Today we feature a picture of a Bedouin Couple in the Middle East. The picture was taken in the late 1800's. I really like the picture, but would have liked it more if the man had been wearing one of those big curved swords, plus a big knife. I feel like he is woefully lacking in any weaponry. Perhaps he left his hardware in the tent.
I wanted to thank everyone for the birthday wishes yesterday. I am sad to report that, as we all feared, the tractor did not materialize as a birthday gift. I will say, that the temperature here has been over 100 every day this month. The allure of the tractor and outdoor work has lost some of its shine due to this hot weather. I will start working on getting one next year. I figure a good start is that the faucet in the utility room still needs to be replaced. Mrs. PJM wants to call the plumber, but I am thinking it is a great opportunity for me to show off my handyman skills by doing it myself. I already have the new faucet, so all I have to do is put it on.
