I finished my re-trainer today. I'm now fully qualified to be a police officer for another year.
It's 93F out there, with a chance of a stray thunder shower. Lovely. Like we need more rain. In another hour, I'll start mowing grass, which is starting to look shaggy. In the meantime, it's laundry.
I heard a rumor, so today on the way back from training, I took a detour. A guy in Pineville has opened a saddle shop. When I walked in from the bright sunlight, into the dim shop, someone asked if I needed any help. I told them that I needed to let my eyes adjust, but I knew from the smell that I was in a leather shop.
Not that I need any saddles, but a good saddle shop is a joy of leather work. I saw some samples of this guy's work and he looks like he knows his craft. I told him I was glad to know that he is open, and that I'd be bringing him some business.
