Another beautiful day. Finished picking at [Ascuis?] 2nd Patch went to Raymonds[?] at about 11 a.m. lost time in changing patches. Again get weary by 2 p.m. & want to lay down. Dad went to visit Willis' saw mill & came & picked a few berries about 3 carriers. Didn't do so well today. Mrs. Van's red-headed son only picked 2 carriers & went to Olga to his room where he is boarding. Saw a half a dead fish in the sea. [simple fish drawing at bottom of page] A small tuna fish! Had the most brilliant deep blue aqua marine eyes & long teeth & a huge [fan?] fin on its back 3 ft or 4 ft long put a stick in its mouth & grasped it (tuna)
A dead fish, apparently a tuna. I didn't know they came up into the Sound waters. I wonder if that's what it really was? As a historical note, I have, in fact, retrieved weather data from 1948. Between June 26-30 it was indeed pleasant ranging between the mid-70s and mid-80s for temperatures (82 and 83 respectively on June 28-29). That is data from Seattle and the person is up in Bellingham, so there will be a bit of a difference.
Not much exciting going on in 2011. The ladies at Global Health seem pleases with my work for the week that involved a data dictionary for the computed variables. It is data from the Hope Clinic in Kenya. Kind of a mess, but it's a job. I would guess probably 20% of the employees there are male so all in all it's a pleasant little work environment for me, tellyawhat, although the estrogen levels are starting to make me look at window treatments with a bit more interest. . . .
I posted about my old Hitachi cassette deck over at Audiokarma. I might have a go at fixing the dumb thing as I hate to just get rid of it. Besides, it doesn't work so what can I hurt? (he says. . . )
