Upon arriving home, I was pleasantly surprised to find three checks awaiting me, combining for nearly $725. I also received in the mail some important paperwork from the Navy. It arrived exactly as I expected, meaning there would be some work to do on that ahead. But that could wait until Monday; in fact, given that it was already Sunday night, it would have to wait.

1 "Q" is the nautical designation for "UTC-04:00", or Eastern Daylight Time.
