Dinner out

Sherry and I going to dinner with Uzma and Jean-Marc.  Last day of utterly unnecessary grammar lessons.  When is a colon not a colon?  Friday is a joy.
Watching Morse again.  Love that Jaguar.  Ned out tonight, going to a geo-party, I guess.

Airplane Repo

Great cable show on the guys who "swipe airplanes" for a living.  Just goes to show that a great idea, well executed, can be an instant hit.  Who would have thought this particular niche would be so exciting?  But it's at least as good as Duck Dynasty!

Morse redivivus

Discovered the old Inspector Morse series on Netflix.  Haven't seen those for years.  John Thaw is a grumpy old detective with a beautiful old red Jaguar saloon that gets banged into at least once every episode.  He likes classical music and good Scotch, and always has to have one up on his lieutenant, Lewis.  Colin Dexter, the author of the Morse novels, was an interesting fellow.  Crossword champion or something.  I need to write a detective story.

Enough sleep

Only had five hours last night.  Not enough, even at my age.  They say as you get older, you don't need as much sleep.  I haven't noticed that.  I still need my eight hours to feel right.

So nice to have Monday off

I love my 4-day weeks.  And now that I can take Friday or Monday off, life is just that much more - flexible!

Trying to make the Google books app work on my iPad.  Crashes all the time.  Would be nice to have another whole source of books.  Multiple libraries I can carry in one hand.  Useful.

Learned to cook bacon in the oven, too.  This is going to come in handy!  And for Sherry, it means she doesn't have to stand at the stove tending bacon. 

One more long hot summer before we're free to avoid a good deal of it.

Football and more football

Porkchops and cognac make our Sunday perfect.  And Duck Dynasty!  World's largest duck call.

Still re-reading Antifragility, too.  Fed the veggie plants and it rained, too. No fires.
