Nasty

And a lousy picture to match my lousy mood...

I can't proceed with my big plans for the overhead until I have this leak fixed and know it's fixed for sure. I have to be able to crawl up in there to look and feel for dampness. That won't be so easy once I've built what I'm building. Very frustrating.

At least it rains every day this summer. Holy Cow does it ever rain! All the rain has been a mixed blessing. While it gets in the way of having a dry exterior for sealing the leaks, if it weren't for the ongoing torrential rains I never would have believed this spot leaks in the first place. I've been all over the roof and everything looks fine up there. Very frustrating indeed.

Shopping for sensation

The purest example of human shopping I know of can be seen by watching a child go through life touching absolutely everything. You’re watching that child shop for information, for understanding, for knowledge, for experience, for sensation. Especially for sensation, otherwise why would he have to touch or smell or taste or hear anything twice? Keep looking: Watch a dog. Watch a bird. Watch a bug. You might say the ant is searching for suitable food. I say he is shopping.
