Happy Caturday, Gerbil Nation!
Hai, Fatwa!

It’s gonna be another hot one. I hope Sven, Mrs. Sven, the cats and the ‘coons are not melting at the Mountain Redoubt.

Hai, Paddy!

It’s cooling down here; our highs will be in the 80s for the next week, rather than the low 100s (with humidity adding at least another 5º to the heat index).

At least K8-E (presumably) enjoyed that.

As you may recall, teh Mountain Redoubt generally gets a nice breeze.

Good afternoon,

I’ve been out of sorts the past couple of weeks--through a combination of wonderful medical and health occurrences, I don’t think I’ve ever felt worse in my entire life. I’m sure I have, but memory and all that.

Best wishes, Paddy, that things will work out for you. Whenever you post updates, I’m stunned to read how this could have happened to you.

Thoughts and prayers, Rabbit, for you and BW. Day by day, things will get better.

All the best to the rest of the gerbil clan.

Given the rather absurd and convoluted rulings out of SCOTUS the last week, it’s amazing that both Heller and McDonald were decided in favor of the Second Amendment just a few years ago.

PW has a nice post post up from Jeff that sums up my take on things rather well:

In particular, I like this: “Second, because we are dealing with law (and not, say, Joyce’s Ulysses), legal convention requires that the texts produced by lawmakers and handed over to courts for application and interpretation must be as clear as possible in their practical expressions. That is to say, because we want laws to be understood, they need be written in such a way that the intent behind them is as clear and unambiguous as it can be made to be.”

Couldnt agree more.

Heya, Sven!

Thanks for the PW link.

Very sorry to read that you’ve been feeling lousy and hope you improve ASAP.

============

Some thunderstorms have blown in, dropping the temp to a quite lovely 75º.

Back to attempting to make some progress on an arrangement…

Yeah, I think it’s time to scrap that idea and start all over.

I was thinking bigger:
