Only half as educated, but about the same age here. And you've heard me speak. You are not alone.

With all respect to your religious traditions, I had to stop at your "sacred sites in Scotland, with side trips to whiskey distilleries". As a whiskey drinking atheist, my brain really needed that to be "sacred sites in Scotland *such as* whiskey distilleries."

I am sorry for your distress about a childless house. You are a stellar parent and you will find your way to the other side of these feelings. Until then, I'll be holding you up in my thoughts.

And 20 hrs/wk in the studio is very good! I hope you feel proud of yourself.

I'm so sorry, Jules. This is a lovely and loving tribute to a beautiful little creature.

Travel agents are routine for Mr Rose and his colleagues when they travel to Third World countries to observe biodiversity in still-wild, hard-to-reach places. I mean, the scientists arrange ground transport. Usually very old pickup trucks with very experienced local drivers who become regulars year after year of seasonal field work. But the flights can be a puzzle, making connections that happen only once a day or twice a week. Then working out how to reliably transport field lab equipment. Travel agents are considered necessary.

Oh SentientFuego, I'm so sorry. Blissfully stoned but able to signal it was time. What a very, very good dog.

I also avoided vacuuming after FirstDog broke my heart by needing to leave this plane of existence. Eventually I made a short braid of shed hair, after which I felt ok about cleaning up the rest of it.
