Spelling

I watched the national spelling bee last night and I had a lot of trouble with the pronouncer. I frequently heard his v as an m and other transpositions. I think it was because he wasn't miced directly, but picked up from ambient. I'd hear the word and think "what?" and then hear the definition and think "of course."

The checks arrived today for my cash out from the refinance and to pay off the credit card that has the heat pump on it. Next week, setting up appointments for laminate vendors!

There were fireflies outside last night! Yaaay, a good part of summer! Poor Shiva was so interested he forgot about the sliding glass doors and banged his head.
