The highlight of the day was the purchase of new cookware. We allowed ourselves to enjoy the pleasure of using it for the first time to make something that resembles ratatouille, with the fortuitous side effect of learning that a "courgette" is basically the same thing as zucchini squash.

While the ladies spent the morning out and about shopping, I meditated on today being the 154th anniversary of the turning point in the Civil War, as Union troops repulsed numerous attacks on their left flank on the second day of the Battle of Gettysburg, including the famous charge down Little Round Top by the 20th Maine, under Joshua Chamberlain. After July 2, 1863, and certainly after what is usually called "Pickett's Charge" on July 3, the South went permanently on the defensive, allowing the Union to be eventually saved.

I'll bet few people thought about that today, in preparation for the day off tomorrow.

Cheers...
