Finally Friday, LOL!

I woke up at 7:30 a.m. on Friday. I ate some toast and honey for breakfast while I watched the news.

I finally got around to getting shaved, showered and dressed.

I wanted to wash the truck. I'll probably be doing it in the driveway with the hose soon enough, but today I used the touch-less one just down the street. But, before I did, I went to the Checker's (just in front of CVS) and got a cheeseburger for lunch. Then I ran the truck though the car wash. I drove it home and left it in the driveway.

I ate my burger and most of the fries and then went out and toweled it dry.

Back inside, I changed into my shorts and t-shirt. After a rest on the bed, I went back out into the heat.

I got the wheelbarrow out of the shed and went back to weeding.

It didn't take much, bending over and pulling weeds, before my back started hurting. Then I had what I thought was a brilliant idea! I'd weed sitting down!!!

Now that has it's own problems. You don't have nearly as much leverage sitting as standing. But, I got a full wheelbarrow.

Then came the real problem: getting back up. I tried several ways to do it with no success. Finally, I tried holding onto the wheelbarrow and tipped it over on me.

Sidebar: I really hate looking stupid in front of my neighbors.

But I used the tipped over (and now more stable) wheelbarrow to help me up. I reloaded it and then dumped it in the field next store.

Sidebar: Next time, I'll remember to take my cane out with me.

I put the wheelbarrow back in the shed, locked it and went back inside.

I was sweating like a pig, so after another rest on the bed, I took a rinse-off shower.

I used the rest of the ham and onions to make scrambled eggs for dinner. It was much better than yesterday's omelet!

When it was dusk, the fireflies came out. They are never as numerous as back on the farm at 24 Mile Road, but I like watching them.

I watched the movie "Alex Cross." It was set in Detroit. Now here's the funny thing. Just this week, one of the news stories was about an abandoned church with amazing architecture in Detroit. Well, in the movie, there was a kickboxing match in that same old church!

I went to bed at12:30 a.m. after watching the news and the Tonight Show.
