Dog with black fur

Louise on the boat

Louise was a dog with black fur
She loved to run network fiber
Lash it to her tail
She'd pull without fail
For each run I would reward her.

Doggie loved to whine

By aaron.axvig, 22 January, 2020

My good doggie loved to whine
When she wasn't given our time
She wanted a sratch
On her white chest patch
Eventually I said fine.

Apple crisp

By aaron.axvig, 22 January, 2020

My fiancée makes apple crisp
And not just when we have a tryst
Better than apple pie
Makes me a lucky guy
I won't fade away to a wisp.

Humbolt County

(Anna was watching a Netflix series on people growing marijuana in Humbolt County.)

Joe passed time in Humbolt County
Of weed he grew quite a bounty
Thieves came for his crop
And he made them drop
On police he could not account-y

The Mysterious Stranger and Other Stories by Mark Twain

A collection of enjoyable stories by Mark Twain.  I have only previously read his most famous works, and that many years ago.

As the foreword alludes, these stories get darker as you go further into the collection.  I enjoyed the lighter ones more but the darker ones did make me think.

Strangely, this book did not have an ISBN number in it.

Abduction by Rodman Philbrick and Lynn Harnett

Wacky. It's about people being abducted by aliens for mind control purposes, so basically all of the stereotypical stuff with a mild plot wrapped around it. A little cheesier than I expected.

I was fortunate to be part of a guided tour of the Sail, Power, and Steam Museum in Rockland, ME that was guided by Captain Jim. Now about 6 months later I finished his book in one day.

Needless to say it is a great read if you love stories about boating.

Star Wars: The Jedi Academy Trilogy: Jedi Search

I probably read this book back in middle school as I used to read a ton of Star Wars and Star Trek books back then.  Anyways, now I have read it again.

I believe I read a while back that the new Star Wars movies have removed all of the Expanded Universe books from canon.  So it was a little weird to be reading this book and be thinking all along that it isn't really "true."  Of course it is fiction, but now it is like discarded fiction.  Still a quick enjoyable read though.
