Monday 12

Monday 12- I did my stretches, ran a mile, lifted weights, and rode my bike.
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 44 and 81 degrees, WSW winds 13 to 26 with gusts up to 48 MPH, humidity around 37 percent, altocumulus clouds here and there.
According to the National Weather Service: “Tuesday: Sunny, with a high near 69. North northwest wind between 7 and 15 mph, with gusts as high as 22 mph. Tuesday Night: Mostly clear, with a low around 46. North wind between 3 and 9 mph.”
I did some more work on the Polluter’s headlights. One of the turn signals is cracked, I had to glue it and put it back on but it still doesn’t fit right. I’ll still have to do some adjustments to the frame it sits in so that it will fit properly, but not today; it’s very windy outside!
I read aloud from the textbooks: “Astronomy Today” Jupiter’s Orbital and Physical Properties, and its atmosphere; “The Cell: a Molecular Approach” Origins and the Initiation of Replication (hopefully a tiny bit of this will sink into my itty bitty brain).
I went for my evening walk listening to Astro 10: General Astronomy: How Stars Shine: The Fate of Our Sun.
I left for the community center for the board meeting and got there a little bit before 7pm; I was the only one in the audience. We all read over the agenda and minutes from the last meeting and they were approved. Mary Helen said bingo and the breakfasts will be closed for July and August. Breakfast had 44 adults and 7 children and brought in $288.50! Bingo had twenty-seven folks show up which is a recent record bringing in much needed money. The Thrift Room brought in $133 and $80 for the raffle steak knives that Patrick won. Annelies brainstormed and written a “Welcome to our Desert” flyer, that we all had suggestions to add. It was a fun meeting!
Seimi called and we talked for a long spell (80 minutes) about the chaos theory, astronomy, and stuff happening in our neighborhood; past and present.
I continued to read “Cold Harbour”. The twin sister of the agent is now in training to take over for her sister place to retrieve German plans of the Atlantic Wall. She is put taught how to fire a weapon, has to remember all the names and uniforms of the German armies, and is drilled on names of the servants at her aunt’s mansion in France, and is woken up in the middle of the night taken to a small room with a bright light focused on her and interrogated like she would by the Nazis. She passes their scrutiny and is about to be taken by a plane at night and smuggled into France. Also it seems that she has two of our heroes falling for her: the captain of the captured German fast boat and the undercover agent.
I did my stretches, practiced my guitar, wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night.

I am just a guy out in the desert amazed at the things out here where I live, the folks I call my friends, and this that we call the Internet. I am excited to share them with you!
