I’m going to have to get used to these new PDTs. The sounds are all so different from what I’m used to. I had used the previous model PDT for almost 15 years. That piece of electronic equipment was an extension of my arm. It was a part of me. The new model is smaller, sleeker, quicker… and noisier. The sounds these things emit are surprisingly loud.

We also had a squirrel run into our stockroom the other day. It was a panicked 5 minutes of us all trying to shoo the rodent out the door. We didn’t want to get too close, especially after we heard that some squirrels in Yosemite were found to be carrying fleas that carried the plague. I don’t know about you, but I’d like to never know what the plague feels like.
