Drivel that cannot fit in a single panel comic.

Loki spent the day at the office, yesterday. He received lots of attention. I took him to the vet after work. He needed to get his rabies shot certificate. The old one got misplaced.

Loki had a good time exploring the campus and chasing squirrels. A mockingbird strafed him.

Loki was well behaved. He is a great dog.


My term as Board President is going okay, so far. I've met with the office staff and informed her of changes. Met with the search committee and got them started. I will be contacting the District Ministerial Settlement Representative to give her a time when we can meet.

There are still other things to do. I'm doing them at my pace but I get the impression that my pace is not fast enough for others. I'm not a sprinter. I try not to let the to-do list overwhelm me. Have to remember to stay steady or else I will not have the energy to make it to the finish line.

I presided over my first board meeting. It went a little long but it was a huge agenda. I'm glad that the past-President was out of town that day. I found it helpful to not have that shadow over me at the first meeting. It allowed me space to set the tone. I think I will skip the first Board meeting that the new president will preside over.


I haven't attempted a sprint in a long time - just run as fast as I can for a short distance. I ran as fast as I could during the last .2 miles of the Freescale Marathon but that is not quite the same. I wonder how fast I can run straight off the start line? Last time I attempted a sprint I aggravated a knee injury. That was over 11 years ago. My knee has survived 3 marathons and the training. My legs are stronger but I'm still hesitant to try a sprint. Kind of odd, since I've ran up to 8 mph on a treadmill. I felt as if my legs were going to fly apart when I set the treadmill that fast.

I need to visit a track and time a single lap. It might be interesting and/or comical.

Do I know how to run fast anymore? Run fast for no real reason, like I did as a kid.
