So much has been happening, that I look at the blog, and - whoa! - a month has passed.
This month involved another trip to Saltillo, Coahuila, Mexico. Saltillo is the name of the town. The company I work for - the worlds' leading company in non-destructive testing - sold a testing system that I helped design and program to a Mexican plant that is part of a worldwide company that provides automotive parts. (the link shows a robotic testing cell we built some months ago). We needed to go back and finish up a few things. Saltillo is a nice city. It sits at about 5200 feet - 1585 meters - and it was warm, and the humidity was low. We stayed for less than a week.
The headline refers to my lovely wife of 32 years, Mrs. Dellroy. A week or so ago, she came down with a very bad back ache. We thought it was a back problem, until the doctor diagnosed it as Shingles. Mrs. Dellroy only had one little patch of blisters, as opposed to the larger breakouts we usually hear about. Three shots, four prescriptions, and a week later, she is feeling much better. One nasty surprise: our doctor tells us that when you get Shingles, you can get it again. The vaccination helps, he said.
Meanwhile, back in the Penguin Farm, I am working on a few things for SPOCS 2.51. It's not going that quickly, but hopefully I will make some headway soon.
Good Night, Ma Wolfe, wherever you are.
