I arrived during a tornado. The sun cut startling red and orange gashes through the tortured clouds. Today, trees were down and work crews were out. On the Georgetown Pike, the houses have pretty white fences and horses in the front garden, like in Barbie and Ken. I didn't think they existed in real life.

I got beaten up in French tonight. My opponent insulted me thoroughly, with both wit, intelligence and panache. He reminded me of the Hundred Years' War, and told me that our fight was merely a continuation of that war. When he won, he told me it was the most enjoyable fight he had had all evening, and I agreed thoroughly with him. I hope to fight him again sometime.
