On the Shelf

cherylmorgan and I took three surplus shelves (including the old printer stand) down to dinogrl's school this morning, and I hope they will be of use to someone. Cheryl figured out a way to rearrange furniture temporarily to make room for the old chest of drawers back inside for a couple of weeks until we have a chance to drive it up to Oroville and give it to my father. This has involved moving one wide-short bookcase in front of two narrow-tall ones, so the bottom shelves are temporarily blocked, but this is not a big deal for the short time required.

Getting into Training

I'm working from home this morning. My plan is to catch the 12:49 Capitol (Train 532) out of Centerville bound for Sacramento. Boarding as early as I am (only the third stop) and before Oakland and Emeryville, I have some hope of finding a seat. If I'm really lucky, I might still be able to find one of the treasured "corner singles" -- single seats located in the corners of some cars, which have about 1 1/2 seats worth of space to boot.

I am not taking my computer with me on this trip. Besides, almost none of the places I'm going this weekend has internet service. I expect to be back home sometime mid-to-late Sunday, depending on the train schedules. This will be, as I recall, the longest continuous gap in my LJ entries since I started keeping it.
