That made me think of the bridge I visited this past summer. The Humpback Bridge is near Covington.

I want sure if we would get much of a walnut crop this year. But when I came home a lot of the leaves had been blown down in the winds before the rain showers. We will certainly have a respectable showing. I will have to make an effort to get them cleaned and shelled this year.

Here is a slide show of previous pictures. In the morning I will add the pond now. The fish seem to be doing well. I hope the trauma wasn't too severe.
This book reads like a spy thriller, but it is amazingly real. A Brazilian journalist, the author, Andrei Netto, tells the story of his attempt to enter Libya to report on the Revolution and go to Tripoli with the help of revolutionaries he meets along the way. Eventually, he is captured with his companion, an Iraqi journalist. In time he is freed and continues to tell the story of the Revolution.
Often during the book, I was silently urging Netto to turn back, but like all good journalists he persisted to the end.
The book drew me in to the action, while at the same time giving a good overview of the overall situation. It would have been helpful to have a map of Libya to follow through the towns he visited. I found myself frequently going to Google Maps.
Given how Libya has become a matter of partisan politics in the USA, it was refreshing to see a different perspective. The book was originally written in Portuguese. The English translation is excellent and highly readable.

I found several youtube videos on how to replace the shell. They did say it wasn't a difficult process. That was true, but it did turn out to be pretty tedious. It took me two hours to take it apart and remove all the components. I took pictures along the way.

New Closet Floor, a set on Flickr.
This is the closet made from an enclosed porch. It extends to become a library on one end and connects to the spare bedroom on the other. The old fiberboard had caved in and in his last months Tigger confused it with his catbox. Now it has new plywood and tiles. We just have to move the closet racks to their final places.
