Same old stuff. Went swimming. Swam 500 meters. Swimming it stronger and more steadily now. Much stronger strokes. I’m hoping to try and run this afternoon, well really this evening.
I think I forgot to mention that I finished Joint Task Force America and am now reading Janet Evanovich‘s Two For The Dough. Joint Task Force America was OK. I won’t be running out in search of another book by David E. Meadows but I also would not refuse a book simply because he was the author. Meadows suffers some of the shortcomings of Tom Clancy. At one point Captain Meadows spends five and a half pages explaining how boats are tied to a pier or landing and the adjustments that must be made to the lines during a storm. The minute detail did nothing to advance the story. It did leave even a sailor like me who enjoys such details, bored to the point of skipping over about half the section.
I’m only a few pages into Two For The Dough but I am already certain that I do not like Evanovich’s hero, Stephanie Plum nearly as much as I like Sue Grafton‘s hero, Kinsey Millhone. Stephanie Plum is a bit more crass than Kinsey albeit usually for the sake of humor. However, like I said, I’m only a few 10s of pages into the book. Let’s see what happens. In the meantime, I did order four more of Sue Grafton’s books.
Excuse me, Mr. Knief, I’d love to be ordering a hard cover copy of another John Caine novel but I just searched Amazon and see that I currently own all the John Caine novels they offer. What’s the hold up, mate?
I ate breakfast at Camp Spearhead the other morning. That still looks like the more interesting place to be. There were a number of Korean military eating breakfast. It would be interesting to get to know some for the Koreans who are serving over here.
Shots have become so insignificant that I think I failed to mention that I got two more the other day. Another Anthrax and Tetnus. A complete non-event from my view. Saturday I also got another PPD test. I have to get some medical person to look at my arm today and confirm that there is no reaction.
