Got back in the saddle

Updated this evening. The Gary Hose case is such a sad one and it’s so fracking obvious what happened there. I hope they find him and get some justice. Kudos to his brother for getting the investigation started again.

I do wonder whether that date of disappearance is accurate. I got it from NamUs, but I don’t know what they’re basing it on and some media outlets are being a bit vague, saying he was last seen sometime in either 1974 or 1975. Chances are that Gary’s parents didn’t report him missing whenever it happened.

I might find myself being more productive than usual in the next week or two. Yesterday, I don’t know what happened, I bricked my Kindle Fire. I took it out of my purse and the screen was cracked and it didn’t work anymore. I must have banged it against something but I don’t remember. Spent about 45 minutes on the phone with Amazon customer support, and we did the best we could, but it was hopeless. Fortunately it’s under warranty still. Once I send back the broken Fire, I’ll get a replacement. I was going to send it back today but unfortunately didn’t get to the post office in time.

Anyway, no more Kindle books for the moment. I’m having a bit of a rough time now generally and working on the Charley Project was the only thing all day that lifted me out of my black mood.
