Good morning and Happy Sunday

Freshly brewed coffee is in my cup, and the South Texas sun is shining brightly.

It’s going to be another hot one, so I’ll be looking for things to do where it’s air conditioned.

Hope your day is safe and comfortable, too. I’ll check back with you later.

Good night, Saturday

At ~ 20;00 the fatigue is becoming noticeable. I was semi-zombied while lectoring at Mass this evening, but I wasn’t the only one. I’ve been treating allergy-like symptoms by mega-dosing with zyrtec. And I heard several folks at Mass with allergy coughs like mine. Wonder what’s in the air?

Watching Village of the Damned on Svengoolie at the moment. Creepy show. I may have seen snippets of it before, but this is my first time seeing the whole thing straight through. Hope it doesn’t give me nightmares tonight.

I hope we all have a good night, and a happy Sunday. I’ll check back with you then.

Good morning, Saturday

At ~ 09:30 this fine Saturday morning I’m barely awake, having crawled out of the sack less than an hour ago from one of the best night’s sleeps I’ve had in a good long while. Being fully awake probably won’t happen for another hour or so. That’s an old folks thing: waking up being a process that usually takes about two hours. Those of you who, like me, have reached a certain fullness of age will understand. The rest of you, just wait.

Today’s main chore will be serving as Lector this evening at Mass. Thank God Sylvia will be here to drive me so I won’t have to walk over to the church during the peak heat of the day! We’re still in the middle of our triple-digit heat wave, temperatures topping 100 every day for over a week now and promising to continue well into next week – at least. So a goal for today will be to spend as much time inside under the a/c as possible.

I’ll check back with you later, folks. Take care.

Good night, Friday

As Fridays go, you’ve been very good to me. And I appreciate that.

This has been a quiet, relaxing day; just what I needed; sandwiched as it is between the physically active yesterday and a busy tomorrow.

Other than working on my chess games (I am carrying a bigger load of those now than is normal for me) the most active thing I’ve done today is dinner out at a restaurant with Sylvia.

With a bellyful of good food in my system, sleep should come easily tonight. As a matter of fact, I can almost feel the tryptophan kicking in right now. And that bed over against the wall is looking mighty inviting.

Good night, everyone. I’ll get back to you tomorrow.
