Brush with Bob

November 20th, 2011

P1070085

I’d managed to evade crocodiles, poisonous snakes, deadly spiders, the odd wallaby wandering onto the highway in Australia. Even wild bears, wolverines, mountain lions and moose in North America. Quietly pleased I’d so far avoided any form of aggressive encounter with the local fauna. Only to fall foul of Bob. The house rabbit. Wondering why my netbook screen had unexpectedly dimmed. To find the little bunny was busy chewing through the power lead. Alas, the low voltage side, so no harm done to the family pet. Couldn’t quite say the same about my cable.

Brief intermission

October 25th, 2011

P1070085

Regular followers of the blog may be aware I usually run a little ahead of it – in this case, about a thousand miles from Seattle. For I’m now down in San Francisco, so just seven hundred miles or so from the Mexican border.

Spending a few days in the city – routine maintenance, aspirations to visit Alcatraz – and writing up more of the blog once I’ve fixed the power supply for my netbook. Cable chewed through not by a wild bear or raccoon, or even a feral cat, but a house rabbit. Called Bob. Some things you can’t make up….

So, please bear with me – a brief blog intermission – as the last of the scheduled posts have now appeared….
