Yesterday the temperature changed 25 degrees in 9 hours. It was wonderful to go from the upper 80's to 58 this morning. Everyone, including the dogs, felt refreshed.
We aren't taking the boat out this weekend. Instead, we ran some errands yesterday. I got a much needed hair cut. Then, my wife wanted to get waxing and a
pedicure. She asked if I wanted a pedicure as well. At first, I said "No thanks", but after seeing how much fun she was having with the foot whirlpool and the massage chair, I decided to get my feet done too. It was no big deal, but the women seemed to love it. The owner called us the "cute, loving couple".
Her toes look much better than mine, but my feet feel much better. I especially liked the "cheese grater" that was used to scrape the bottom of my feet. 'Nuff said about that, other than my soles are soft now.
We spent the night on the boat at the marina. I am going to the library today to spread out my chart and work on my assignment for advanced piloting class.
I read in the paper today about how the local bars can be an extension of home. Dive bars are extolled as places where all your friends meet to drink cheap beer. "It is a place you go after work but before you make it home....A good dive bar is like an extension of your home. It is the back room where all the odds and ends are kept." and it goes on to list those bars where you can drink and find enjoyment. I wonder at how just about everything revolves around drinking. The rooms won't be lacking for people I'm sure. And maybe that extension of the home where the odds and ends are kept has an elephant too.
Well, I am off to get a shower and head to the library. Tonight we are going to an open AA meeting instead of a dive bar.
