Back in April, I took you on a little tour of The Prison Ship Martyrs Monument. They're getting ready to celebrate the monument's Centennial on November 15th, so the restoration and cleanup is almost complete.
All the fences around the monument have come down.
And the eagles are back.
They're all covered up right now because I assume they're planning a grand unveiling. The boards around this one fell down a little, so here's a peek.
Here's a view toward the city from the plaza where the monument sits.
And you can see the part of the Manhattan Bridge from there, too.
Look! Autumn color. We haz it.
When I got home, there was a big envelope waiting for me. In order to welcome me back into the warmth of its bosom, the Directors Guild of America sent me a bazillion pages of rules, regulations, and other stuff. I hope there's no test because all I'm going to read are the parts where it tells me how much I can charge on various types of jobs.
And Sony sent me this personalized thanks for buying their big-assed TV.
What else is going on? Yesterdays post is scoring beaucoup GoogleSearch hits. As of 3:00 p.m. I had already gotten the number of hits I usually get in a day. Yes, my evil plans to lure in hapless seekers of wisdom is succeeding.
And I'm either about to write a huge butt-load of words for NaNoWriMo or I'm going to quit. I owe three days worth to get back on quota.
Yesterday's post is still attracting a lot of attention (by my standards)...twice my usual traffic.
And I was just over at the Hollywood Juicer's site. The comments turned to the fact that anonymity on the web is illusory at best. I commented that anyone determined enough would figure out who you are if they really want to. This made me think back to the Dominoes Pizza Debacle. Why? Because Jim, the retired Navy Intelligence Officer was amazed that Shawn, was able to find my phone number in able to pull a prank on me. Shawn informed the highly trained Intelligence Officer that he had just dialed 411.
That just still tickles me.
(BTW, every blog linked in this update is a must read. Just sayin'.)
