Not a Typecast. Not a Pencast Either.

I am way behind on my posting.  Then many things do not work out as planned.

I still have too many irons in the fire.  Stuck in Florida too -- unless I refuse to return from Iowa.

We've been on the road for a while. It all started with visiting a few of the local state parks and trails.  Then with some family interests we've once again landed in Iowa, and we've been visiting Illinois.

This trip also took place with a substitute for a Skyriter.  My Hermes Baby. Wish I would have stayed with my decision to bring the Skyriter.  The Hermes is not as good as a Skyriter.  It will not even feed a Typosphereian Post Card.  Skyriters feed post cards.

My Baby is in quite good condition, but it lacks the functionality of a Skyriter.  It just happens to fit my computer backpack better than a Skyriter and weighs less.  Every bit of space and mass reduction pays when traveling.  Since Mrs. M is handicapped the least I carry the better.  Generally I would not even given thought to a typewriter or even my computer except that I am doing a bit of job hunting while here.

I've fallen behind on blog reading, although I think I have been reading all.  I know I could miss a post sometimes.  I have not commented much either.  Time is tight.  (Now I sound a bit like Booker T and the MG's).

I've really (as always) enjoy my time away from Florida.  Weather in Iowa has been fantastic.  Illinois has been a bit windy.  The locals in both places are telling me the weather is more like May than June.  I like it.  Cool mornings to run and not a cloud in the sky all day except for the short shower at the airport and one this morning.

Well, that is what I've been up to.  I hope to head off to Cincinnati on a side trip.  Mrs. wants to go to the American Gothic house and Cincinnati looks like a doable side trip.
Oh, wait a minute, Dr. Polt is in Ohio!  I'll be going to Cincinnati, Iowa.
