No fair!

This weekend's "Crossing Jordan" episode, which I started last night and finished this morning on the exercise bike, was the first part of a crossover with another NBC show, "Las Vegas." It looks as though the conclusion was on "Las Vegas" the other night. Anyone got it on their TiVo? I may look to see if I can download it later. Fun characters from "Las Vegas;" I especially liked James Caan showing up. Probably won't add it to my viewing list, though. I have enough to watch. (Mondays let me get caught up from Sunday night!)

Last night ended up being much more eventful than I expected, including licks from three separate dogs including a gorgeous light-chocolate dog I don't think I've ever met before, a bloody nose (not mine), a sip of Belgian beer, 20-degree air and some second-hand "smoke."

This morning was sunny and clear! I may try to get outside for lunch today. Still cold, but nice enough for a trip elsewhere to get food.

Edmund Fitzgerald

Thanks to pixel39's reminder, I requested Gordon Lightfoot's "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" on WVBR, and Peter just played it a few minutes ago. The song commemorates the death of 29 men 29 years ago today, when the ore carrier Edmund Fitzgerald was lost on Lake Superior.

One way or another, I remember every year, and listen to the song. It's not an even number, but this anniversary seems particularly worth observing.
