It's cloudy and in the upper 50s here. I can live with that.
TOTD: Katharine Hepburn has always been somewhat of a role model for me, although not so much in the romance department. I'd rather be alone than have a "secret" relationship with a married man for decades. I always admired her for being a tough woman in a man's world, and for telling off the HUAC people during the blacklist days. I admire anyone who risked their career and livlihood to tell those bastards off.

Mild, in the low 70s in Arlington, VA.
TOTD: George Patton. Most people don't think of war as a creative endeavor, but it is. Patton's relief of Bastogne was a combination of brilliant analysis of the intel on the ground (Patton was the only commander who saw the Ardennes offensive coming) and his drive north was the most innovative use of coordinated air and ground forces ever seen. Nobody had ever used air power to screen the flanks of ground units before. That had always been a cavalry mission.--Odysseus

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

Just another day in the Mojave desert. After a day in Las Vegas yesterday, it was back to work today.
I had an awesome deep tissue massage after work. I am so relaxed I need to move to the washing machine so I can remove my clothes and put them in the dryer. Otherwise at 8 AM I might be going into work wearing wet clothes!
The weather is nice, high 80's and it's currently 65 outside.
TOTD: My father.
