07/15/18: Our neighbors were away this week, so they asked Stephie to go there each afternoon and let their dogs out. She had a great time doing that, and I went with her one day and saw this on the table. I assume it was left there so that it could be glued back together after they returned, but it looked kind of funny so I took a picture
     The family returned this weekend and we stopped over there to talk to them, and I asked them what happend. They said that the youngest daughter did it, but didn't want to talk about it. They told her she wasn't in trouble, but they wanted to know what happened. She hesitated a bit but then told her parents that she knew that Elastigirl stretched, so she thought the toy would as well. Seems logical to me.


07/14/18: This morning, my dream started out with Stephie and I on vacation. I was at a park somewhere, and there was a soccer ball that was deflated. No, that's not right. There was a small door in the side of the ball, which may not have been a soccer ball at all, and it had four screws on it. We didn't have the right size nuts to tighten the door, so I went to a Fila store. I walked up to the clerk and asked "Parlez-vous englais?", so I think I might have somewhere been in France. We got the ball sorted, and next thing I know, I was in a Wal-Mart type store, and Stephie had a shopping cart. She was buying four big bags of cotton balls, and seemed excited about it. I noticed she had a couple of bottles of liquor, and since we were in Europe, I went to the liquor department to see if they had any Vat 69 in stock. They didn't, and I woke up.
     As a bit of background to this, a few years ago I was reading a Dan Turner story in which someone mentioned Vat 69. The very next thing I read was a Michael Shane mystery, and in it, Shane buys a bottle of Vat 69 to bribe a stoolie. I thought it was a coincidence that both would pick a liquor that I'd never heard of, so I did a little research and found that Vat 69 was a pretty popular scotch in the mid-20th century (the name came about because the distiller kept trying out different recipes, and he liked the 69th one) but despite a small resurgence in the early-aughts because of the Band of Brothers mini-series on HBO, it's been unavailable in the US in its traditional bottle, as shown here. I know that because while I'm not a scotch drinker, I did spend some time trying to buy a bottle. The only way I would be able to get one would be to order it on-line, but the shipping was actually more than the price of the booze, and I was not willing to pay that for something that I might not even drink, but just put on my shelf next to my candlestick phone and my collection of Black Mask stories. I figure if we ever get back to Europe on vacation, I'll try to pick up a bottle there.
