Today the president awarded Bob Dylan the Medal of Freedom. That's the best new out of Washington in weeks. Good job!
Howard and Janice came by tonight and we had a wonderful visit. There's nothing quite like spending time with people you've been friends with for a long time. Harold picked up all of your umpire things - pants, shirts, pads, gear, bag, and shoes. He found a good home for them with people that need them. It's all so expensive - I remember that you umpired for a full year to make enough money to pay for the gear. I know it makes you happy to give them to somebody that needs them. He did a sectional in the heat yesterday - did three games, two at the plate. Yikes.
The only other thing of note today is that I fell up Kathy's stairs at work. I was carrying two boxes of styrofoam peanuts; she'll probably be finding peanuts behind the washer and dryer for years. I just have some bruises. I never did get this walking thing down very well, did I? I have no idea what happened. At least I fell up and not down!
The dog and I are off to bed. We have a cold front coming through tonight so it should be good sleeping weather. But it would be so much better sleeping with you.
Love you, miss you,
