Sunday 20

Sunday 20- I did my stretches.
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 41 and 60 degrees, light breeze, humidity around 32 percent, hazy skies.
According to the National Weather Service: “Monday: Partly sunny, with a high near 62. Calm wind becoming southeast between 4 and 7 mph. Monday Night: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 41. Southwest wind between 8 and 14 mph, with gusts as high as 18 mph.”
J (name withheld) called and asked if she could bring her Dell laptop over for me to finish setting it up. No problem. She brought me two old laptops she no longer needs. She had them in plastic shopping bags and the one I was carrying ripped as I tried to open the front door and the laptop fell hard on the cement, dang! I checked it out later and it didn’t work anymore, double dang. I uninstalled MacAfee anti-virus on her new laptop and then installed the newest versions of Avast anti-virus and Firefox that I downloaded the other day.
Then Seimi came by with his Toshiba laptop over so I could finish setting it up. He came with his dog Max who is 14 years old and has Alzheimer. We let him wonder around in the yard for a spell while I installed Service Packs 2 and 3, Internet Explorer 8, the newest versions of Avast anti-virus and Firefox, and sent him on his way.
I went on my evening walk and called Stoney who had called earlier to tell me that someone left a gift for me at his house and I’d never guess what it was. I had time to think about it and asked him if it was lemon cake. He said it was and asked if somebody told me. I told him no, but he didn’t believe me. Bill and Jan Bonner knows that I love lemon cake and I figured that they had Sherry deliver it; damn I good! When I arrived at his house he had nuked up some frozen dinners for us to eat. The lemon cake was sure mighty good! We watched the Science Channel program about sci-fi and physics for an hour or so.
I got home in time to watch “60 Minutes” about; a town that has fallen on really bad times, an Christian orthodox church in Turkey with a 99 percent Muslim population, Alex Baldwin, and Andy Rooney yakking something about Christmas shopping.
I spent the next few hours surfing the web and dreaming of the ultimate notebook computer I can’t afford. I did my stretches; practiced my guitar; wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night.
