We had to bring the dogs in from the barn today, it is too hot today and forecast to get even hotter as the day goes on. They seem to be tired, just zonked out, probably because a panting dog doesn't pant while sleeping. I lost a dog to heat stroke many years ago and I am wiser now than I was then.
I got another book order through ABEbooks (see link on the right) and I am bummed because it is going to Australia and I lose money when I ship there. Essentially I pay to have the book ordered. This particular book is a paperback called Thin Air, a fictional story based loosely on an actual program during WWII called the Philadelphia Program. In the book, the military are involved in a program to make ships disappear from radar and from sight, with devastating results. It is an interesting story, although the book is pretty old. The buyer is a bookstore in TAS, Australia, so I would guess it is a special order for a customer. One who isn't clued up about out-of-print books and how to buy them directly. At least it isn't a hardback, which is yet more expensive to ship.
