Here is the carnation in the hall. It took residence there two days ago. I found it on the ground as I left one day, and so placed it on the crown of the newel nearest our door. Sometime during the day, it migrated down the hall 20 feet to the next perch. I moved it back. The game seems to be over as of this morning.
Below is the bicycle tire which exploded this morning while having post-surgery air pumped in. At least the patch held.
