Vogon felt a pull to stop in at Radio Shack today. The pull was being issued by a floor model Roboraptor marked down to $32. (Figures.) We had to buy batteries and download a PDF copy of the manual, but it was pretty funny to make it roar at Bubby. Bubby's reaction: "I'm not messing with that sh*t." Laurel loves it.

We saw Biko again today, but the firbolg turned tail and ran into the shrubbery when she saw us. One of the local cat rescue groups lends out humane traps for a refundable deposit, so we're doing that this weekend.

Saw the doc today for a regular meds checkup (I get a new scrip every 3-4 months) and discussed a lump I noticed a few days ago. It's probably a benign cyst, but she referred me for a mammogram and I'm scheduled for Monday morning. I'm thankful for free-market health care because getting the referral and appointment took less time than trying to get a regular checkup scheduled when we had Tricare. We also won't have to drive all over creation to see an in-network practice -- the office staff verified eligibility and set up an appointment with a diagnostic practice ten minutes away. This is so many kinds of awesome it almost makes my sore breast stop hurting. (Although a lot of that is applying a heating pad. Heh.)

I hope the lump is nothing much. Yay for good healthcare.

Crosses fingers for benign goodness.

I wonder why Biko's turning tail. She must be really enjoying her outdoor adventure.

Biko's been a bit standoffish since Bubby joined the household, so I think she's enjoying feeling like the alpha cat outside.

She's still enjoying a measure of her indoor royalty status outside too, since I'm refilling the bowl outside the door daily with fresh dry food.

They closed the Radio Shack in the mall near us and for the life of me I can't find one...

Re: Shady o' Rack
Have you tried http://www.radioshack.com/storelocator/ ?

My neighborhood store appears to be at the center of a 3-mile radius otherwise free of Radio Shack stores.

Sorry, no locations were found in this area.

While we have a vast network of stores, no stores were found using your current selection.

I got one 15 miles away... too far

Re: Shady o' Rack
Do you have any local stores that carry comparable stuff or do you order online?

I once lived in a rural North Carolina town (military, but shopping in town left a lot to be desired) and most of our book and hobby shopping ended up being done online. We eventually found a hole-in-the-wall computer place that stocked a lot of electronics tools, but independent bookstores were an endangered species outside of the college towns.
