It has been a busy stressful week and will only build more from here with necessary things to do. But it's better to be here to do these things than not be able to. That's called looking for the bright side.
I had several calls last night. Both calls were unexpected but very nice. One was from a local friend here and one from New Zealand, from a man I consider one with my sons as they are all in the exact same age group.. I thoroughly enjoyed them both. Today, I headed off to that local friends home and had lunch there and some good conversation. She came over here later and helped me with a vexing window lock problem. I have those new windows that open inward so that you can clean them but most are very hard to get locked again. That isn't good for obvious reasons including letting in cold or heat and noise.
Hey, remind me to not get those delicious buttery flavored Club crackers ever again. I LOVE those things which explains why I only get them once in a decade usually. They are so good if my belly could hold them, I'd eat them all at once.
Today was one of those days October is famous for. Blue blue, just deep blue sky, with a smattering of white puffy clouds. Temps rose from 47 this morning to a balmy 80 this mid afternoon. Gorgeous day. I was grateful for it.
We almost won that football game in OT. I am proud of how far the Vols have come. Just missed it. Just as lost, yes, but that was a well fought battle on our side this time. The guys are starting to change the culture from where it was to what it needs to be.
