Many happy returns

Yesterday many things I had lost track of returned to me.

A colleague returned a book he'd borrowed so long ago that I couldn't remember who had borrowed it.

Multiple copies of a scholarly journal arrived in the mail containing an article I wrote so long ago that I'd given up hope that it would ever see print.

Course evaluations also arrived, including some highly gratifying evaluations from the course I so enjoyed teaching during J-term but haven't thought about since February.

And then I got home and found that the cat had hocked up a hairball on the leather sofa.

Okay, so life isn't perfect, but on days like these it comes very close.

Perhaps that mouse you lost earlier in the summer was in the furball....
