Flags Half Staff for Dorothy Height

There's been a lot of memorial events for Height (and women were wearing fabulous hats, including Clinton who looked good in hers) and her funeral is today. Obama is going to speak there; he and his family wouldn't be in the White House without Dorothy's work for so many years. He ordered that all federal flags would be at half staff today to honor her.

Junie has clearly taken this lesson.

The cleaner who is coming to estimate is due anytime now, and I'll give her until 3:30pm before I go and get the new food. I'm also going to stop by the library and pick up one book and tell them that they want to give me the wrong other book. The wrong book, mentioned in the notification email yesterday, has a name very close to the one I want, and I'm sure I put the one I want on hold. For example, I knew it was going to take quite a while to get the one that I want. The library has a new catalog system and I'm wondering if it screwed up.
