23JUL2021 – OCF Update – The Prisoner Speaks

I’ve been washing venetian blinds all morning and am still only half done!  I’ve calculated that there are 450 individual slats to clean by hand one at a time.  Camera Girl is a harsh mistress.  Pardon my absence.  I will catch up as soon as I am released from bondage.

As a quick note I listened to ZMan’s Friday podcast and it was on “The Book of Five Rings.”  The book’s author was a 17th century Japanese swordsman named Miyamoto Musashi.  The book is ostensibly on the strategy of sword fighting but is actually a meditation on the philosophy of living in the real world.  I thought his podcast was extremely interesting and I’ll have to read book soon.  I wish the podcast was much longer it took my mind off the drudgery I am enduring.

Stay tuned.

In the flurry (or, perhaps, furry?) of activity this morning in taking Murphy to the vet, I forgot about Z’s podcast! Sounds like a great episode. I’ll give it a listen this afternoon.

As someone with a rich, buttery baritone, I will say that his voice is amazing.

We need to go to one of these Mencken Society events or the like that Z Man frequents. I would like meeting him, The Derb, etc.
