Monday



It was already warm and sticky when I woke up Monday morning. But, nothing like SC, so I wasn’t even fazed.

Before I left for work, I retrieved the game tail camera (I never know when they are coming to cut the grass). I just stuck it in the office.

I went to the Newburgh Grill for lunch and got yet another of their daily specials, a gyro and the beef vegetable soup. Both were excellent and only cost me $5.79 cents. Then I walked down to CVS and got two “going way” cards, since two folks are leaving this Friday. Now normally this is handled by Michelle (my cube-mate) but since she’s one of the ones who are leaving (after nine years), I felt it was my duty. Back at work, I passed the cards around to get them signed.

The afternoon dragged (as it always does). But, finally it was 5:00 p.m. and I headed home. For a change, it was quick (WTF?) and I got home about 5:20 p.m.

I checked the game trail camera and found 116 videos, all of them daytime shots and either squirrels, birds or wind-driven foliage.  No signs of foxes, skunks or large cats. Since they had actually cut the grass today, I reset the camera and stuck it back out my alternative tree.

Sidebar, I didn’t see any sign or scat to prove that either Marty or Tom had been here, but maybe somebody got their fur!

Back inside, I started demo on the built-in shelves next to the man door in the garage. I used to store vegetables in it, but haven’t for years. So, it’s just wasted space. I got everything down except for the two boards attached to the cement block wall. Sadly, I forgot to get a picture before I took it out.

For dinner, I heated up the rest of the eggplant Parmesan and a little more of the thick spaghetti.

I watched taped TV until about 9:00 p.m. and then read until bedtime.
