What a day

I missed a day of posting. I don't do that often, but for some reason I fell asleep before 9:00 last night. I was awake at 3:00 and 4:00 and 5:00 but I was asleep by 9:00. Today the FBI showed picture of the suspects in the Marathon Bo... Read more
I goofed off too much today
Tuesday, April 16, 2013     

Weird start to my day. The window in the attic room was open. No biggie. The top sash was open and that is a problem as it has no screen in the top sash. And the door was open. So Mr Pussycat, an indoor cat, just *had* to check it out. As ... Read more

This, that, and the other thing
Saturday, April 13, 2013     

I hope no one took my post from yesterday as an admission that I am in depression. I was before I started to lose my weight, though not diagnosed because like any other man I didn't go to the doctor about the symptoms. But I am not now. I am doi... Read more

Shorter runs on my must run list.
Tuesday, April 09, 2013

Rethinking things
Monday, April 08, 2013
