hot cold water

Cold water in CHO running at 72 degrees this morning. Have to chill a few gallons to 68 Fahrenheit (20 degrees C) to develop July 4 film.

Yesterday there was the mountaintop experience, the joy of new citizens and the crowd that welcomed them as Americans. Additionally there was the off the mountain experience, the two kids walking pit bulls.

One of the APB's lunged for my Labrador. I'd called ahead, respectfully requesting that they keep a tight grip on the terriers. After the lunge I emphatically requested "control your dog."

When we were about fifty yards apart their farewell comments to me were shouts of "f**king queer."

The ideal and the real.
