have a long enough weekend to actually cook.

I made bread! It’s a little yeasty, but it’s not too crumbly or gooey in the middle like the last recipe I tried.

I am now four Brautigan books into this reading spree & it’s all every bit as wonderful as I remembered it.

Trout Fishing in America is a very strange and wonderful book.

Still here, re-reading a bunch of Brautigan because it reminds me of hone.

I just found a roll of Tri-X & a roll of Velvia digging through my camera bag. I intend to shoot it all. Taking the D7100 too If course- it holds 1200 RAW files.

I’m going to the Oregon coast for a week & I have 4 rolls of Ilford HP5 ready for action. I’m actually hoping the weather’s terrible so there’s some waves. Cape Perpetua is calling.


I made deep fried tofu and now I’m making a coconut milk & peanut curry! Yay for days off!

Added a USB 3.0 card to my Mac Pro. Chock full o’drives. Boot SSD on a SATA III PCIe card, 10.6.8 boot drive on SSD card in slot 4, 1 tb storage in slot 3 , 4 tb RAID 0 storage in slots 1 & 2. Not visible - 2 more backup drives in empty space above DVD drive. Love this thing, even if it’s stuck at High Sierra.
