    Yes, he'll never forgive himself. Yes, it has nothing to do with "for love". As with my example from the start of the song, the repeated "but" gives you the structure.

    So, a couple of weeks ago I posted that we went all the way to Sequim so my wife could look for a new fake Christmas tree. But they weren't out yet.
    So today we had to go the other direction to Silverdale, where she had an appointment. Might as well look at trees while there. Wow.
    1. They are very expensive.
    2. And they look TERRIBLE! Super plasticky. Two or even three types of fake foliage on the same tree. Lights put on worse than I did on our old tree.
    I'm glad I kept the old one, which is now decorated for Halloween with orange lights, bats, ghosts, skulls, pumpkins, and assorted Doctor Who monsters.

    Along similar lines I decided to get a Togo’s #9 pastrami sandwich today as a change of pace. It’s been some time since I got one. The price was substantially higher, but also the amount of meat was noticeably smaller. It was too late to go back for more meat, but if I did that would add another three dollars. I’m not really in a position where I have to count my pennies but it is annoying to pay more for less. Also, it just didn’t seem to be as tasty as I expected or remembered. I suspect they cut back in other ways. It was a tad disappointing.

    When the batteries died on my cordless mouse, I stuck in Graham's corded one. (He had a five-button mouse, and a spare three-button. He doesn't use the back and forward buttons, and I do.) The forward button isn't working. It seems to be a problem inside the mouse.

    The scroll wheel doesn't work on mine. It may be a flaw with the ancient computer rather than the mouse itself.

    The scroll wheel on mine works so-so. It tends to stick when scrolling up. It's a Microsoft travel mouse from 2007, so I'm not outraged.
    With sufficient thrust, water towers fly just fine.
