(+86*F.......fair......heat index +91*F)
( Best of Handel......Choral Work)
  I'm tripping out on the best of Handel's choral works, age and essential tremor has taken my voice...once a very good liturgical high tenor voice, but still remember the parts and  enjoy that period of music......I've always said; "If it's Baroque don't fix it.....sing it"
  Another hot day......but had a few errands to run, not that I'm not capable of running anymore, and went out before it got really hot..........heat  index was in the 90s today......but in December we had wind chills in the -30s........I try very hard to limit my time out in either of the 2 extremes......
  I have spent quite a bit of time today sorting through my bookmarks.....mostly deleting those that are no longer valid.......and then one of these days I really should sort through my YouTube subscriptions.....there number has now hit 264.......I really should.....but knowing me I probably won't....and most probably add to them rather then subtract.........

(+86^F.......sunny......)
( movie: "Contender)
  Had been feeling as they say "under the weather" the last couple of days and hadn't been out and did need too pickup a couple of things.....first to Aldi and then to Dollar General.......basically in opposite directions......Aldi's  expansion starts this week and they will remain open for a couple of weeks and then close for a month or so before re-opening.......be only a slight inconvenience, a a bit more expensive doing all my food shopping at the place I used to shop..actually still shop for a couple of items....but over the next few weeks will stock of on things from Aldi that I have room to store........
  So back to the walk, just need 3 things, all that should be refrigerated, and it being hot, and humid, rather then just pass by my lodgings as I normally would have done..stopped off and took care of my purchases.....and then put the back way to Dollar General.........because of the higher humidity today worked up a pretty good sweat......

(+77*F......mostly cloudy......)
("Law & Order" re-runs)
  Not a bad day weather, a little cooler, but cloudy, and higher humidity then usual....but a nice day none the last.......probably a nice day for a walk......however I've got a minor cold, sore throat, post nasal drip......plus for the first time in awhile my knees are singing a audible dirge.....luckily I took care of all pressing business and shopping I needed to do yesterday.....so am planning a quiet day.......
  Two of the cable networks get are running "Harry Potter" marathons this weekend......but except for the first one I really don't find them very entertaining......so I'll skip that one......and not much else to watch on the "boob tube" today.....so probably surf the net, and play some online games......

(+80*F.....sunny)
( Tour de France....on NBCSN )
  Took a walk earlier, wanted a cup of ice cream,, and a bottle of Gatorade, but saw that instead of a buck plus tax for 32 oz's of Gatorade......I could get Powerade...same size bottle for 65 cents......yeah I known a grand saving of 35 cents, actually 38 cents if you factor in sales tax....I come from a long line of penny pinchers ....by buying used or off brands my golf bag and 14 clubs came to about 400$ as opposed to 20K plus dollars for named brand equipment.......actually did have a Titlist 4 wood, which I got for 5$ out of a barrel at a pro shop.........took a lot of heat from the players with the high price clubs....until I beat them regularly.......

(+81*F.......fair)
(John Wayne movie "Hellfighters")
  Nice day and needed a few things so walked earlier when it was still in the 70s.....but still managed to work up a nice sweat.....gladt I was pro-active and turned the AC on in my rooms before I left......
  I've mentioned before the fact that crossing the street I live on can be an adventure......even in the cross walk and even with the walk light......well I had a close one again to day......left turn light comes on when the cross walk light does......so I saw the small SUV at the light from a side street.....no turn signal on so I assumed the car was going across not turning thru the crosswalk.......so all of sudden there it was, I stopped the SUV stopped, and we both went on are merry way......the only differnt thing was the SUV was a city police  vehicle.......dang if any body knew the traffic laws pertaining to crosswalks you'd think a policeman would .......oy vey......

(+69*F...mostly cloudy)
( a YouTube mix)
  Been a very lazy day, from my view point, I have my good days, and my not so good days, but today wasn't really either.....just one of those days when my get up and go, got up and went, and left me in my rooms......nearly fell asleep trying to watch the World Cup game.....
  I've been looking for some coasters to put under glasses of cold liquid...with no luck..was in the thrift store looking for something completely different and happen to look at the shelve of bit and pieces.....so I now have my coasters
  I always get a charge out of  it  when peeps...."I looked all over for my ( insert what ever) and found them in the last place I looked".....I what so bad to say of course you found them in the last place you looked, after all after you found (what ever)......you quit looking......oy vey
