We have a lunch appointment but before we leave the UPS driver has to bring a new oxygen machine and the box must be opened to receive the new device and the defective machine sent back in it. I think the driver has orders to that effect. We have a backup plan if the driver isn't timely (I'll stay and wait for the box and my ex will take the friend to lunch with our daughter). Hopefully by having a backup plan we won't need to deploy it (our inoculation against Murphy's Law).

I was ready to make the last big push but with guests and skunk cleaning this week there has been no chance to get caught up in the garden. I despair having good crops if it gets so hot again as last year.

On a different front, while sorting eBay electronics I pulled out a dual cassette player (a Sony big one - found at Goodwill a while back) to set up in my office next to the computer to start transferring my Dad's taped recordings into files in the computer. I'll test the player today. I have one that was his but one of the compartments doesn't open (it was forced open or shut and killed that mechanism). It's way past time to work on all of this, but I have the whole array - reel-to-reel, cassette, turntable and CD players here with a receiver if I need that to power any of them.

I'm here at the front of the house and nothing has come by but my friend just got a text that they attempted delivery. Not at this house they didn't. Great.
