If only in my dreams

Hi. Safe, sound, cramped, tired, dehydrated, the usual. More to come when I've had the chance to stop, think, read e-mail and do the various usual tasks. It's a touch over two weeks until I go back home. The ``random'' extra screening I received this time: a check of one of my carry-on bags at San Francisco International. They checked the bag with my coati plush doll, riffled through all the pages of the several books in there, and didn't think to open the change purse hooked onto the top. Don't tell them. They also on an information display (about under what circumstances prescription drugs may be brought into the country) confused the posessive its with the contractive it's. That you can tell them.

Trivia: Despite drinking 1.25 liters of water Scott Carpenter lost seven pounds during his three-orbit Mercury flight. Source: For Spacious Skies: The Uncommon Journey of a Mercury Astronaut, Scott Carpenter and Kris Stoever.
