I Petted a Sturgeon Today

I went to an aquarium today in Chattanooga, Tennessee. I petted a stingray (which I’ve done before) and a sturgeon (which I have not done before). The aquarium was very good but quite tiring.

A Russian Sturgeon, one of the species I saw today.

Since we did not want to leave the laptops in the car, I rolled them around in a rolling backpack I brought with me. It actually worked out pretty well. I hate exposing my computer batteries to heat, as I ruined a previous computer with heat exposure when I was in high school.

In other news, Putin will be inaugurated as president tomorrow, on Monday. Anyone watching the inauguration? (Confession: I watched Medvedev’s inauguration in 2008. It was quite fabulous.)
