Finally Friday

Sidebar: Thank God!

I woke up early on Friday morning. Since I promised my boss (or my boos as I apparently like to call her) I would make up the time for my missed Wednesday, I got ready early and headed out.

I stopped at the Looney Bakery and got a dozen mixed bagels, three salt bagels in a separate bag and a tub of cream cheese.

Sidebar: Jeff, my boss and I love salt bagels. What I didn’t know was they put a couple of salt bagels in the box, anyway.

I got to work just after 7:00 a.m. I ate my salt bagel and was happy.

Sidebar: I left my cane in the truck. It’s time to tough it out!!!

It was supposed to rain (and rain hard) today but the heavy storms moved north of us. It sprinkled off and on after noon, but that was it.

I went to Time Out for the first time in some three weeks and was waited on by a new waitress, Julie. I ordered the BBQ pulled pork with fries (the soup sounded weird), but I couldn’t finish either the sandwich or the fries. Of course, that brought the usual remarks (Wasn’t it good? – Yes, it was excellent!) (Do you want a box? – No, I’m good…)

I signed up for some company charity walk next Saturday at the Detroit Zoo. I’m not sure I will actually go (I have a graduation party in the afternoon). But, I got a free company tee-shirt, hat and a pedometer.

Sidebar: I have spent 25 years avoiding owning anything that had a company logo on it, but… I need to start walking more. PR was embarrassing.

When I left work for home, I took the leftover bagels and the cream cheese. No sense pitching them. If I can’t toast them to warm them up, I’ll feed them to the squirrels.

I checked the rain gauge and there was just a trace in it.

I filled out the ToDo List and reconciled the check register on the computer. I warmed up some meatloaf, fried potatoes and some frozen peas for dinner.

I watched some taped TV, but fell asleep by 9:00 p.m. When I woke up around midnight, it was raining. I shut the lights and TV off and went back to bed.


  1. What a great tchotchke; I love pedometers! 10,000 steps per day equals, roughly, five miles. Very nice.

  2. If you wrap the pedometer in a sock, the steps will increase if placed in a dryer on low. So I've heard.

  3. Clever! I'll catch up to Fred, yet!!!
