- There was a time when I spent more time out in the woods playing than any other recreational activity (as a kid). I was convinced that the animals talked to me telepathically, and the birds would actually call my name.
- Yes, I know how crazy that sounded. I didn’t mean it in a crazy way. This was before the Internet. Before cable TV. OK? OK.
- I would even run through the woods barefoot, after dark, I felt so at home there.
- Still sounding crazy. Hmmm… how to redeem myself?
- I like bacon.
Like, if you can order things from amazon and have them delivered via drone within the hour… just think what this could mean for long distance gifting.
Or, what if you could capture or hack into the drone and steal what ever it was carrying? I guess they will have insurance for that.
What if we could drone some fresh water to those people in Africa?
I’m sure this only works in certain countries though. But, the future is exciting.
My daughter came home for Thanksgiving (I picked her up), and we had a great week. Hanging out, having lots of food, visiting family… we went to the zoo, we did the Renaissance Festival… lots of fun, then I took her back on Sunday.
On the way home, she realized she left all her toiletries at home, so we (and by “we” I mean “me”) bought all new stuff for her, on the way back to college (toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, a comb… etc.)
No big deal. I was happy to provide for my daughter, and stuff.
So, today she called and asked if we’ve seen her notes, which she desperately needs, and does not have. I searched and found her notes and a few text books. Why she even brought them I do not know. Presumably she thought she might study in her spare time… but, that did not happen. But, she really needs her notes and her books, because she’s starting finals.
So, I’m going to fedex all of it to her tomorrow.
And, tonight, while me and the two young kids (teens) were watching TV, I realized that my youngest daughter was using my college daughter’s winter coat as a blanket. (As in, she left her coat here too).
She came, spread out, and left most of it here. It seems. She did make it back with some of her stuff, because me and my son and her all made a couple of trips back into her dorm room.
But, sheesh. Wow. Scattered much?
