Another tune I love.
Eileen and I went out to eat again today after church. I’m hoping that eventually we can skip the church on Sunday and just go out to eat.
I finished The Killing Hills by Offutt a few days ago. I’m afraid I can’t recommend this one. The writing is competent. But the story is pretty pedestrian. It does read like a TV series.
Our local library has a good selection of Graphic Novels. I like to just grab a handful and bring them home to read. I’m pretty sure I have read Daniel Clowes The Death-Ray before. But It bears rereading. It’s a bit dark, but I liked it.
Stumbled on to a full video of “Gore Vidal: The United States of Anxiety” on YouTube this morning. I do love Vidal. It makes me want to go back and read some of his stuff.
Last Sunday, Eileen and I waited for 45 minutes for a table at The Biscuit, had a nice lunch, then went to Meijer to grocery shop. Today, we opted for The Curragh. It was a beautiful day to eat outside. No grocery shopping today even though I still find myself with more energy than usual on Sunday morning.
My daily regimen of 25 sit-ups used to be a “near-death” experience for me. But for the last few days, this has not been the case. I feel like I could do more of them, But I have not added more and probably won’t.
On Saturday I had conversations with my daughter-in-law, Cynthia, in California and daughter, Sarah in the U.K. Cynthia called me and we had a pleasant chat. Eileen and I were scheduled for our weekly video chat with Sarah but Eileen was off gallivanting having lunch with her sisters and friends so Sarah was stuck with chatting with me. I think we both enjoyed it.
When women were first allowed to participate they apparently used live music (a pianist). Wow, who knew?
I’m listening to this right now. It definitely sounds better on my Bose speaker than the computer’s speakers.
